I need a 1000w x 200h to be the main banner at http://siddhayatan.org/div (temp url). Two musts: needs to include the founder's picture and our spiritual retreat name: Siddhayatan, with a sub line of: nonviolence. awakening. transformation. - everything else is up to you.
Seeking a design to capture peace, enlightenment, nature, happiness, and leadership. I like simple (zennish), yet bold and powerful. It should easily blend with the white background of the website (see above link). Your banner will replace the current temporary banner.
If you plan to use a lot of graphics, the site is more yoga/meditation based. Some symbols if they must be included are the Hindu Aum and Jain Aum: http://www.jainpushp.org/images/OM.gif
You can change the present logo text to incorporate the feel of your work. Please see url first to get an idea of the websites colors - main is white, with hints of a type of pastel blue, olive green, and red.
