Banner Contest Final Entries! Look Upon Their Greatness!
The DFG crew responded pretty strongly to this banner as did much of the web, but we just wanted to see a little bit more darkness in it than the original peice and as with all the finalists, we needed some work on the text. All in all, a really strong entry and though it has a lot of bright colors, I think it speaks to the DFG ideals. Directly below is Muffins original entry:
Up Next is Nesbet's entry:
Nesbet made a great banner, a group of Favicons and revised our blog description. All in all, one of the strongest original entries. This final version has subtle tweeks to the original image to make it a little more dramatic and fixes issues the crew had with the text. This banner originally nearly broke the tie in the first wave of entries and I am exited to see how the blog authors, local gamers and of course the DFG followers respond to this peice. Directly below is Nesbet's first entry:
Next up is the totally revamped work of Fartbush:
Fartbush, who we had wrongly called fartbrush in the beginning took our original advise, pitched it and went for a second entry all together; A balls-out move that resulted in a pretty balls-out awesome banner. Our original advise was to just move around some of the elements in the first banner and of course get the text to pop a little more. Instead, he rolled out a very strong entry for the finals. The original banner had some serious fans, so I wonder how this new banner will do with our authors! Directly below is the original entry:
All in all, some serious banner action and some serious stuff for us to consider. I have given myself and the authors just 24 hours to pick the winner and that begins now. In the meantime, I would love to hear what everyone in the blogosphere thinks of these most epic banner entries!
