z929669 Posted February 12, 2013 Share Posted February 12, 2013 Call for Graphic Artists: Questions or comments? Post here!New STEP Banner and logo designWe are accepting proposals for a new STEP-brand design to serve in the coming age. The STEP team has had several ideas and implementations (e.g., see the following ... yes, I drew it myself :P); however, we think that there are likely talented individuals in the community with fresh ideas and superior graphic artistry. We will accept submissions as attachments on this thread through April 30th, and we will pick a winner by May 10th. The winner will be featured on the Nexus site and permanently acknowledged in the STEP Guide credits ... not to mention the iconic status inherently granted to the creator of the STEP brand. GuidelinesWe require a banner that clearly, yet creatively identifies STEP as well as an iconic logo for wider usage. Key criteria are:Simple design (especially for the logo)Good scaling from small to large formats without appreciable loss of meaning or qualityBanner dimensions should be between a ratio of 1:4 and 1:5Logo dimensions should be close to 1:1 (but this is a relaxed requirement)Use any colors, but it should look good in contrast to STEP Guide, Forums and Nexus.Submission FormatPNG format only for initial submission (not the source files ... yet)Package into a 7z archiveCreate a post with the text "SUBMISSION" and attach the file to your postOnce the winner is chosen, he/she will need to supply us with Photoshop or Gimp source files via DropBox or email (depending on size).New Forum Icons We are also accepting suggestions and proposals for a new forum icon set.Â The previous icons were recently replaced, but we know they can be much better.Â As above, we'd like a simple design that matches the forum skin.Â Please do not post anything but submissions to this thread Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
