    new Banner?

    Namaste,

    I have been thinking of changing the banner of HDF i.e. the picture you see at the top of the site. However, I am not very artistic and don't know how to make a nice logo. If you want to share with me your ideas, please post the pics here.

    I really like Sahas' signature logo but that's his signature logo... so something similar would be cool.

    any ideas?

    namast


    If I were re-doing the banner I'd think of a few things:

    • Is there a design that graphically depicts the essence of HDF? Can it be captured ?
    • Keeping it simple - easy to view, not busy
    • Elegant but not formal - keeping the dignity of HDF
    • Sanātana dharma centric
    Now perhaps we can find the components, then assemble the artwork into a banner/graphic. Perhaps this a possible approach?

    As I gather, we have quite a few members here who have artistic mindset. They can definitely help create a good design within the parameters suggested by Yajvan.

    Pranam Satay

    If you are looking to include caption to go with the logo, may be you might want to consider, satyam-eva jayate सत्यमेव जयते) (Sanskrit: "Truth Alone Triumphs" or asato ma sadgamaya-----or in keeping with the dignity of HDF Let us hear and speak that which is auspicious Om bhadram karne-bhih srunuyama devah -----


    Jai Shree Krishna
    Rig Veda list only 33 devas, they are all propitiated, worthy off our worship, all other names of gods are derivative from this 33 originals,
    Bhagvat Gita; Shree Krishna says Chapter 3.11 devan bhavayatanena te deva bhavayantu vah parasparam bhavayantah sreyah param avapsyatha Chapter 17.4 yajante sattvika devan yaksa-raksamsi rajasah pretan bhuta-ganams canye yajante tamasa janah
    The world disappears in him. He is the peaceful, the good, the one without a second.

    That's a nice quote. Maybe other colors, and a background and different fonts. Just an idea.

    Satay, I'm not too shabby with graphic design, I can try something out.

    It seems you want something more traditional, my style however would tend more towards a collage of photos and/or paintings and quote and title with an ethereal feel, most probably still using still blue and orange as the pallete.

    namaste,
    I was thinking it to be a strip of pictures of god(s) with an OM in the center or 'agni' in the center. I also want to incoroprate flag of india or a saffron flag of hinduism in the logo but not sure exactly how this will all look.

    Did I say I am not artistic. Right part of my brain is almost dead.

    Namaste Satey,
    take your time and mull over it for a few weeks and if possible post the logos here and let everyone see and take their opinions as well. Putting a flag of one nation in my opinion is restrictive and even offensive to some, myself Iam a naturalized american citizen. Religion crosses all barriers. More importantly this is the future faith of all lands, and i am not kidding.
