TMX Header contest 201310:43 PM 05-Feb-13 : Quote : Report : #
Beyond Help!



Hey folks,
TMNF-X as well as United will be getting a great new site update soon, thanks to Joanna who has been working hard on a site update!

As the website will get a wider layout, we'll need some new header/banner that fits the new dimensions! We've had the current one by Baston for over 2 years now and as beautiful and timeless as it is, it's time for something new, don't you think?

So here is your chance to contribute to our new, fresh design!

The deadline is currently set to March 15 29th, 2013.
We reserve the right to extend the deadline if we do not receive enough submissions by then.

_______
» RULES
• You can submit up to 3 screens that will count for the rating
• The dimensions must be 900x96
• Post them here in PNG-Format
• The TMX logo must be clearly visible and placed in about the same size and position as now

___________________
» SOME SUGGESTIONS
Do not overdo external sources, we don't need a space station nor the Eiffel Tower or something barely resembling trackmania as a banner, Trackmania should be clearly visible. Avoid blockmixing sections and custom carmodels/3D skins, work with the default national skins.

Do yourself a favor and use PSD files or a different format so you can alter your submissions later on. Until the deadline, you can post and change your submissions as often as you want, but since we lock the topic once the deadline is reached, better make sure you mark the ones you want to submit for voting, else we will pick the first three banners you posted here.

The logo should stand out of the background, you can achieve this by blurring the background or adding a glow/shadow to the logo. The logo itself should not be altered though! Here's the TMX logo for use in your banner.
To get things started, here's a PSD-Template made by eyebo.

Feel free to ask here, we will try to help if you are uncertain about the rules.

__________
» JUDGING
This will probably be public voting, more about that at a later time.

________
» PRIZES
8000 coppers, 20 donator days, , guarantee to have your banner on the site and a showcase**
4000 coppers, 10 donator days
2000 coppers, 5 donator days

** You may choose a track to be showcased on the front page of TMNF-X. It can be a self-made creation or the work of someone else (maximum 10 awards).


We're looking forward to your submissions
If you got United, why not check out their competition as well.


Have fun!

Crew

I had fun playing with the symbols shown in the current header....so that's my first version. I would very much appreciate some feedback to know if there is anything to improve on :-)

yeah, I'm probably gonna edit that white glow a bit. Just need to make the car stand out a bit, otherwise the perspective is too weird.
I don't think you can get those icons anywhere as a file, you will have to take a pic of the editor menu and cut them out....

Or just recreate them in photoshop/illustrator.

Ok, I've tried something. I'm not so sure about the image, but those signs I'm somehow happy with. they kind of stands for "Race, explore, create". And that three points are a really big part of TMX. So, I've a tiny little thought behind it.

The TMX logo is too far over to the right. There is a template in the original post if you need help with placement

I think you can enlarge the icons and reduce the blur

I updated my header now. Is the 'exchange' idea on the right with the use of the arrows clear enough?

Great one HawkGer, I like the ideas but it lacks contrast and some vibrance overall, concerning the whole part on the right of the logo. Btw, definitely remove the hammer
And I like yours a lot, Elvestad!
