Nice little banner - the colour and simple design allow it not to intrude on your browser space much. This caught my eye and reminded me of summer. The question hung a while which put me off at first. I was about to ignore it and continue to look around the site away from the banner, but I decided to give it a second chance because of it pretty design. The question did at first puzzle me, "Control the Beach..." which kept me waiting and then the follow up "...First control your body" still perplexed me slightly. I guessed it was for some sort of fitness or dietry site. It's slight ambiguity made me almost click on it, but just before I did, i remembered it was still just an advert, and as with most adverts, the sites which they link to don't do justice for your time (well processing time). So, although it's a clever little eye-catching and thought holding picture, It doesn't fool everyone. Whoever designed the advert did do a good job.
Like alot of the other ads on this site I thought that this add was lacking in pandas and had was very dull. I was upset to the point of suicide when I first saw it, but eventually my girlfriend cheered me up with some south american singing. It's really that dull! Why can they use flash 5? It better quicker and is a lot more better than gifs. It's just my thoughts, it wouldn't make me click oin it Cheers Kings Bye Bye
This banner is very bland and not extremely eye catching. It needs an injection of colour to want to go further. There has not been much thought gone into creating an interesting format.I think it would be more interestin if a better combination of colour and graphics was used so that when viewing this banner for the first time it will make the viewer want to know more about the site. The concept is fairly good but should be made more interesting.I would suggest the background of just one colour could be changed to multicolour on a steady changing sequence, this will catch the eye. Also I think the black stick man running does not convey much at all, a bigger impact could be achieved with the use of an actual person running if running theme must be kept. Perhaps the running person could change from man to woman, maybe in the form of a baton chaneover in a relay race. There might be greater thought done on the presentation of lettering ie three dimension effect. All in all I think a major overhaul is required.
I thought banners were ment to be eye catching. Poorly selected font and colours. With a name like Sunsites they could have done so much better. Its not immediatley obvious what they are advertising in other words you have to read the whole advert before you know what they are all about. A better use of strong, contrasting colours would catch the potential customers eye much better than the dull colours they have selected. Believe me, my son could draw something more pleasing to the eye than this.
