This goes without saying, but you should base the color of your layout on the colors of your favorite team. For instance, if you’re a Steelers fan, you’ll want to rock the gold and black. Cowboys fan? Then you’re looking to deck out your pages in blue and silver, of course! Using the colors as prominent features such as one color for the background, and the secondary color for your text, frame, and special elements is a great way to make a high impact design.
Mascots & Logos
Don’t forget to include your team mascot or logo within your design. If you’re having a hard time locating a picture of it, check out your teams website, which often has a section dedicated to freebies such as mascots and logos for web and personal use! Doing an image search in a popular search engine like Google is likely to yield great results. Still unsatisfied?
