PDA

View Full Version : Header/Logo for Main Page



Scotsman
12-03-2007, 02:14 AM
Anyone up for making a header/logo for the main page? Width approx 760, height approx 157, basically approx this image (http://www.nopantsprovided.com/wp-content/themes/gone-fishing-10/images/header.jpg).

It would incorporate the No Pants Provided name in it obviously, perhaps some sort of witty slogan below it(if so, maybe someone here can come up with one so you can put in a default one for filler and save the .PSD). It has to be work safe obviously, any pictures/images you want can go in it - or christ you can even draw or MS Paint it.

Colour scheme for the site will mainly be the same as the forums in the case of the blue that is used in the navbar.

Any other questions let me know.

I'll also put up $25 to the person who makes the best one. You can either take the $25 in Amazon Gift Certificate format, over a poker room, or be a nice person and have it donated to a charity(of your choosing) instead.

I'd like to get the main page design finalized this week, so if you could do it by then that'd be fantastic.

Also anyone that is interested can create a new header for the forums. Approx 67 in height, 450 in width although can probs go as wide as 550.

dawinr - I think that is just a tad too NWS - maybe others will disagree - but we have to be very careful because the main page is going to attract new visitors to the site and hopefully the forums, so we don't want them browsing from work, finding the site then immediately having to close it because of borderline pictures.

WT - something about that colour scheme I really like, with the white on top, black spacer, then the blue below.

It was the IL scheme, and the old Scotsmanality colors. I guess in my head if we had a flag that's what it would look like. And that's mostly what I was doing with the logo. The guy in his underwear and text was all just dressing.

Taff

Why do people keep putting a guy in his pants when clearly we dont provide pants. Where has the guy got these pants from if we didnt provide them?

underwear=pants in GB/NI?

Looks like it says "gaying the best for last"

And why are we saving, and what are we saving? Like the pants? I don't get it.

WT

It's an in joke from Scotsmanality, the phrase is a place holder more than anything. I'm not good with tag lines.

Taff
12-03-2007, 04:44 AM
See the stop sign thing is the kind of thing I was thinking of.


I didnt think of the underwear=pants thing. Ive always assumed it wasnt provided and posted naked from the waist down :(

You have a font in mind? I'm open to suggestions.

Taff
12-03-2007, 04:58 AM
Not really, I just think that one looks too kiddy.

Also for tag lines, how about changing it every month to one of the search hits? So this month could be "metric fuckton"

WT
12-03-2007, 05:03 AM
That's a pretty brilliant idea, actually.

Taff
12-03-2007, 05:05 AM
Maybe "A Metric Fuckton of Lols" or something gay like that to fit the search into a sentance.

WT

Those pants could use some work as well. They look like shorts. Or pants for midgets. Also, cargo pants are for wankers.

What was the font YRD came up with for the IL logo?

WT
12-03-2007, 05:37 AM
http://i152.photobucket.com/albums/s186/KeyguardActive/crap.jpg
That's the font he was using, if I remember correctly. I downloaded it at the time, but I've downloaded a metric fuckton of fonts, so it's hard to say.

If it's not, I'll try again after I've had some sleep.

Taff

I dunno, there seems to be something innately childish about your designs WT, thats not a knock, I love KA, but it doesnt seem to fit a site like this.

Hey, no offense taken. I have a very specific mentality when it comes to headers and logos and it's not for everyone. Just thought I'd give it a shot.

Dang, I wish I had my old computer set up so I can open old photoshop. All I have right now is my laptop.

If we have some time with this, I can try to whip something up too, but not until the end of the week.

And Taff, the font is on my old comp. Unless you wanna browse old-IL and see if it's mentioned in a thread there.

Those are clearly shorts, not pants.

WT
12-03-2007, 07:54 PM
They're pants alright. I stretched them out wide so they would show up better. They just belong on a short fat guy. Like Grandpa Harmon.

WT, now THOSE look like pants- although maybe you should rotate the slash to the left a few degrees to clearly show where the hemline starts...lest they be confused for big shorts.

Guapo - the main page design is now pretty much done. The logo size has been changed to 698x170. I saw some people suggesting a different font - now you know what it's going to be like, you want to give it a try?

Also - anyone able to make an image for the bible? Real easy one - you can see where it will go if you visit the bible (http://www.nopantsprovided.com/wiki/index.php5?title=Main_Page) - in the top left of the page.
