YouTube Channel Design - Banner Image Map

One of the benefits of being a YouTube Partner is being able to put Image Map with your banner. You can use this with your banner image to put links to other website or links. To do this you could either use Adobe Fireworks or Dreamweaver, but I chose to use a free website Image Map Tool as I didn't want to download or pay for these programs just to do one thing.

The only problem with using this website was with the links, for some reason after formatting the links would move and I had to change where they sit on the image to counteract this. If you look at the above image the links are off a little, then after generating the code they would cover the image (well nearly).

Above my YouTube channels page with the image mapped with links. The white square is where an advert was.

New Tippett Pics Header Image

This is the new banner for my Dad's blog 'Tippett Pics', where sometimes I'll post a picture or too as well. The main focus of this blog is Point Lonsdale, where my Father lives. You'll find images of the beach, boats, and things in his garden.

The images from the header were taken a few weeks back at Point Lonsdale light house, using the Hipstamatic app on an Iphone 3gs, then compiled with Photoshop.

YouTube Channel Design

I've been redesigning Queenie's Youtube channel, she's been getting plenty of new subscribers so I thought I'd would give her page a face lift.

First draft Header
The first draft header I used pictures of the Queen, with a text style similar to Lady Ga Ga text that I saw in a magazine.
Second draft Header (final)
With the second draft I removed 3 pictures of the Queen, added a picture of Queenie and one of Port Fairy Jetty. Also I replaced the colour pink with purple, as queenie prefers purple.

Screen of full Queenie's Youtube Chanel with updated background
I also updated her background, with similar text to the header (to keep it consistent); added photo's from the web and also from her own person library. I added borders to the images, adjusted to black & white, posterise layer effect, drop shadow effect (50% transparency) and added a black colour fill (50% transparency).

If anyone would like to have there Youtube Channel redesigned let me know, drop me a line.

K-Tigers Poster

This is a poster for a K-Tigers Taekwondo centre (YouTube Channel). They had a basic word file with all the details and basic idea as to how they would like it to look, all I did was placed the text, and already made logo's in Photoshop and reformatted them. This should look good in colour as well as black and white.

Ron Mueck Exhibition

Photo's taken of the Ron Mueck exhibition back on the 18th of August 2010. It was great to be able to take these photo's at this exhibition. You could take photo's but not video. Also this was one of the last days of the exhibition, and it was packed full of people which gave it some sort of celebrity event or even a football match.
