  • Giving design the back door

    Well I'm quite fed up with design, so I've decided to borrow a photograph and incorporate it into the web site and get rid of the logo I meticulously crafted. So here it is: the NEW Cardiff Buddhist Centre website

    Comments please...

    I borrowed a nice motorcycle once to impress the girls, but it had to go back. It wasn't really mine, I was just pretending.

        What do you mean by "borrow"?

          The photo is of the painting in the CBC Shrine Room no. 2. I didn't take it, and I didn't paint it.

              I asked Norman Tang, the photographer if I could use one of his photos, so yeah I secured the rights to use it.

                The old design was so much classier and appealing.
                The "new" design looks like less thought was put into it.

                    This may be personal preference, but I like the one on the left of the ones you've just posted. It just looks.. neater to my eye. I like neither of the first ones you've posted an exceptional amount; they just don't look very appealing to me. Quite dull and uninviting colours.

                      Which of the two you didn't find appealing did you like the most?

                        Fighting fire-breathing dragons don't really conjure up peaceful meditation.

                          Maybe the dragons will burn all the noisy ones and all that is left is peace and quiet?

                            But that particular dragon is the national symbol of Wales, isn't it?

                              Yes it's the Welsh Dragon which features on the national flag.

                                Understood. I shall choke down my pride and stick with the filled version of the corner pip. Please hold as I cry in the corner.

                                Ok, all done. Thanks for the compliments. The king is, indeed,...

                                The solid pip, while perhaps a (minor) downgrade artistically, is a substantive improvement to the piece's function as a playing card. Personally, I think this queen is a gorgeous piece of work, and my...

                                I don't see it, either. But I'm not sure I want to, lol.
