I recently created my first ever banner for The Orlando Original, which is my blog for all things Magic as well as sports in general. I used Adobe Illustrator to create my logo, which is a blue basketball with black accents and white lettering. The background of the banner is a picture of some bubble glass that I took in my digital photography class. The middle of the banner reads “blogging about:” kind of like the “now showing” sign at the movies. Underneath I used free transform and tilted the word “sports” and then painted a box around it to give the feel that it had been stamped on. In the bottom right corner of the banner is my Twitter handle incase my readers want to follow me, above that is a picture of my face so my readers feel like they are talking to me in person.
