Calling all budding graphic designers.

As much as I like the current banner for Britnerf, there is a need for some more images to promote the site. The current banner simply isn't suitable for promotional reasons.

If any of you guys are a bit tasty with photoshop or whatnot, feel free to make up a banner and post it below. We will then discuss the entries and choose one to take pride of place on the forum and elsewhere.

Someone did have a go a while ago. They were a new user and came up with a pretty decent graphic but they disappeared and never made the suggested alterations. That's artists for you!

I think they're a little lost in the Union Jack at the moment.

Here are two offerings from me. The first one is my favourite but the second one is a bit more fun.

That is epic. I think a bright career in graphic design is in your future Bito.

I was tinkering around and I also came up with this. We can't use it. I'm sure Hasbro would have something to say about using their IP but I thought it looked cool so I'm sharing it.

Righto chaps.

I plan on making another promotional push for the forum soon and I'd like to get some more feedback and/or designs in order to do it. If anyone has any ideas in the back of their minds, now is the time to jot it down. Your design needs to be scalable so several different formats can be made (banners, thumbnails etc.).

Failing that, discussion would help so we can create something that reflects this community.

If you like any of the designs above, have any suggestions or you think you can do better, let us know. We'd really appreciate your feedback.

I might have a promotion idea?

Once we get the new banner sorted maybe we can print it off loads of times on a smaller scale and then just stick them EVERYWHERE. Like on trains, buses, on benches and road crossings, in libraries and where ever. Places with high footfall. I'm thinking like some kind of viral advertising where people see the logo and the website and wonder what that's all about and go and give it a visit. I dunno, might work.

Anyways, it's an idea. Plus does the banner thing have to be photoshop? Cause I suck with that but know a few artist type people who could knock something up?

Whilst I applaud you for helping to promote the forum, I can't condone methods that include an act of vandalism. (Seems odd, but this is what it is.) CeX (the second hand electrical shop) got in some hot water over this a while ago. They were let off because they issued promotional stickers to customers, who in turn stuck them everywhere. CeX were not committing vandalism, they were just handing out free stickers.

There's a lesson to be learned in there somewhere.

Your design could be drawn in crayon on your mothers best linen if that's what you want to do. If the design is good it could easily be turned into something digital. You'll need to move quickly though. I want to get this sorted soon so I can start worrying about other things.

I'm creating a very cheap alternative to a clone army. I plan on overthrowing the republic.
