    So I've been working on a banner for my stepdads forum for a couple days in my free time and I figured a little constructive criticim from iptf members would be good. So without further adoo, my banner
    Do Not click the preview instead open it in a new tab because iptf squishes it and makes it really tall
    [edit] fixed the text

    The text on the right seems squished to me. It is also pretty bland. It doesn't look bad, but it's just not interesting. Trying adding more color, and some pictures. Try to make the forum look unique, and not just another quickly thrown together one.

    I'm not crazy about the things on the end but here's a tip; On the little ribbon thing, where it says "CIR" take the distort tool and make it look like it's written on there instead of static text.
