FINAL ROUND! Top 2

Below please find the two mock-ups. Thank you for your patience and input everyone! With our current ginormous database we had to do the mock-ups in a way that would not affect our current setup. So please bear in mind that these are an idea of how it will look, though not 100% exact. You will see some code and brackets please ignore that, (it won't be on the final), the menu will have a color to match each theme, and the background will go longer (vertically)

We hope this give a better idea though!

Thank you again!

Hey everyone,

Now that you've had a little time to adjust to the new forum layout, how about you help us dress it up further? We'd love to see what you can come up with to enhance the forum's looks, which is why during the next couple of weeks we'll be having a skin contest.

No, not that kind.

Summon your best graphic skills and show us what you think our forums should look like! After the submission deadline everyone will be able to vote for their favorite design, and the winner will see their work made public in time for the Z2 release! Whether you're inspired by the chaos of Deconstruction and Ziltoid, the soothing sounds of Casualties of Cool, Ghost and Ki, or anything and everything in between, we'd love to see what you can come up with!

Image
- Winner will receive a signed Z2 Digipack CD with a personalized drawing by Devin himself!
- Bragging rights and gratitude from everyone at the HDR Forums.
- A cool rank/badge to display on your avatar.


Image
Your Design submission will consist of two elements: a header and a background for the HDR Forums
Header: Dimensions: 1080px width x 300px height
This will be the centerpiece of the HDR Forums. Make it as glorious as you'd like!
Background: Dimensions: full image at least 1680px x 1080px, or tiled background at least 400px x 400px
Please note that only a portion of the background displays on each side of the forum. An overly complicated background will probably not translate well.
File formats accepted: JPG, PNG, PDF, PSD (High quality please)

To submit your entry please send an email to : contest@hevydevyforums.com
Subject: HDR Forums Skin Contest
You can attach the actual files, or submit a link to your files (i.e. Flickr, Google Drive, photobucket, etc).

This sounds like an awesome contest. I'm excited to see what people come up with. Having little to no skill in web design, I'll sit this one out and watch from the side. :)

Thinking through this... Similar to the question by coffeegrinder... The header contains links and HDR logo currently, are you looking more or less for a blank canvas to apply these same elements, or do you need a text and logo treatment as well?
Will you be re-theming the actual forum area to match the color scheme of the art?

Thanks

I have a question, just a small one, though.


Does the header need (or is it desirable to have) any kind of titles?

You know, such as "Hevy Devy Forums " ?

That is all, for now.


Off to the kitchen!


Hey there! The HDR logo will be applied to the header to keep with the branding. If you do come up with a cool design where you spell out "Hevy Devy Forums" that would work as well. It is not necessary though

Good luck! :D

Hi! Thanks for the questions!
The HDR logo will be applied to the header to keep with the branding. You don't have to worry about adding it.
The top menu and social media links will be applied as well.

The wining design will be adapted to the forums, and accent colors will be matched to the color scheme of the winning design. Other things might be adapted as well but it's hard to say until seeing the winning design. For instance, the top menu could be repositioned if it would really compliment the new header.

Hope that helps! Good luck!

Well spoiler alert, my design's header is basically a one giant, transparent-dependent centerpiece that's supposed to compliment the background. My knowledge in PHPBB is a bit rusty (read: non fucking existent at this point), but I think forum development allows logos/headers to be centered. Correct me if I am wrong though...

That is correct! :D The design will be adjusted to fit as needed and the template code itself takes care of centering and positioning. No worries about phpBB we want your graphic skills! :D
