This week I designed the banner for 15 minutes of History. The Christopher Rose is highly interested in Harry Ransom Center’s black and white website header, so but want the banner to have lighter images than the ones on Harry Ransom Center’s website. I lowered the contrast of the images by applying a gray overlay, and made the background/borders a gradient so it doesn’t look as harsh. I made a black and white version but it doesn’t look as interesting, so I made two colored versions as well with UT secondary colors as squares and rectangles.
Plain black and white with different transparencies
