Underground Blog – Looking for Graphic Artists Help

The contest will officially close on December 4th, 2009 at 7PM central time. Have fun.

As we all know, the holidays are upon us, and what better way to celebrate the Xmas season than sprucing up the blog? Over the next few days, I am going to take a look at the current sidebar info and see how I can make it better and easier to read.

In the meantime, I would love for our gracious banner to be updated too. What are the requirements? Simple:

It must say: “Welcome to the Underground” and in sub-text “Authored by Versatile & Voltaire”.

The size of the banner must be 920 x 180 pixels. If you are skilled in the graphic arts, and want to help us out, by all means have at it.

Please send your submissions by uploading it to imageshack.us and leave a link here in the comments so we (the staff) can review it.

If there are multiple entries, a poll will be done for the winner. If no one even participates, then we will just go with the existing banner until it is updated at an unknown future date. Thanks and good luck! ~ Versatile

    • i don’t like it much.
      what about something snazzy and like what you already have..
      maybe you can do some color changes and add some flair

  2. O ya btw, if anyone wants to edit or do something to change it and ur gonna post it, go ahead, jst at least give me some credit ;P

  3. Well, I thought I haven’t created anything for a while, so I gave it a try. I wasn’t sure if you wanted it to have some kind of theme, so I used website colors.
    Hope you like it: http://img228.imageshack.us/img228/4626/headerv1bydub.jpg
