for your consideration

hbd day is just around the corner — it comes around so fast every year! — so i fiddled with trying to make some banners. see what you think. any suggestions? colors? fonts? styles? wording? give up trying to make banners, hbd chick? (~_^)

please, feel free to make some banners for the day if you’re better at photoshop than me (which isn’t hard to achieve…)!

click on images for LARGER view (should open in new tab/window):

you get the idea. (^_^)

  1. I think it needs to be something fun, whimsical, inviting, because truth and reality are not very pretty.

    This was done with a FB app called Unescoapp.

  2. I love the tagline ‘everybody’s different’– a nice nod to the true diversity of which many blank-slatists shallowly sing the praises but are loathe to admit the real consequences.

    I also agree, and I may be in the minority, that at least at first it should focus on traits that are widely admired and not widely disparaged. Every coin’s got two sides. I’ve heard some converted-to-HBD people say for example that one thing that really pushed them over the fence was admitting West Africans’ obvious superiority in certain athletic endeavors.

    And I like rjp‘s fun banner, agree it should be something light and whimsical looking. This weekend I’ll see if I can cook up some banners too.

  3. @rjp – “I think it needs to be something fun, whimsical, inviting, because truth and reality are not very pretty.”

    fun is good! but i think those letters were a little too fun. (~_^) more appropriate for kids, i think. we are trying to appeal to adults (hopefully!).

    @m.g. – “I love the tagline ‘everybody’s different’– a nice nod to the true diversity of which many blank-slatists shallowly sing the praises but are loathe to admit the real consequences.”

    the best hbd tagline i’ve seen is the one richard spencer’s got on the hbd blog over @alternativeright: “because people are different.” i’d really like to use that one, but i don’t suppose we can steal it from him. maybe if we asked him really nicely. (^_^)

    “everybody’s different” is the best that i could come up with. a clever, catchy tagline of some sort would be very … clever and catchy! (^_^)

    @m.g. – “This weekend I’ll see if I can cook up some banners too.”

    yes, please! like i said, my photoshop skillz are pretty basic. and i have dead boring taste, too. everything would be blue and white if i designed it … with maybe a little gray thrown in for flair. (~_^)

  4. Good stuff.

    Any ideas on how to conduct a poll? My idea is that we should first vote May 2nd up or down, and if it goes down we vote on another day. What’s a good place for a poll that we can invite Richard Spencer and the folks to?

    polldaddy.com is the survey site i’ve seen used most (i think). never used it myself.

    blogger also has it’s own poll widget thingie you could use. (^_^)

    maybe it should be children to whom we are appealing. children are the only ones who can see. the eyes of innocence.

    children prefer their own kind, it is only under threat, that parents concede to their children’s brainwashing, that children choose otherwise.

  7. I put up some more HBD Day banner ideas at my blog. Lots of different styles are possible, maybe people could give some feedback as to what they think would look most appropriate?
