    Type of Contest : Banner
    Prize : $30.00 via PayPal
    Contest End Date & Time : 9.00PM GMT : Thursday October* 4th
    Size Requirements : max. 600px x 100px (*edit increased width)

    Please check out my outstanding attempt at creating a header on Absale.com :lol:. I'd like something along the same lines in terms of theme and colors, but not looking like it was done by a 6 year old playing around with paint.

    So, try to incorporate the graph line and canon somewhere. An animated image of a human canon ball getting shot to the top would be pretty awesome. Overall, I want something that is more fun than professional.

    More info:

    - I need white or transparent background

    - I'd like the graph line to represent a mountain, with the canon firing to the top.

    - sharp text, not rounded. Try to make the canon gimmick the focus of the banner.

    Thanks J-Man for the attempt & knives for editing, I was half a sleep when I posted it. I'm going to edit it now, to include all this.

    Feedback (sorry this is my fault for not posting in the original)

    The only improvement is the canon, still I'd like something even more modern and over the top. Think big ass human canonball type of canon.

    - I need white or transparent background

    - I'd like the graph line to represent a mountain, with the canon firing to the top.

    - Smaller, sharper text, not so rounded. Try to focus on the canon gimmick more than the text.

    Thanks,

    Tom

    Go for it. I can always change the colours of the site if the header is good.

    That's pretty nice. I like what you've done with slogan.

    Still... needs a bigger cannon (this type of cannon). Perhaps close up cannon in the foreground with the Graph (mountain) in the background. Try to get the cannon pointing at a steeper angle, not inline with the graph line.

    Not a big fan of light blue, can you scrap that colour?

    FattaT,

    Best so far, you've got the gimmick versus text balance spot on. I especially like the graph paper.

    The background cannon is exactly what I want but in the foreground. Can you add to it, likes it's just been fired.

    Great effort, thank you.

    That cannon fire is brilliant. Sample 2, motion and text is the best. Can you increase the size of 'A' and decrease the size of .com?

    Only other change I can think of is to the graph. If you could label the y-axis 'SERP" and have the numbers going in reverse order with 1 at the top. That would be perfect.

    Top 1 is great, except the cannon fire shadow has gone.
