Thread: Banner Design Challenge #1

  1. #1
    Ok guys and gals, we have enough designers here so let's all have a go at producing a banner for the TCB-world chain of websites and forum.

    Post your attempts in this thread which will remain on top of the forum.

    Unchained has already had a go so I'm sure hes gonna post his example here.

    If I know Unchained its not gonna be his only attempt so you can have as many goes as you like on this one.

    No prizes as such, asside from the glory of possibly having your banner design displayed on the world wide web

    Try and keep the entries, well, er , banner size as well as the file size fairly quick loading. Make it either a static banner, animated or if you really want to show off have a go at making one in Flash

    Most of all, have fun with it !

    This sounds very exciting!!! I think I will have a go at it. But first: for what, exactly, will it be used? And do you have size you prefer the banner to be of?
    There's so much world to see

    Hi Little Sister.

    I guess the banner doesn't really wan't to be any bigger than say 100 pix High x 450 pix wide, or we can all use roughly the dimensions Unchained has specified.

    I should point out I won't be choosing winners or anything, if anybody should do that it it should be Albert (as the TCB World is of course his domain name)

    The use of the banner would be for people to use on their own websites to link to TCB world.

    Personally, I would say there could be more than one banner offered for that purpose. Some websites afterall offer a choice of banners for people to use as a link.

    Anyway, if nothing else it should hopefully get a good thread going - and a variety of designs.

    Perhaps Albert can specify if there are any specifics he would like the banner to adhere to.

    I think there shut be only one TCB-BANNER in the end Spinout , this way we get a more recognisable trademark and website. If there are more tottaly different version you won’t have that.
    'HEY.........I just work here'

    Well Unchained, I won't argue with that

    Like I say, it's not for me to set the rules or choose the winners.

    I noticed before design websites run little design contests so maybe we could have some design contest as a regular feature on TCB World - if enough people would be interested.

    Unchained and Patrick,

    Thanks for the comments about my attempts at the TCB-World banner, but really everybodys efforts so far have been super, and there is still plenty of time for everyone to submit more entries.

    I needed a banner quickly for this messageboard and decided to go for the one that's currently used

    Thank you all very much for your time and effort. When the new site is released I will be happy to use the various banners.

    @spinout-designs: am I allowed to use that tcb-world.com logo for other purposes? I already had designed a website logo, but your is so much better. Please? :worthy:

    Hi Albert, no problems if you want to use the logo for the website - thats great infact, I'm glad you like it. If you want a photoshop file of just the logo with a transparent background or whattever let me know.

    I would like to checkout the logo you came up with sometime.


    Unchained - yeah man I already noticed you had used my banner on your links

    I will be updating my website sometime and adding peoples banners to it then.
