Header critique

Recommended Posts

I'm currently designing my fantasy hockey site, specifically working on the header.  I'd like it to look more professional, so any ideas are welcome.

Thanks! :)

So...do no replies mean it looks decent?  Or does it mean the graphic is so ugly it turned you into stone? ;)

Its not too bad.
Personally - I dont see the N as in the flag jump out at me.

Will you be using a fixed width website?

The banner does setup a dark site which Im not really into - but its what you think that counts.
Also the hockey player is a little too red IMO. I would like to see "REAL" colours - real blues, greens, and reds as is on their jerseys.

I turned into stone. Just reverted, to write this reply.

"Newport Nightslayers"??? C'mon. You can do better than that. "there will be no slaying of night, young man."...

Barf.

Haha, yeah, it's pretty bad.  I might change it, but since I suck at creating logos, I'm not sure if I can come up with a better looking option.

To the poster above you: I hear you on the player, but since he's an Edmonton Oiler -- a team whose colors don't match the fantasy team's -- I tried blending him into the color scheme.  I should scan the roster and see if there are any NJ Devils on the team to replace him with.

EDIT: Yes, my plan is for a fixed-width site.  It seems that most of the NHL sites have a fixed width, so I decided to go that route.

Well, I've decided to change the name of the team for a couple of reasons:

1. Newport Nightslayers does indeed suck

2. I don't live in Newport (the guy I was running the team with does)

So, I've decided on the Barrington Icehawks.  I've picked out the colors, but I'm having a hard time creating the logo.  I have an idea of it in my head, but my artistic 'skills' should probably be considered an affront to the laws of nature.  I want a pissed off, sylized (think something like Jim Lee would make) looking golden/yellow (something along the lines of #E0ED27) hawk head in the center of my design.  I have the lettering (yes, I like the Backslash font) and the field where the logo proper should be, but I just don't have the talent to create the hawk head.  Here's what I have so far:

It looks a lot more pixelated in person than in Photoshop...any ideas why?  In any event, I suppose I could lift an image from someplace online and change the colors, but I really don't want to if I can avoid it.  So, does anyone mind helping me out with the logo?
