Which banner do you like better?
« on: May 23, 2018, 03:44:20 AM »
Hey there, my typographer gave me a couple banner options for a LitRPG promo I might do in the near future, and I'd love your feedback on which (if either) you like or don't. Thank you!


1.




2.

A difficult choice, they're both really good but I eventually chose 2.

I prefer 2 as it's easier to read. In no. 1, some of the words are against a paler background the side of the planet and so are harder to read.

Overall, a very professional banner. Good luck with your novel.  :)

This.  Depending on the actual size of the banner, the smaller-print text might be hard to read.  Or even see.  Even in image #2, the left side of the text has some similar visibility issue.

Both are good. Two is more visually interesting.

I like both of them as they are booth really nice but I prefer the first one just a bit as I think it would be easier to read when its displayed smaller.

Just as an overall impression ... #2. It's much more eye-catching.

I like #1 because it is less cluttered. Both are okay.

Hi everyone, I just wanted to say thank you so much for everyone who shared their feedback, I really appreciate it!

The take home message  seems to be 2... but maybe make the blurb just a bit bigger. - Thanks!

I'll throw in my vote for #2 ... the trim size is nicer.
