    We're doing a big advertising campaign as our main project for A2 Graphics, going for something that's more visually appealing then actually functional. Anywho, doing a fictional album for a band. The 6th Album "We'll Set Fire to these Skies".

    Splash page only so far ;

    I think if it was more "set into the stone" it would look better as the IV kinda looks like its floating. Anyway tho its coollllllllllllllllllllllll gj!

    The VI does look like it's kinda floating.

    Other than that it's absolutely amazing.

    Cheers for comments.
    Did at one point when making it try to set it into the stone, but when it came to adding the fire it didn't work quite as well. Might give it another shot.

    Could do with some advice though.
    When doing the actual site pages. So far it's just going to be the background you see on the splash, but with content etc. etc. and although the content will look good (hopefully) ; I need something...more, for the background. I was considering a strip of sky at the top, making it red/orange to fit in with the album name ; but it didn't work with the dark background.

    Then considered having the top left/right corner "peeled" off revealing a red sky, flames, all that malarky. Still got to try that.

    Any suggestions open. As long as there's room in the middle for the VI

    How about

    "We'll Set these Skies on Fire"

    Sounds better that way :)

    Overall Looks Cool!

    Love it, great what you did to the site's page, with that orange-like cityscreen.
    I like the smaller fire-letters better than the big "VI" actually because the fire looks a bit more relastic there.

    Nice work on the navigation as well, good blending with the fire again ;)

    Question Sir Broken,

    I know how you got the fire effect, but what text (if any) did you use to write "VI" ...?

    Zain :D

    I'm not going live with it, as I said it's purely college work.
    I've started working on the depth a bit, IE the shadow underneath the button...area. However until I've finished the actual content I don't see much oppurtunity too. Hopefully it will be more, deep, then it is now. Cheers.

    I love this one
    My least favorite part is the buttons. They feel too regular imo.
