New Banners

Recommended Posts

I have visited a lot of websites that had a set of randomized banners, and I thought, why not Nom too? So I checked into things and tossed together a few to get us started, and here we are.

So does the idea seem nice? I think so, at least so far. I hope to expand the amount too.

 

If any of you guys feel like making some yourselves, go ahead and post 'em here and if I like them, they'll go up, but first some guidelines.

 

  • Images must be exactly 100 pixels tall. Width is variable, but no larger than 650. Try to aim for 550.
  • Text can be composed any way you like, but the name "Nom Nom Nom" must be prominent in the image.
  • Transparency is preferred, as these banners are displayed on 4 different skins.
  • Use PNG for static images, and GIF for animated images.
  • Keep the file size under 400kB

Attached is the PSD base for the original logo, with everything chopped up into layers, as you'd expect from a PSD. The bottom layer is a backdrop of the forum's default background color for Thoreau-Dark, the primary skin. Use this to see how things look, but do not leave it visible when exporting your banner. You aren't limited to this layout either, if you have something else in mind, feel free to swap it up.

 

The typefaces used here are TF2 Build and TF2 Professor

But, but...

 

Or does it not count because it doesn't say the welcome to nom message?

 

Oh fuck... since I just check the later posts I didn't expect an edit o.o

IT IS BEAUTIFUL!

Did anyone else read the title as "New Bananers".

Like a billion hours in MS paint.

 

That is incredibly awesome, but what are the chances you could get the blue to fade off into transparency as it reaches the right side of the image so we can use it?

Did a few before hitting the hay tonight. I'll probably whip up some more tomorrow.

I'll give it a shot.

Bah, My Photoshop-fu is rustier then I thought. Couldn't transparent it for the life of me. The best I got was this fakey fade.

 

 

Here's the file if anyone wants to mess with it.

Added most of 'em, though I fixed up the SPAAACE one with the transparency only on the right side, and didn't add Schmoofy's mantits due to a number of reasons.
