Tom Goss Music
I'm an independent musician based out of Washington, DC.
Music listeners and music press. My audience tends to skew older and more male than the top 40 chart folks but the design needs to be clean and fresh to engage publicity and listeners alike.
I'm developing a new website and I need a banner for the top of the website. The design needs to be in line with the rest of my imagery. I like clean design and warm colors. Right now the color on the site is blue but I can adjust that as needed. The new album has a yellow look to it. I've attached the full design of the new album for reference. I'd like to keep the feel of this in that same style.
The design needs to be engaging. It will be at the top of every page on the site.

That's the website in progress. You'll see the blank photo at the top where I've just pasted stuff for now. Dimensions are width960 height305.
The problem I'm running into is that most of my pics are vertical and this is a very horizontal image. I need someone who can weave a couple images together seamlessly to create one cohesive image. It might be nice to use the bright lights behind it like the album cover but that's up to you.
I'd like to use 2 or 3 different images, playing, standing etc... to get a spectrum. Reference: http://soundtracktomyday.blogspot.com/
Now I don't want that design, it's done by someone who doesn't have design experience so the effect is limited but I like his idea.
I've also attached my logo for integration into the design.
Please let me know if there are any more questions.
