I just had an idea,

Since the banner is too short to look right if the width is increased
to fill the rest of the header, howabout a second (more square-ish)
banner about The Document Foundation? Quick demo of duel banner

 From the looks of the screenshot, I'd say we may have to resort to a
non-standard resolution to fit it in nicely with the header...

I'm thinking something that has the same height as the logo, and
follows the same spacing conventions, filling the right-side of the
header. This is making
better use of the space by keeping the text at the right (*VERY* quick
GIMP mockup)

I agree - filling all the empty space with a banner attracts more attention.

I don't think that we need to add the "Home of the LibreOffice Productivity
Suite" text at the side of the banner. It can cover all the area at the
right side of the logo - if we really need the "Productivity Suite"
information in the header, it might find a place inside the banner.

About the height: We'll probably need mockups to compare 60px height to 45px
height (the height of the logo), but I think every smaller banner than 60px
might have too less space for the content.  And this
alternative is simply inserting a full width banner over the header
(this is done by nesting<a><div style="width:100%;"><img
/></div></a>.) - again, a pretty quick knock up in gimp.

We should avoid adding a full width banner over the page header:
Even if this would be the best eye-catcher, it would move the content even
further down, causing people to scroll for important content.

Already on the main page this would cause me not to be informed about the
TDF Blog and Twitter at all - why should I scroll?

Best regards
