Despite the fact that I used to be cartoonist, my graphic design skills are…well, limited. And while I’m a fast coder, it takes me hours to create even the simplest images – the banners and buttons I made for TopStyle felt like they took more time to create than TopStyle itsef.
Well, I now find myself needing banners for FeedDemon, and I’m trying desperately to avoid creating them myself. So, here’s a chance for graphic designers to show off their talent and win a copy of both FeedDemon and TopStyle in the process. Here’s what I need:
Two 468×60 FeedDemon ad banners
One 135×100 FeedDemon ad banner
One 120×60 FeedDemon ad banner
All images should be 256 color GIFs, and while animation is fine it shouldn’t be overbearing. For branding purposes, each image should use some variation of the FeedDemon logo, which appears at the right of this entry. The contest starts now and ends January 31, 2004.
Just send your creations to me at info at bradsoft.com. The four winning designs will be showcased here soon after the contest ends.
Update: I’ve had several people email me asking for the font used in the logo. The name of the font is “Crillee It BT,” but I should clarify that you can use any font you like. I really just want the hand and “flameball” in the banners.
