    Who were the designers of those banners in the opening post? Never seen them before, they must be older banners which were used.

    What about the current one?

    Do you also change the background as well or it stays the same?

    PS: Cricketfan96 That's good :clap

    Not bad, the light one isn't as good. I did say only lower case or only upper case. You have used a capital C.

    The Pak v SA banner was made by AmmarAshraf but all the other banners in the OP and the one at the top were made by me.

    An idea would be to use the captains of each team.

    not to be picky but the colors look washed out...can you make them more saturated? Also the Pak captain is Misbah not afridi, think you should only put captains on the logo..

    but other than that looks slick. good job.

    I have no ability with graphics. But good luck to those with the talent. I will be making some harsh critiques of the design so be ready for some Simon Cowell style feedback.

    It's a fantastic idea, though I've always been terrible at art! Manual or Paint jobs etc

    Edit: it's ok. I should have read the heading closely :D
