Illustrate a header for a website

  • Winner: mckirbz

Contest Brief

I need a simple header for the photography section of my website, similar to file "[url removed, login to view]" used as a header at the home section of my site ([url removed, login to view])

The graphic should use a similar style and color scheme, and the background color needs to be the same (but editable).
Perhaps a nature photographer on top of a mountain or trees (instead of buildings) taking a photo, or with camera equipment around the neck or similar.
This is only a suggestion, and I would really like to see something I wouldn't have thought of my self. See my photography to try to get an idea of who I am, if you like ([url removed, login to view])
Humor is very welcome and appreciated.

Requirements
1. The vector graphic should be delivered as a layered Adobe Illustrator file
2. Use the template provided ([url removed, login to view]). The caricature face is included in the template and needs to be incorporated in the graphic. Feel free to move the face around.
3. The text "Aabjørn's Photography" needs to be incorporated, but just as a draft. I will be adding the text my self at the end.
4. Size: 1500x1000 px (width x height)
5. Similar illustration style and color scheme. Please use the red accent color wisely.
6. Same background color. The background should remain plain.

    OK designers! #12 and #15 showcase exactly what I am looking for. But for any future participants/entries in the last week of the competition, please surprise me. I don't want another example of mountains and trees. Maybe some other type of landscape? Or the figure taking a selfportrait? The theme is still photography, and the same rules apply, but be creative and show me something different. I am already having a difficult time deciding between #12 and #15, please don't make it even harder with another similar illustration!

    Take a look at entries #12 and #13.
    Both are beautiful and complete illustrations. One of them is an example of exactly what I'm looking for and the other an example of what will not work at all!
    #12:
    The style is similar to Header.png
    The background is kept plain and in the color I have asked for
    The illustration is not cropped/cut by the right and left borders
    The bottom right corner is left empty

    #13
    The style is too realistic
    The background is not a large, plain, monochrome area
    The illustration is being cropped/cut on both the right and left edges
    The bottom right corner is not left empty.

    Please have these things in mind, and follow the specified guidelines from the project description and template.

    Another clarification: Notice how a large area of empty background is added to both the right and the left of the illustration, so elements that end abruptly at the right and left borders won't work well. The bottom border should be the only one "cutting" any elements of the illustration. I have uploaded a new template (Template2.ai) in order to clarify this.

    Please feel free to move the face within the template.
    I would be happy to see a different outfit on the figure.
    Please leave the background as plain as possible, and concentrate on detailing for the foreground.
