The only way you can have an established online identity is by having your very own website. Therefore, you invest and hire web developers and graphic designers for the job. However, a creative web design is not always a big factor in your online identity.

Tim Pratt says:

there a 2 things you did in illy that i've got know how to do……

first the settings in livetrace? i can't for the life of me get a great trace like that.

second, when working with the squares on top of the banner (you called them hooks, where they hang from the horizontal pole) how did you select those objects and they automatically spaced themselves apart?
