[EAS] Banner design contest
« on: April 25, 2007, 09:29:55 AM »
Although I am no longer really content with it, it is currently out of the question to redesign the whole site. However, as a start, I intend to replace the bland old banners, and I will be grateful for the help of talented graphics designers.

1. The banners should be designed to replace the already existing EAS banners:
http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/contact.htm#banners
You may pick single sizes you like to redesign, or take on the whole set. I may decide to add additional sizes if you deem them useful.

2. The banners must include the EAS star logo and the letters "Ex Astris Scientia" or "EAS" in some fashion. Feel free to switch to a new font, while the colors of the logo should remain unchanged.
Logo template: http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/temp/easlogo-template.tif

3. Please make sure that you can provide an uncompressed file type.

What can you win? - Well, just kudos. You will be given due credit at EAS.

The prospective closing date will be May 31. The decision will be made in a vote at the SCN. I reserve the right to pre-select banner designs.

You can post your banners as inline images in this thread. If you are not an SCN member, then please go to http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/contact.htm where you find an e-mail link above the submission form.

Good luck!

Shouldn't this be in Artwork + Design? More people would see it there, I'd think... :)

True. More people are likely to look there. But I would like to keep this separate.

Are you open to any minor logo changes/updates? My thoughts would keep it as the Starfleet emblem on a starburst yellow background, just slightly different.

If not, I understand, and will still give a go at a new banner.

Well, I'd say the basic design should remain recognizable.

Thanks, Pleiades!

I may extend the deadline a little bit, and I will announce the winner(s) in this thread in the course of this week.

Give me some time Bernd, I jsut found this thread. If you get me some basic material I might make something out of it...
*Doorbell Sound*

 "Hi, I am Elder 14 of 37 and this is my traveling companion Sister 29 of 128. We represent the Borg..."
"Oh Roddenbery, you guys again? Look, it's 8 in the morning and I don't have time for you OK? I told you last week..."
"But... Assimilation... Holopamflet!"
"Yeah right, you can leave it here but I'll throw it on the rest of the bunch I got from your other 'brothers' and 'sisters'. Now scram before I call the 8472 Squad!"
