Get Your Banners here!

Banner Requests


Well we're getting some good articles by some awesome people and you know what that means: BANNERS! Banners for your mother, banners for your father, banners every day of the week.

"But where can I get one, JT?" you might ask aloud, not aware that I can't hear you.

Well you can get one here in this thread!

Each banner is custom made to your specifications! What can you expect when you ask for a banner here?


Here's Typical Michael's banner:
Image

And here's OrangeEyebrows' banner:
Image

El Coyote's:
Image

Gash's:
Image

And here are some testimonials:


JamesT's banners didn't kill my entire family -Typical Michael

This banner is not [...] terrible -OrangeEyebrows

Green is my favorite color -phreestyle


I have the summer off so I got nothing but time!


NOTE: While I'll make you a banner on request any time, your articles will be under temporary per-article banners for a few articles as per the editorial guidelines: viewtopic.php?f=50&t=1208

Once you get some under your belt and get a pace going the editors will slap on your beautiful columnist banner for your articles.

Edit: Just to be clear, these banners are for the articles/use on TCS. If you want to use it somewhere else I'd appreciate it if you contact me first, so I can know and beat the lawyers with a stick.

I can work on it too.

Here are some examples:

A banner for aviel:

Banner for Marcuse:

New Banner for TCS:

Image

Poster:

And this bitchin' infographic.

And most of the other design stuff on this site was by me. I'm a design student, so I would enjoy the challenge.

EDIT: Between work, college and other TCS admin-ey stuff, I'm a bit swamped at the moment. So, I'm handing over this thread's reins completely to Sir James here. I'll pop in and out, but I won't be taking any requests.

I already made a banner, but I think it's missing something. It's too dull, it's missing color I think. Do you think you could add a little bit of color? I was thinking something among these lines. Something like an old wanted poster.

Image

I literally have no idea how designing works, so I don't know if my request is too hard or something like that. But I trust your good artistic skills. So, think you can help me? I would be really grateful!

Here's my banner:

Sure thing, Coyote! I'll do that along with Gash's. Expect it by next week!

Thanks a lot James!

EDIT: Do you think you could also do the 500 pix version for the portal page? If I resize the on you give me it would look a bit low quality, so do you think you can also do the small version? If it's not too much to ask of course.

I can do both!

edit:

For future reference, when I do your banner I'll give you both sizes as default.

Thanks! By the way, did you edit my post and took my banner? It mysteriously disappeared...

That was me! Accident. I'll put it back. -HC

That is AWESOME! You rock James! I only have on suggestion, do you think you could make the red on the sides less spotty? I think it would be perfect if it only was like a faint red glow from the sides. I would realy appreciate that. Again, it's wonderful and you rock James!!

EDIT: They're perfect! Thanks!!

I would like to humbly request a banner for my upcoming article.

I made one myself on the same banner making site that Eric used but Notch suggested I shouldn't use one with a tag on it.

Spoiler: show

Really the only non-negotiable thing on that is the title (I also quite like the font it's in). I like that bit because it's another eye joke (that's kinda my theme) otherwise I don't mind as long as it looks interesting.

Alright, I'm on it. I'll PM you for details.

Mmm, bacon.

And my font sense tells me it is "Bleeding Cowboys". It's not terribly legible, I would suggest against it, but you're the client!

Thanks Carp, I was sort of wondering how I'd get a banner sorted out.

Well, if you think I would be better off with a different font I'm certainly open to suggestions. I just like the words not necessarily the way they are presented. There's probably many cool fonts that are more legible than that one so it wouldn't be a problem to change it.

This is the banner I did for me.

I don't like it, so if James or Carp can do something awesome like they have done with the other ones, it would be great.

I actually like it how it is (those bulls are adorable) but I'll take a crack at it!

edit:
I decided to go for just a little change. If you want me to go more drastic just tell me!
