Title: Design contest
Post by: Nekobaghira on August 24, 2007, 08:12:58 AM
Hello!

We would like to redesign the repository pages.  (These are the static pages, that just give information - history, appearances, etc).  I would like to see what you would design for these pages.  I know there are allot of talented people on this site.  The one we like the best will have their design put on the site and will get a prize. 

At the moment the prize is GG T-shirt, however I will be looking for a Gambit Collectible to award the winner with as well. 

The deadline for entries is October 31st.  (The day we put this site back up from its days of being gone!, an anniversary for this incarnation of the site).

Tips hat to CrazyDragon who thought up the idea!  Thanks CD.

I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Oh, and bonus points will be awarded for a pure CSS design (no tables).  >:D

Because someone has to ask... you're looking for a demo with graphics and layout, not an actual full redesign until the winner's chosen... right?

I would like to try, but what do you mean by a demo? Um I'm not so good with computer terms(or maybe it's the allergies talking). Can someone please post an example pic of what you mean?
God Bless,

Just a design, not a completely built page. Just an example of how you would like the pages to look like.

Exactly. You'd set up your graphics, your layout, where your links would go, how you'd style your text, but you don't build the whole site. Just one page of what it'd look like with your CSS/html/whatever. :)

I think you are right Spec.  It's a great idea and not sure if there is any interest in doing it. 

So - Who would be interested in doing this???

I am, but I don't know if I can get it done by the end of the month.

Post by: Nekobaghira on September 12, 2007, 07:48:33 AM
The deadline is Oct 30th.  We added more time I thought.  So, you've got plenty of time.  And if everyone wants more, let me know.

I'm guessing just you Neva.  Makes me want to learn some graphic arts stuff.

Lol! I thought CD was doing something, since she thought up the idea. But no one else? (I guess I'll have to make another thing to give people something to choose from, lol!)
Title: Re: Design contest
Post by: CrazyDragon on October 21, 2007, 12:33:59 PM
I'm still alive! :P (I just had no access to the Internet because of a stupid provider-change)

Yeah - but theoretically, I've started the contest and soooo... I can't really take part :P
I also thought that more people would join... hmm... Ah well - I don't have time to make an example-site. :( I have to do a lot of things for school (for the exams) now and draw/paint pictures for two art contests.
Damn...

Sure, here's mine:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v41/Nevaratoiel/ggrepository01.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v41/Nevaratoiel/ggrepository02.jpg

Basically, the second is the same, but then with content. It's not the best, but it didn't take me long at all. Well, it's all the inspiration I have at the moment.

But I'm still for one layout over the entire place, instead of all these different layout each section.
Title: Re: Design contest
Post by: Adiago on November 02, 2007, 01:25:41 PM
Sure, so this is what I've done, unfortunately I couldn't finish it complete as I'd like to show you the final product but this is pretty much it, with some coding (images & content) it'll be pretty complete :), enjoy!

Great entry Nevaratoiel, very clean & pretty.

I like clean. You obviously spent more time on it Adiago. Very very very pretty! Much better than mine. :P (Like I said, I have no inspiration whatsoever)
Title: Re: Design contest
Post by: Souba on November 02, 2007, 06:33:34 PM
Wow  :D I love yours they look so cool!
But now I feel shy about my design.  :-\ Oh well mine is a play on the original design, so I guess you wouldn't say its anything like amazingly different. Anymoo I had a lot of fun doing this, and  it's great practice for me!  :gambit:

Surprise, surprise! LOL

Nah, I hadn't time to make one :( I've started something, but couldn't finish it.



Adiago, Neva and Souba: Very nice layouts! :D Bravo! :D

Post by: Nekobaghira on November 03, 2007, 08:58:51 AM
Wow!  I'm impressed!  This will be hard to choose.  I really do like the slick neat design of Adiago's, I like the GG aspect in Nevas and I like the fun fonts in Scouba's. 

Now when we posted this, am *I* the one picking or did we say we'd vote?  Or are we letting folks look here and pick?

Yes, Adiago's design is the one.  Can you work with that??

Title: Re: Design contest
Post by: Nevaratoiel on December 21, 2007, 05:21:14 PM
I can work with anything. BUT... it would be easier if I had Adiago's layout in a layered file like a .psd or so...
Title: Re: Design contest

Alrighty, I'll pm him and have him send to me, and I'll get it to you.

Adiago have seen the mail, but haven't had the time to answer and at the moment he can't find the files to the layout. that's why it's taking to long :/

Aaa, I can't believe it takes an "APB" on me to get a hold of me, I'm so ashamed :(. I'm sorry I've been MIA for a while, I went home to my parents and have just been swamped with one thing after another (especially my biggest exam ever I have barely scratched on the surface).

Oh, I got the email you sent, I was just in a real hurry (and in Stockholm visiting my sister) so I left it like that thinking of replying once I got back but forgot unfortunately.

As I said above I'm not currently home so I've had some trouble finding the PSD file (3computers, 2external hd's + usbs lol) but I think I know where I have it and will do my best to have it to you by tomorrow so you can start coding it (even if I have to re-do it from scratch) :)

Once again I'm sorry for the delay I've just never been this stressed in my entire life to be honest.

Let the spanking begin!  :gambit:

I guess I should have added smiley faces to my stuff, I was thinking I was more humorous than actually appeared on text.  And quite frankly, I let allot of time go by and no one said anything.  So, knowing people move, or find other things.  I had no idea.  So, its not a big deal for me to at least make another attempt since I had heard nothing.   ;D  It was totally my intent to playfully call for Adiago to reply, not knowing if he would or not.

Don't tempt me to spank you!  LOL  :gambit: 

I understand the holiday/family/real life craziness.  You should put your family and all that stuff first. 

I also do the same thing, you open the email and say, "Hey, I'll get to that  - I will". Then a time goes by and you've moved so far beyond it that you forget it was there.  I know I've let time go by and can relate to the ideology.

Anyway, I'm glad you are alright and still are about - and when you can get to the files .. that would be wonderful.  Take your time, I'm just glad you still check the site out from time to time.  I was worried that we might not see you again.  Thanks allot, I really do appreciate it. 

 :)

Oh, don't worry I'm never leaving this place I might just be a  little busy from time to time but I'll always be around, simply an email/pm (or contact through WW) away hehe.

I wish I could code the layout for you as well but it would take time since I have a lot to do at the moment so hopefully Nevaratoiel will be able to work with my structure of the PSD (I work in layers and sort them in folders, love me layers lol).

Anyways I can't wait to see it up and Nevaratoiel just PM me if you need help with anything specific or have any questions :)

Don't worry. I love layers too. Every little thing in a different layer. Sometimes I have so many layers I get lost in them. ;D So that will work very well. I'll go work on it as soon as I've gotten it. Thanks for finding the time to find it.
