I need a LOGO.... NOT a Favicon... any ideas? The lightbulb isn't a good enough logo... I want something that symbolizes an online encyclopedia... maybe like an open book with my site's name in small text on top of logo, "You Can Never" and on bottom of logo, "Be Too Smart". Any ideas of logos or how I can create one?

I can actually do miraculus things with MS Excel... it makes aligning text to fit a picture so much easier.

Powerpoint? I would either recommend http://www.istockphoto.com but you have to pay for that although Yola just made a discount when you buy it for your Yola site you get like 30% off or something. I would also recommend http://sitebuilder.yola.com/sites/D42... for free graphics.

Just reminds me paint.net is good an alternative to photoshop pretty much as good and free. Best for newbies to the graphic world as stuff like GIMP could be a bit tricky to use.

Oh he has designed that he is a graphic designer. When you create a banner do you see where it says "click here to change your banner design", well he has clicked that and added a custom banner.

actually, where the bird character is, we don't even have access to that area. Anything below the bottom (where it says, build a free site) we can't put anything below that like he did.

well... any ideas? I guess I would suggest... YOU CAN NEVER on left and BE TOO SMART on right?

Or a better idea....

if you can think of a slogan or subtitle... put the title on left and slogan/subtitle on right.

Something else... where should I put it? Right now I have a picture of a girl... but it's embedded into the banner PAPA created for me, I'd have to change the banner to replace the girl.

Yeah if you gave me the dimensions I could make the book the right size. I will also work on the text now.

I have another idea... instead of adding the title in the book... see if you can add a slogan or subtitle... maybe... Your Free Online Encyclopedia or something... then looking at my banner... use the similar look and put You Can Never Be Too Smart - vertically to the right of the logo... this will create an actual banner.. If you're able to do this, it'll be greatly appreciated... use your own discretion for font type, size, and color.

I think that we should have a picture in the space or on the other page to make it look a bit more interesting.

it looks pretty good, but I still have the problem with the other picture/banner. Where am I going to put this one? It's almost as if I need a new banner.
