2016 Banner Competition

Post by greeneyed » October 23, 2015, 11:29 pm

It's been suggested it is time for a new site banner... It had been two years with a great banner!

But we are going to open it up to a new banner comp!

We are NOT looking to change the site logo. All entries MUST use the existing site logo. Hi resolution version:

Image

Banners must be 740x120 pixels in dimension.

Banners must include the words "#1 Canberra Raiders supporters site" or "No 1 Canberra Raiders supporters site" and "thegh.com.au".

Here is my first shot at design. I'm sure someone can do better (although it is pretty damn good)! People can feel free to use this background image, as we are using that on Facebook and Twitter.

Image

Image

Images used should not be subject to copyright.

Winner gets their design on the site banner, plus a $200 merchandise voucher.

Put your entries up here!

Let the entries flow! All decisions on the banner subject to the approval of the Administration.

I like it CRR but one issue is including current players... It dates the banner quickly at times. In fact far too quickly sometimes!

Also, I think we would prefer not to have a Raiders logo... The site is independent...

My two buddies who are the guys on the left ran into her on a bus on the way to that game. She then sat with us at the game all night. She absolutely gave it to Toddy at the fence there

Cool story bro..... One question though, is one of your buddies named Toddy? Cause that'd open up a whole new tale :hmmm

something to think about GE and co, I understand having players in it can date it but I like how it shows we are connected with the players/support them etc

so if we don't have the players in it, clever people need to show the connection some how ;)

We can always have players who are at least signed for a few years.

We tend to change the banner after that time anyway.

That's what we did last time. It was the curse of the banner. They all walked or were sacked.

I still think you should use the banner in my signature. It DOES fulfil all the requirements, after all.

It does have the design sensibility of the banner we did for The Hooter.

I actually like Schifty's. I also subscribe to 'less is more'.
So, Schifty, perhaps change it to '#1 theGH.com.au' - still probably non-compliant.

Could you put this 'ghosted' Raiders logo with a 'ghosted' #1 supporters site? (surely with the logo the 'Canberra Raiders' part is implied?)
