    Should be on there somewhere.

    It is essential that you leave the white strip in place

    Hi neilparnham,

    Thanks for your entry.

    Any reference to parrot training should be removed as this header is for a completely different site.

    I need this header worked from scratch.

    Here is the template to start with:

    [​IMG]

    The blue can be changed to one of the colours in my original post, but the white border must stay.

    Thanks
    Notting

    neilparnham I really like your design, if your could replace the "seal" on the left, and change the main text that would be great.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    To give everyone a bit more material and a better idea of what I want, here are the parrots toys which I would like to be used in the header:

    http://viparrot.com/images/uploads/Parrots_Treasure.png

    http://viparrot.com/images/uploads/Tiki_Takeout.png

    http://viparrot.com/images/uploads/Tiki_Takeout.png

    http://viparrot.com/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=82

    http://viparrot.com/images/uploads/Parrot_Butterfly_Ball_Bell.jpg

    neilparnham - really like your design could you change the "multi-clicker" for one of the toys above, and if possible add one or two more of the above products to the header.

    Cheers
    Jamie

    Thanks everyone for entering, it has been a pleasure.

    I chose neilparnham as the winner for this competition. I liked his design because it is bright and fun.

    Feedback:

    ThrillingHill
    This design was a little way off what I was looking for. I was not keen on the font that you used and did not think that it would appeal to my visitors. I think that adding texture/detail to the background would have improved this design.

    RNHalawi.com
    Haven't used your services twice before I know you can come up with da shit! I think the main problem was the proportions of the images used on the header. Using larger images would have filled up the space and brought the heading together.

    weblazer
    I liked this design. The main problem was this header looked like a collection of images.

    bizdakz
    Another good design. This design would have benefited from using bigger text for the website title

    collegerut
    I'm not sure if it was intentional but the image looked a bit grainy. Needed quite a bit of work I think.
    edit: I just noticed that you didn't use the correct size for the header!! Watch out for that one in future work you do - always follow the brief/spec!

    RNHalawi.com II
    This design was a close contender. I think it lacked the depth of the winning deisng slightly.

    OVERALL:

    Thanks everyone who entered! Of course the feedback is a subjective, but if it's helped just one of you guys then I'm happy.

    Well done and thanks neilparnham!

    I expect I'll have some more contests next month so watch this space!

    Thanks again to everyone who entered.
