    Why do I find it comical that he's starting a web design business but can't come up with his own banner? :p

    Yeah, he should probably learn to design first.

    Edit: This is in reference to the Web 2.0 crazy of stupid primary-school-style colours and design; the gay reference is not intended to offend black people or people or those minging gingers, and is certainly not talking about the OP or the OP's friend. It could be talking about me, though, since obviously one has to be slightly deranged and mentally ill to produce the pile of crap above this elongated paragraph :)

    You paid a fortune for that font, didn't you? :p

    edit: I see what you did there. Tricky! Looks like one of those Sans-something fonts only available for £49 from Adobe.

    No, his banner should be in his style else it's pointless.

    Client: "I like the style of your banner"
    Him: "...."

    Sorry but thats utter ********.

    I design websites/graphics and if you can't come up with different ideas, you cannot be in the trade.

    If he needs other people to think of different styles and ideas, within two weeks he'll be stuck doing other peoples sites.

    If he doesn't enjoy designing, or simply can't do it, why is he setting up a web design business? :rolleyes:
