I designed a banner for a company, and the feed back I got was that it was spammy looking, because of the fake search bar. What do you guys think?
I think its clever, because it is so obviously a banner ad. The slight movement of the cursor may get your attention, and it get's the point across: "this banner is about search engine optimization." Or at least, I thought so.
Above is the Rejected banner in half it's glory (the other half has the business name on it, which of course is confidential).
