file So, I've been at it again... [Yet another background and layout thread]

Someone mentioned that they wanted to see what a centered portrait looked like. I also took the liberty to update the Assamite (Banu Haqim?) background to include a sort of callback to the original design with an Arabian style lattice pattern (I've always thought it weird that Assamites were the only one who had their clan icon integrated into their actual background).

Followers of Set (The Ministry?)


Banu Haqim


Cao Nguyen looks okay, but Rebekah looks off balance to me. Compare to these:




for whatever reason these just feel more harmonious than the centered portraits. Additionally, in the previous iteration the portraits felt out of proportion to me, and i've gone back to the original proportions.

If you switch to the new clan names, I suspect you'd want to use the new, simplified or updated icons to match.

I was going to say that the centered does look teeny bit better but forces the disciplines to horizontal positioning (which I'm not sure if I like better than the vertical or not. Kinda like it, kinda not.)

When vertical they are kinda more distinct as they are not superimposed on anything else than the card background. While horizontal they also go on top of the picture and I'm not totally sure how well that will always work.

Also horizontal might cause some spatial problems with some fatties with a giganormous discipline threads.

I personally prefer vertical positioning for the discipline icons. They are more distinctive when not overlapping with anything else, and also not being covered by blood counters when not in center of the card.

With the exception of the horizontal disciple icons, these last images look really, really good.

I think centered with vertical icons would worki best. Horizontal just look meh.
