Be the person who helped fix this website!

Postby Blackhawk » Thu Jul 28, 2016 9:42 am

Contest time! You want to get that old, outdated website fixed? Well, here is your chance!

From now until Friday, September 2nd at noon we are asking all artists, professional or aspiring, in Dagorhir to develop a design for the official Dagorhir bumper sticker contest. Designs should be made as a 6-inch circle, a 6 inch by 4 inch oval or a 3.75 by 7.5 rectangle, and should be limited to two colors (more colors = more money for printing). Black is considered a color for these purposes.  All Designs should also be 300 dpi, submitted as a .JPEG with corresponding Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator file (for the ease and sake of the printers, we will only use the winning file to be printed).

---***VERY IMPORTANT***---  All submissions will ONLY BE ACCEPTED ON THIS THREAD. People can voice their opinions here, or on a Facebook thread that we will set up for this purpose, in order to help the initial judges decide the finalists. If you want to show support for your friends to make it to the finals please post! Your voice matters and we would like to hear what the people have to say.

As submissions come in, links will be posted to our Moderated Facebook group in order to help people see what your community members are doing. Everyone deserves to see what our community can do!

Once all submissions are in, a small group of judges will decide on the final 3 designs, based upon the comments received on the boards. We will then submit those 3 designs to be voted on by you, the community! From September 3rd at 12:01 AM EST until September 5th at 8PM EST (Labor Day weekend) voting will occur on the official moderated Dagorhir page here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/197526817022129/ . Once voting is over, we will post our winner and be able to start selling these bumper stickers to anyone who wants to help us fix the website and make it great again!

Proceeds from the sale of this sticker will go to revamping our outdated website. Let’s work together to do something great for our entire community, while also getting a sweet new bumper sticker out of the deal.  Thanks you everyone for your support, we look forward to helping strengthen our group. Please feel free to ask any questions below pertaining to the contest.

Let's start seeing those designs!

Is there any update on this? Some people might be really eager and have a few designs ready to send in...

Hey, folks. It is not well defined what you're asking for, here. A design is usually the arrangement of elements such as text and images and colors and can include creation of a logo or other image or the manipulation of type. It does not include writing. Usually when asking for a design the client provides the words, and/or indicates the things the design must have: like the word "Daghorhir" and the inclusion of the trademark info (as was necessary for Rag t-shirts). Or the inclusion of a website, social media address or phone number.

What do you want to the bumper sticker to say? A design that just says "Dagorhir" is not very useful.

Without that information it is difficult to submit a design - because if you add it after the design is accepted, it will no longer be the design you picked.

Are you actually asking for people to write and design this? If so, that adds a complexity to judging. What if somebody has a killer design but a lame slogan, or vice versa? And please don't say you'll pick a slogan from one and a design from another - that's a designer's nightmare.

"Colors must be limited to 2."

So is the base/free color white? or is there no such thing?

What about shades? Does a grey picture with back writing count as 1 color? (grey is just less black)

Thanks!

1st submission:

True 2 color red/white. I came up with the saying and thought it would be fun on the back of a car.

2nd/last submission:

The original picture was taken by Spyder of the Pointed Heart at Olympics XII. She has given me permission to use it and for Dagorhir to use it should it win. I cropped it and altered it with Paint.net. The red can be subbed to black to save a color if needed.

Behold, the glory of the Tucked One!

Edit: To clarify, this is a one color job. There are shades and tints but it can all be produced with one ink cartridge.  It can also be made in any color so if it gets picked and you want to see other colors let me know.

Here's the next one!

As you can see, I either *really* want to be the one who helped fix this website or I hate my job and this makes me happy...

Sorry I forgot about this. Biggest challenge was the 2 color limit.

This crashed and burned. lack of entries, lack of interest, and the company offering the bumper stickers changed their pricing.
