Board Customisation

Hi everyone ,

The Fan Forum Graphics Team is in the process of (re)customising message boards and now it's your turn!

If you have any picture or colour suggestions please post them in this thread. Don't post (hotlink) the pictures, links to them are fine. Make sure that the pictures are of as high quality as possible and that the top of the head of the person in the picture isn't cropped off. We also like to use photoshoot images when possible, preferably individual pictures of each cast member. When suggesting colours please keep in mind that some colours will work better than others. The Team usually tries to avoid really vibrant and dark colours because we have found in the past that they are hard to look at for long periods of time. If you would like some help coming up with colour combinations we recommend checking out the design seeds website.

Everyone is encouraged to voice their opinions for this as you are the ones who will be posting on the board and we hope to make as many people happy with the finished result as possible. It does not matter if you are a board moderator, regular poster, or casual poster here. If you have a suggestion, please share it here with us .

Your suggestions for possible pictures and colours will be taken into serious consideration, but in the interest of seeing every board receive the best customised look possible the final decision concerning how this board will be customised will be made by the members of the Graphics Team. This is because we want to make sure that the selected graphic and colours fit into the overall design scheme that we've established for Fan Forum.

For a full explanation of the message board customisation process, see this thread. If you have any questions, please feel free to send Rae or Mel a PM or ask the Team on the message board customisation thread.

Please leave this topped until a week or so after the board has been (re)customised.

Note: It usually takes less than two weeks for us to finish making the new banner and the sooner we know what you want, the more we can work on it (though it can take a few months or so to set it up with the new colours on the board), so please let us know your suggestions as soon as possible.

When the Team have made and voted on a winning graphic I will close this thread until the graphic and colours get put up. It will then be re-opened so that you can share your thoughts about it.

Rae and Mel

I know we can't use red as a base, but I would like to see some more rustic colors. Maybe like a burnt orangish red, brown, beige. I'm burnt out on blue, but it could work.

Just because we do not use it as a base does not mean it cannot be used elsewhere in the customisation . There are lots of rustic colour schemes out there with soft colours which can be used for the base and then the oranges and reds for the borders, links, and buttons if those are the colours wanted here.


Who are the main characters which should be included in the graphic? I know there are these pictures here but I have no idea if there are better ones or more choices elsewhere?

I'm not a big fan of this Promotional shoot 001. It's very boring.

The posters for S2 look great but their colors are going to be a pain to match. 002

I can try them with both. We don't have many options.

Ideas for pictures:

I've always been a fan of this certain photoshoot, including this and this (need to search for a larger pic, I might have it on my computer somewhere, I've used it before) one. They're also pretty easy to work with, because of the light backgrounds Only problem is that Rose is not Liv (a.k.a. not wearing her white wig) in these pics. There are few promo pics including her as Liv going around on the internet, unfortunately....

Josie, I definitely love those colorful S2 posters! They're hard to work with because of the intense colors, but maybe someone can make something of it If we have to use one of these promotional shoots, because they're the only shoots including Rose ás Liv, I'd definitely try those S2 posters first The S1 posters are a bit boring indeed.

Ideas for colors:

When I think of iZombie, I think of (light) grey (maybe as a base?), light pink (the brains she eats are always pink ), and red/magenta/purple-ish.

Some palets on Design seeds that I think would fit the board well:
[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6]

The S1 photoshoot might look boring but I think that it's easier to work with those pictures than the S2 ones. Esp in terms of matching skin colors etc. If the S2 photoshoot is what's preferably I'm sure that we can work around it although I'd recommend using the first one.

To add to what Rora said, interesting colours mean very little when you can't make it look good in a banner. The colours won't be the same so I don't see how that would be of importance.

Using the S1 shoot is fine by me, since the S2 shoot is so tough to make into a banner They'll always look pretty and cool anyway

Someone have anything to add to the examples of color schemes I put in my previous post?

The color schemes you selected are spot on! So fitting!
