This is a sample of what we are pulling together for the banner for the new EXPERIENCES (stories) main landing page. NOW... There is a key thing to note --- this is only seen by users who are not logged in. So many of you who are going to review this... well, it's not really directed at you per se.
I need you to think back to first coming to EP. You have landed on the main groups page... and there is a banner at the top of the page that is loosely giving you some direction / info about where you are at within the site. As the EXPERIENCES (story) section is a key jumping off point where people start to understand the power of sharing and stories and words. We wanted something that conveyed that... we went down this path before with a different treatment, but the "ghost whisperer" as I like to call him.... well, he didn't work for many of you.
With that in mind, we tried something new and incorporated a new image mage of words that at this resolution you cannot read, however, in the banner space you will be able to read the words that make up her face, her eyes, her hair, etc.
Thoughts? Do you like the image with the text? As always please share your comments.
