Okay, I wasn't 100% sure where to post this so I thought I'd bunk it in the pit

Okay, so I have a band with a MySpace and stuff, I was thinking how could I make it look more professional?

Eg; MySpace Layouts, Logo's, Banner's etc etc

I go on other [unsigned] bands MySpaces and theres looks really professional. They have posters they've made advertising gigs and stuff. Is there a programme which will allow me to make banners and logos without the boring and amaturish white backgrounds with a font ripped off from a font sight?

Hope you understand what I'm getting at.

THANKS ALOT

Jack.

I make all my own myspace graphics. Just need a basic knowledge of html and any image manipulation package (hell, I use Serif DrawPlus, which is vector based. I can't afford Photoshop!). You'll find my myspace through the link in my sig (or clicking on the correct brick in the wall ).

promoters should give the band a digital version of gig posters that they can put on their myspace. that'll be the posters that you're on about. for proffessionalism, get a good photgrapher to take insane photo's and learn some myspace codes to help you do cool things with your page.

Go on ebay and look up custom logo design, me and a bud design logo's we're probably the cheapest on there, we usually sell them for $14-16, others you can get for $50 up to $200.

Thats if you want to pay to have some services done.

div overlays are what distinguish regular myspaces from the awesome looking ones.

I'd rather DIY. A no cost way is preferred...

So... Photoshop?

I download it and set it up. I can create a poster advertising our summer programme easily, without an amaturish white background? Plus a logo or two and banners and 'Thanks for the add' thingys aswell?

Thanks again.

actually, white background is pretty pro.
most bands have all these colors everywhere and it just makes it an eyesore. if you want to look hardcore, put maybe a banner up, have pictures of each band member and their names, promotion banners (with codes), and the rest just leave it alone. trust me, it'll be kool.

Thanks, I'm going to look into downloading photoshop to do what you mentioned about the pictures...

Some look an eyesore, true, but some looks pretty cool, I guess I'll look into photoshop...

I won't have pictures for a bit, we're yet to play live under the current line-up, we have a summer programme starting friday

I'll check out your bands myspace

Thanks To All

Layout and art.

I can do that, if you want. I've finished college for the year and I'm as bored as a fox.

Check this out, see if it's the kind of standard you meant.

Pay people. Seriously, that's all you have to do.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Am I only the one that thinks this is a scam?

EDIT: He's just joined and every single post pretty much is about him making graphics and even included a picture that said 'example' and said its there because someone stole it last time. Huge Scam
