Board Customization

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 Mel, Catia or Chelle 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.

Mel, Catia and Chelle

My opinion is meaningless as the chances of me having the time to post here are slim but i was thinking washed out browny/blues could work (like these). I feel the show uses a lot of washed out colours. Then you've of course got the reds & teals the women wear (which even thelater is muted) which could be used in small areas/as highlights. Anyway, that's my two cents

I haven't been able to find any promotional pictures without text not sure if there are any or if we'll have to use episode stills?

I only found these pictures with the text too.. it would be great if there are somewhere without the text, but maybe it's possible we can use them?

Yeah those are the ones I found as well, I just couldn't hunt them down & link to them from my phone. I don't think they would be usable, the text on most of them goes up to the bottom of their faces . Alexis/Emily is probably the only good one

Presumably, yes. Like i already said

I think the more important question is which characters should be included? When you all get the chance to think about things of course

I think it should be June (Elisabeth Moss), Emily (Alexis), Serena (Yvonne Strahovski), Commander (Joseph Fiennes), Moira (Samira Wiley) and perhaps Luke (OT Fagbenle)
Maybe aunt Lydia as well?

Not sure what everyone else thinks?

I was presuming June, Serena, & the Commander then Moira, Emily, & Luke were my other thoughts. I was also thinking Nick? But the six could be good. I don't know that Aunt Lydia is needed but it would show that side of the show/world

June / 2
Serena / 2
Commander / 2
Emily / Emily
Moira I can't see a usable pic for
There's quite a few of Luke here

June is the lead then I'd say Luke & Moira should be on one side of her, then Serena, the Commander, & Emily on the other side. That splits the people from her past on one side & the people from her present on the other. I'd put Moira, Luke, June, Commander, Serena, Emily possibly personally (or Emily, Serena, Commander, June, Luke, Moira as that may work better with the pictures )

I think that would be a good order... Nick (Max Minghella) could also be part yes

as for colors I do like the ones you put below the 'like' link! though with a shade of red would be nice given that is the colour of the show really! Though I do understand that red is a very difficult colour in your customizations!

I don't think this one is good enough for Moira?

I did find this one without any words for Moira [1]

Or June? and Nick?

Serena and Aunt Lydia? the Commander? and perhaps using this one for Emily? Since her face isn't covered in text?

oh found this one from Luke!


These are on the official HULU site? though nothing with June in costume sadly

You definitely need red in somewhere (unfortunately, but used minimally its not too bad)

That's not too bad for Moira, but it is cut. The without the text version should be good though . Although would you want Moira in costume? I guess if we have no other options

Glad you found some without text for a couple of the characters

I'm okay with her in costume.. or without.. It would be nice if some were in costume in the banner since that's the costume the show is most known for!

Glad I was able to find some too, I thought there were none

True, its just not really what she's seen wearing mostly from what I've seen (I've got two eps to go)

So did I as I kept looking but could only find the text versions. But never checked official sites (silly me )
