New Banner for Stonetek ! NEW DEADLINE !!
 
1 Attachment(s)
All - sorry to do this, but I am extending the deadline by two days, since my brain is still not screwed on all the way from being in the hospital for so long - let's end this in two more days - Deadline for submissions is midnight on Friday the 13th of November, 2009 CST. Winners will be announced by 9pm CST on the 14th - I was WAY out of the loop for too long last week / this week so I am the one to blame for the extended timeline, sorry.




This is an appeal to anyone even remotely gifted artistically - I need a new banner ! Animated would be cool - I do NOT want a "rip off" banner...you know, someone elses' copyrighted pictures, etc - nothing obscene, not too huge (about same size as my current one at StoneTek Electronics ) and obviously with a "lasery" theme :) Dunno what I could offer to the one I pick - but I am certain I could come up with something ! So - please post suggestions here, if you would - my current banner REALLY needs updating ! Thanks in advance to any who try to help out, flash, gif, jpg, whatever - just cool looking ! Color does not matter - if it clashes with my existing background colors on my site, I'll have to change them :) I'll update this post with whatever prize I come up with..

(This post is the direct result of me having seen the CNI competition thread - there were some damned nice pieces of art in there !)

Okay, I will accept entries until November 11th, at midnight CST. On November 12th, I will announce the winner(s) <---WILL be more than one !

Top prize will be : $100.00 gift certificate for my shop, plus a Kryton Groove KIT (includes all the little widgets and whatnot it comes with....groove driver parts, little rubber dealios, etc) with your choice of PHR sled, or a Sony SLD1239JL-54, plus a RCKSTR test load kit

Second prize will be determined

Other prizes to be determined ! I think (reserve the right to select minimum of two banners, possibly three)

Here's my current, soon to be replaced, banner :

Cash prizes are good...

In the words of jayrob, "SCHWEET!"
I need to enter now. :/

Any general ideas/outline for the layout/content?
Anything would help.

I guess it's up to our imagination.

Check the site, green banner across the top, so maybe make them transparent! ;]

And partially quoting o0ICE0o :

EXCELLENT question (regarding colors/layout)

Colors do not matter, if it clashes with my existing colors, and I like the new ones, the old goes away ! As far as layout is concerned - I am 100% artistically inept...if I ever WAS "ept" it went away somewhere, so now I am inept, whatever ! Be creative, make it look awesome - animation is cool, but NOT required. Surprise me (nicely, dangit !).

Wow nice first place prizes Greg!

I know not to even try after seeing some of the nice banners in the CNI contest...

But just saying glad to see this thread from you! :)

Re: New Banner for Stonetek !
 
Just as curiosity (cause my "artistic skill" is probably worse than your one :p) ..... do you want to "keep a continuity" from your old banner (style, title, same words, anything), or is not important if the banner is totally different ?

Also, general background color ? ..... black ? ..... (cause if you want it animated, the bg need to be set anticipately, for not made a mess with gif animations)

Those are some very cool prizes! I remember T_J mentioning that he preferred working for cash prices only.. and him and Niko sure do nice graphics work :) I will just give them a quick PM to make sure they see this..

Thanks to Jaseth I came to see this thread, I'll enter, of course!

I do have the same questions the members have here: What style are you aiming to? Do you want pictures of your products or just a cool isologotype?

For the CNI contest I made two banners, one animated and one static. The static was not chosen, if you like it I can redesign it to fit your needs and turn it into a StoneTek banner.

Also, what size? Full leaderboard?
