PostSubject: New Banner Contest!   Thu Jan 13, 2011 10:06 pm

Alright, this is a contest for a new clan banner. Yes, you heard that right, a new clan banner.


How long have we had our current banner? Since the clan was reformed, about a year and a half ago. I'm looking for a new banner to complement our current one, something we can use out in public that's more eye-catching and vibrant. Winner of this contest could find their design potentially used by the whole clan. The theme is "Impossibly Blue". Here are the requirements and suggestions.




- Has to use our current eye, preferably with no altercations to it. Unless it looks better elsewhere, make it on the left-hand side of the banner.
- Has to come in a signature-sized version at 500x100 pixels and a full-sized version at 800x160 pixels.
- Font color for name has to be white, unless you can make words that look better and are just as bright.
- Has to have a black background.
- A creative blue border of some sort is highly suggested, so the black doesn't cut in sheer against whatever color base the banner is being posted on. For example, a blue border would help to make the banner stand out as a siggie on the AEF.


BONUS!

If you have the time, I'm looking for a megasized image with 1000 pixel width and any height up to 1000 pixels to serve as our cover image for both our wiki and the AEF. Our current image, while good, is no longer competitive with some other images out there. Here's what one image that stood out to me looks like.




Anyone who can make an image fitting the above image sizes, with a black background and white letters, not necessarily having to use our eye, will also score points in this contest.

Have fun, and good luck!

I'll do my best on both challenges, and I'll make a few other surprises, all will match the buttons, too.

...and rank symbols, I hate how yours never look symmetrical.

I think it should be someone neutral, a bit of good, a bit of evil, and even a touch of chaos thrown in. Golbez. And not just cuz he's my new favorite character in Dissidia. He looks intimidating, he's very powerful, but he's not pure evil. He has both a good side and a bad side.

That said, I'm fine with anyone, as long as it isn't a pokemon character, digimon character, yugioh character, DBZ character(badass, but just doesnt fit), or anything else childish.

Hmmm...a mascot doesn't necessarily have to be a person, does it? Talked to a friend of mine at school, he might be coming onto the forums as "Uziroth" if I can ever convince him to join. He suggested a card, with an eye in the middle and a faded "R" in the background, same things in the top left corner and bottom right corner, making it kind of like a playing card. Maybe something crazy happening to it.

But personally, if we were to go for an actual human symbol to represent Requiem, I'd suggest Haseo from .hack//G.U. Just because he fits our image pretty well. Not too many people would recognize him, which would allay concerns over people claiming we're stealing from elsewhere...especially if we use the right image. Here's an example.

Eh, no worries. I'll hold this contest until we get a good variety of different things to choose from.

Which Job Class of Haseo do you want?
The Base,Second,Third or even the Xth Form? X3
