Banner Needed for Named Entry

Post Team

Hello again!

Possibly a unique opportunity, this one.

We've had an archive going for Entry of the Month for quite a while, but I only realised today that it's actually a named Entry: <./>EntryoftheMonth</.> As you can see, B has made a great animated table for it, but we think we need something a bit more suited to the Entry's exalted status.

I've been trying to do one myself, but I'm just not good enough to do it justice. So I thought I'd ask if anyone in the Community Artists is up for the challenge?

I'm trying to standardise on two image formats, and either would be suitable for this archive:

200x200px square - for example http://www.bbc.co.uk/h2g2/blobs/gnomon-sundial.jpg
500x100px square - http://www.bbc.co.uk/h2g2/blobs/websailor.jpg

Graphics should also be as small as possible without affecting image quality, with a maximum size of 80kb. Jpegs or gifs are fine, and can be solid or transparent.

If you fancy a go, send your ideas to us at postteam[at]googlemail[dot]com - if we get more than one suitable submission, we'll use them alternately so nobody's work is wasted!

Thanks for listening!

Of course, there is no such thing as 500x100px 'square', but you get the drift smiley - blush

But if it's all the same to you, I'll be trying for a rectangular one anyway smiley - winkeye
