Banners for ISML 2013

Post by Crisu » Tue Dec 18, 2012 6:41 am

We have a rotating banner system at the top of the ISML pages. You can help contribute to it!
  • Dimensions are 988x140 pixels.
  • Must have the phrase "International Saimoe League 2013" on it.
  • Must have the official ISML logo.
  • Do not show a character's eyes, if any are present.
  • Keep these relatively abstract, neutral, and anonymous. Using pretty backgrounds is encouraged.
  • No prominent quotes. A design with random words and phrases as part of the background should be fine.
  • Keep all text and logos at least 10px away from each corner. They will be rounded off when displayed on the website.
http://archive.internationalsaimoe.com/ ... go2013.psd

The fonts used in the PSD are "Segoe Print" and "Brush Script Std."
http://archive.internationalsaimoe.com/ ... egoepr.ttf
http://archive.internationalsaimoe.com/ ... goeprb.ttf
http://archive.internationalsaimoe.com/ ... iptStd.otf

Not every submission will be accepted, but all contributors should do their very best! ^_^
Deadline is February 1, 2013.

Aside from banners, you can also submit buttons and mini-banners for blogs or other social networking sites. Example:

Looks like fun! (Actually, a few months ago I made a whole bunch of potential bases for next year that got lost when my laptop died... sigh.)

Here's my first attempt and I'll probably try to do more when I have time!

I'm not feeling too inspired at the moment, but I tried to throw something together. I think I'm gonna fix it when I can!

Ooh, your quotes are cool :3 If anything for the 2nd banner, I might suggest trying a different font for the quote and maybe a bit smaller (I don't really know where the best place to place it would be though). Your 4th banner is cool too :p

EDIT: I'm not happy with the fourth one. I'll try to edit it later.
Ooh, I like the slight glow in text in the first and last banner. The second banner's picture is a little blurry imo, but the kimono is very pretty :3 And I really like your third banner--it has a sort of comfy feeling even though it seems freezing x3x3 but maybe try to make the "2013" a bit darker somehow? I dunno o-o

Uwahhh~ your PS skills are so cool kuki :3 I like the second one because of the glowy feeling from the text in contrast to the darker background xp

Oh yay, I can guess the characters! I think the third banner is a little bland, since all you can see is their legs, and there is a blank area on the right of the text. I like your 5th banner though! It's pretty :]

useless.just not so worthy opinion from photoshop noobShow
@RedDawningSky pastel colors always looks cute~

@miyaku Personally I really like your first banner. Just in case you didn't know that we can change the logo color by changing the hue,saturation,lightness

@Hikari-chan Okay that was so 'UNINSPIRED'

@Jerro 1st part Banner 3,4,5 I love the pictures you are using and they looks really cute. For Banner 2, honestly quotes took loads of space. Maybe you can use italic and smaller size fonts for quotes.Use effects such as glow or shadow. ISML logo maybe can put at different place .

2nd part Banner 1 OMG Rikka <3<3 ,2,3.Loking good especially Banner 2 love it. . Banner 4 looks a lil bit scary and bloody not sure lol

@Clovie Image used for Banner 2 too blurry.Banner 1,3,5 I love them.Glowing effects are amazing. I actually also like the 4th banner,but we can see the eyes a bit too much.

@nteoez Yeah!we know almost all the characters even by just looking at the shoes qx . Banner 3,5,6,7 will looks more awesome if a little effects added to the text. Like how you did for Banner 2.
Shiran you made some,no?Let us see your kawaii banners ~

@shira
Thank you :3 Didn't know what to do with that picture so I tried to create a fluffy pink atmosphere there xD

@kuki
Didn't know how to change the color of the logo there. Thanks a lot ><.

Yeah, I'm going to remake that second banner :p
But does Banner 4 (second part) really look bloody, cause the full picture looks actually pretty peaceful. (Just Komachi Onozuka (Touhou) standing around in the plains near the Sanzu river, which usually has bloodred clouds... so maybe it looks a bit bloody because of that :p)
Nyank you, Kuki-junior!~
And keep up the good work everyone!

*Edit: Updated the second banner in the first post~

Fairy Tale and Angel Beats for the first two. Almost thought the first was One Piece until I realized the tattoo was on the guy's arm and not the girl's
Really like those, the group shot gives it a nice look.

Think I should recognise the last two, but I don't right now.
Like the works though :)
