Website Header design contest - [CLOSED-No suitable entries]





MrBaseball34
I am almost finished with a redsign of my website and need a header
graphic. The site is tableless CSS that dynamically expands/contracts
based on the size of the browser.

Although I don't have a lot, all my FriH$ will go to the best submission.

Contest ends January 31, 2006.

Here is the URL for the redsigned site:
http://www.austinmetrobaseball.com/2005_redesign/

Here is the Illustrator file for the Header.
(Note that it MUST also contain the smaller MSBL/MABL logo)
http://www.austinmetrobaseball.com/2005_redesign/ambl.ai


In order to be scalable, submissions can only be in Illustrator or EPS
format.

I'm on it, but:

Resizing images dynamically makes for some pretty nasty visuals... Shocked

You might want to concider setting the size of at least the title/header graphic to a constant, or whatever i do will look appauling once on your page...

EDIT: GIMP wouldnt open the.ai file (some wierd errors) so im re-drawing the logo thingy...

I was just wondering:

couldnt i perhaps send it as a .png instead...im having some trouble with creating an *.eps that adobe reader will read?

Here are two *.png anyway...

They arent amazing but with the black border on your page they should hopefully look pretty decent...

You must include the main logo as well as the MSBL/MABL logo in the header.

I've seen some really cool effects with "split" images that resize with the
content. I will see if I can find the one I'm thinking about that I liked...

I will post an eps file later tonight.

I'm on it. Making one in flash... but will convert it to .jpg and .png.
madsencarl
Ok - the first one is in .jpg format and the second is in .png format. If you don't like the font and want to change it, I'll easily change it. If you can, specify what font, and where I can download it from (I suggest browsing through www.1001freefonts.com).
If there is anything else you would like changed about the picture, just say so.

In .jpg format:



In .png format:

In order to make a good banner, the banner should have something to do with the public that is visiting your website... for example a couple of fotos of the team in action... only a thought...

Wanted to make one but can't view the other pages of your website, so can't get any photos either...

This is a LEAGUE, not one specific team.

What pages were you unable to access? I can access any of them just fine.

I have included the main logo in the design, but imo it looks a lot more tacky now...

Please notify me of any changes you would like...




PS: The logos you want us to include have very rough edges...i have used a bit of time "ripping" them propperly from your old site...if anyone else wants the nice verisons with antialiased edges, please PM me...

EDIT: Just wondered whether you have the original artwork for the tower from the logo. If i had just that, i might be able to include it in a nicer way.

I like it without the enlarged Austin Metro Baseball League going across the whole thing.

They don't have rough edges, I provided them in illustrator format. I forgot to post .EPS but will do so tonight.

I found that capitol image as a GIF file years ago and created a vector
image from it.

LukeakaDanish

Well, we no longer have any action photos from any games in the league.

I have tried to get several photographers to come out to games and
submit them to no avail.

We have 40 teams and play on 8 different fields so it is a difficult task.
