Explosion Web Banner
This web banner would be located at the top of a web page and will be one of the things that is seen
straight away by the audience.
To create this banner, I found a high quality image of an explosion and put it
into my Photoshop after setting the page size to 468x60 pixels. I positioned
The image to give a glimpse of the explosion, not making it the main focus but
making sure that people can tell what it is. After this I played around with the
Hue/Saturation of the image, making it a deeper orange/red. I then layered the
appropriate writing/information on top of the image, adding a drop shadow to
make the words really stand out against the explosion in the background.
I like this web banner because it’s very in your face but yet remains simple. I also like how the words
match the image to reinforce the fact that the product is ‘exploding with energy’.
To compare with other types of banner like the one I created I found one on a popular website. There
are images used, logos and all the information that may be needed on the banner.
Possible improvements could include using an image of the product to show people what it actually
looks like so that they are not expecting a tin with explosions on or something. Another
improvement/change I could make could be to put the ‘Barr’ logo on so people know what company
Looking at other web banners, possible considerations could be the fact that many of the banners
have animations in them. If this banner were to be animated, the explosion could go off and
seemingly throw the words featured on the banner at the screen.
Lift Web Banner
This web banner is an example of one that would be located at the
side of a web page.
I have used the main colours that feature on every other product of Irn
Bru so that people will instantly recognise it as being an Irn Bru
The page for this banner was set at 120x600 pixels so I had to
squeeze the image to fit the majority of the spotlight in. However, I
feel like it worked well and the message gets across to the
reader/audience. The tin has a drop shadow on it so that it looks like it
is actually in the light and creating a shadow while been lifted off the
ground. I have included the name of the product underneath the
product however, after thinking about it, I could replace it with the
‘Barr’ logo or maybe even keep the ‘Irn Bru 32’ and have the Barr logo
just above it.
Compared to other web banners styled like this I could think of the
possibilities of adding some animation in there if it was going to be a
professionally created web banner. Both banners have used images
and text relevant to what is being advertised and other relevant
information about the advertisement.
Other improvements could be to fill some more space. I could make
the words at the top bigger so they fill space and become easier to
Alarm Web Banner
On this banner I had a lot more space than the others to work with. Also with this banner it is
aimed at being animated, with the tin of Irn Bru 32 shaking from side to side as if it was an
alarm clock going off.
The things I like on this banner is the way I warped the ‘Wakey Wakey’ to fit around the tin to
resemble motion lines. I did this by right clicking and selecting ‘Warp’ while the shape was
selected. I then chose ‘Custom’ and ‘Arc’ to get the curve. Finally, I
adjusted the warp to make the words fit around the tin.
Also, to achieve the motion style look, I lowered the opacity of the
two diagonal tins to make it look like the tin is shaking.
Another inspiration I got from this web banner is to have an alarm
clock going off but instead of numbers, it would only have little Irn Bru 32
tins and the tagline could be along the lines of ‘It’s always time for an Irn
Compared to other web banners of
this style, mine is a bit more simple
but still gets the message across
and has the chance to be
If I was to improve this banner
I would add the ‘Barr’ logo to one
of the spare corners, just to fill a
bit more space.
