concerning your suggestion:
why don't you like the background gradient? and what would you suggest
as replacement for it?

i didn't really understand this:
"but putting some floor's (or even border's) shadows on the document

do you mean a shadow for the document symbol? i tried that but didn't
like it, because i think it breaks the "document" style a bit.

Hi Tobias,

Very quickly reply: I like very much your banner! I think it's very 
attractive, simple and absolutely nice! :D
My only suggestion is to take off the radial light gradient in the 
middle of the background. Or keep it, but putting some floor's (or even 
border's) shadows on the document symbol. I think it's worth to try. :)

the word cloud thing is a bit tricky...
if it is well readable, it doesn't look very good, and if it looks good
you can't really read it^^

i tried to have a a bit of both in the new version.

the space between the words is bigger now, and different for every word.
this improves the "word cloud impression" a bit, but it is still
i hope the space between "donate now" and the document symbol is big
enough now;)

The distance of the logo (in your case the symbol at the bottom of the
banner) to every graphical element outside the logo shouldn't be less
than half the width of the symbol.

As the symbol reached nearly the borders of the banner, elements put
beside the banner could have compromised the symbol - reducing the
visual impression we want to achieve with our logo and it's elements.

But in your new version (I add the link again:
this is much better! Only the vertical distance especially to the
"Donate now!" badge is a bit small.

if you have futher suggestions, just tell me ;)

The word cloud is much easier to read :-)

Unfortunately this reduces the impression of a word cloud a bit. Did you
try to have a bit more space between the single words?

I don't know, if this works and stays readable - perhaps with more
different font sizes, using green and large font for one word only, some
smaller and green, some larger and grey?

Just an idea - might be totally wrong...

Best regards


ps: why does the the svg file have such an ugly preview?
The preview is better than none as we had it on the OOo wiki ;-)

But honestly I don't know. Some SVG images are rendered well, Some other
have problems with text and underlying graphics, some don't show the SVG
at all. Turning the text into path helps sometimes, but this is no
option for text we probably want to modify / translate  later on.
