Contest: Design a UM Ad Graphic

157 posts in this topic

This is an idea that Blue-Scorpion helped me come up with earlier today, what i'm looking for are replacement site ad graphics that other web sites can use to link back to Unexplained Mysteries. The current ones are rather old and I could definately use some new ones.

Here are the current ones to give you an idea of what i'm looking for:

120x30 pixels

user posted image

120x60

user posted image

You can try your hand at either one or the other or both. You can also enter as many different designs as you like. Don't do animated GIFs, as most sites won't be too happy using them.

The best ones will be used on Unexplained Mysteries as the official advert graphics that other site's use to link to us with.

Good luck, and thanks in advance to everyone who gives this a try thumbsup.gif

Another Question, what's the maximum size for the advertisement. Just in case someone doesn't give us a full page worth of advertisement. laugh.giftongue.gif

Oh, and another problem. What about copyrighted images? Some of us might use images from other websites and use it for the advertisement. What do we do?

The size of the advert has to be 120x30 or 120x60, as those are the standard sizes for small 'button' advert graphics. You can also try a 468x60 banner advert as well.

As far as using images from other sites, it should be ok as long as the images are not copyrighted to someone, general paranormal clipart and images such as those in the gallery will usualy be all right to use for this.

I'm not having much luck at resizing it.

The best way to do it is to design the image with the correct size in mind to begin with, rather than making a larger one and trying to shrink it afterwards.

For some reason I was thinking about a banner the whole time, so that's why it's that size, lol. I should pay more attention next time. tongue.gif

I made this out of my first attempt, so much for "my only shot at it". wink2.gif It is quite dark, hard to read perhaps. dontgetit.gif

Doomgirl the first and third ones of yours are really awesome.... I really liked the first one in particular... The movement draws your eyes to it, which is the point of advertising, now isn't it???

You guys are all so talented.. I cannot even resize pics to post them... sad.gif
