Hello all you fledgling designers and artists, as you may (or may not) know, FE.org will be rebuilt [we have the technology] in the coming weeks on vBulletin to spruce up the joint visually as well as improve functionality and ease of use for the new admins as well as the community as a whole. would you like to know more? (http://fanedit.org/migration-support/)

In doing so we will need some new designs to display on our fancy new digs. Thats where YOU come in. We thought it would be fun to hold a contest similar to the past 'cover art contests' where users create a handful of Banners for FE and are voted on by the community. The winner(s) would then be used on the new site and be seen by BILLIONS of visitors (well, we can hope :smile:)

The current banner dimensions on FE.org and FEforum are:

800x100
http://www.faneditforum.com/styles/WoWMoonclaw/theme/images/xmasedit3.jpg
590x115
http://www.fanedit.org/images/images/felogo.png

I am not opposed to going bigger but the main info listed in the image should be able to conform to these specs if need be.

I hope you are as excited about this concept as I am, as it will be the face of FE for a good while and is a great opportunity to gather some great new art for FE users to stare at hypnotically while eating cheetos. :o

as of this writing we do not have a set date when this "contest" will end but I wanted to give prospective contestants enough time to think about and execute some great ideas.

in the immortal words of Wayne Campbell - GAME ON!

It should also be noted that we will be using ONE banner design for both FE.org and the forums, not two separate ones as it is currently. Just thought I'd clarify. :D

So the banner should promote FanEdit.org and not FanEditForum.com.

This could be an opportunity. i once approached boon with this idea for a banner: a switching banner.
so every time you visit or re-fresh, the banner is a random new one. like at Twitch (http://twitchfilm.net/)
This way we could do as they do and feature every fan edit as it's own banner.
Still have your contest but just add ALL entries to the banner rotation.

Its cool. I like though that there is some consistency with the example you posted - same exact logo, but switching background image. I think I would like to see that consistency here too - so it feels like the same place. Might be hard to pull off with different banners from different people.

true. still, i like that the important things are being showcased: the fanedits.
The changing banner helps the causal browser to see whats available, and what else is there besides "recent releases" or "fanedit of the month" or "cover contest".
Our product is fanedits. and the more we let people know whats done, the better.

then perhaps a transparent something or other (like at twitch) and the designer can design examples of images promoting specific fanedits behind them (though any text identifying the specific edit would need to be small and displaced somewhere, as not to compete with the main website name/tagline).

I think this is maybe a workable idea, but we need to fine-tune it. I think rotating random submissions for banners wont work well.

So an idea for contest constraints: Each contestant supplies an overlay that represents the website/forum name/tagline AND examples of background images that can be used for specific fanedits (the winner could either design a background for all the edits, a lot of work, or a team can take the concept and split the work)

We're considering revising the contest so it's in two parts. The first would be a logo contest, something that would have a transparent background. After the winner has been chosen for this then the second contest would commence. Here the winning logo would be used and people would design an background for it. This way we're maintaining some consistency.

Elbarto will confirm this when a decision is reached which should be in the next day or so.

I like that idea. May i add into the mix the concept of having the logo animated?
I don't mean animated for the web but as media for faneditors to add to their projects.
All studios and production co. have them. it is a symbol of a certain kind of quality.

So the 20th Century Fox logo is this:
http://img801.imageshack.us/img801/9686/20thtwentiethcenturyfox.th.jpg (http://img801.imageshack.us/i/20thtwentiethcenturyfox.jpg/)

And the animated logo is this:
[youtube:1zfw0cx3]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qjpm5xXn8SM[/youtube:1zfw0cx3]

This shouldn't affect the contest at all, only adding a parameter to consider when designing the logo.

that is pretty much it in a nutshell, sorry for not being clear in the initial post.
we would like to get a new logo created that will be "the new FE logo" used to identify the site, then from there we can open the "contest" up to more artistic variations of that design.

make sense? thought not :smile:

I would like to mention something that may be useful. Apps & Icons, you know those little Facebook, Myspace, Twitter & App buttons that are on all the websites now, for eg a Youtube Button Icon

http://uploadpic.org/storage/originals/thumb_3n8fs4ej3222l22sfrjsfn23n2.png

I think it's a good idea to have a logo that will look good on that scale too because those little buttons are everywhere so I think it's something to consider.

Q2
08-11-2010, 04:21 PM
Ummm this seems to be the most flexible contest ever :lol: Not sure if we're supposed to be sending ideas via PM or somthing but as everything is up in the air as to what comes first, the template, the logo, the banner, the theme I just thought it would be best to post my intial ideas as I kinda get the impression what ever logo wins will be adapted anyway.

It's all in the thread haphazardly laid out. :)

We'll post the theme.

Logo contest for 2 weeks. Logo chosen.

Banner contest for two weeks utilizing logo. Banner chosen.

Completed logo/banner might be used. :-P

FatherMerrin
08-11-2010, 04:29 PM
Completed logo/banner might be used. :-P

:lol: Yeah, don't back yourself into a corner thunderclap whatever you do :lol:

Now I know the timetable I took my intial idea down, but I still think having a icon compatible logo will be useful in the future. As so many people use their iPhones to surf the web it kinda makes sense to have a button friendly logo.

Q2
08-16-2010, 05:13 PM
For those of you aching to start on a logo design and banner here are the details.

To see what the theme is going to look like visit http://www.fanedit.org/forums

There are three components to the banner that you must adhere to. They are:

logo.png - the main logo
branding_bg.png - middle portion of the banner, designed to expand and retract with the browser window
branding_right.png - right portion of the banner

If you're not sure what I mean regarding the middle portion go the site above and expand your browser horizontally. Notice how the banner expands in the middle.

So for the final banner design you should stick with this design keeping the sizes the same.

You can download the archive containing the three files from MegaUpload here (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=TJO8GCCV).

The LOGO CONTEST will end AUGUST 31, 2010. A vote will be made during that week, and then the banner contest will begin the following week.

The missing fonts are : Beverly hills Cop and Highlander.
Maybe I forgot one, don't remember well.
Of course several tests could/should be done with other fonts to make a better looking logo.

Speaking of "logo".
What we do here for now is basicaly just find a good font, twist it a bit, and make a banner.
But could not we have a "real" logo too? Like a drawing that represent the site. Or, better, like the FOX logo, transforming the name of the studio into a real logo.

FatherMerrin
08-19-2010, 01:41 PM
I'm thinking of having a crack at the banner but not sure I have the time sadly. Like TMBTM I like the idea of a real logo so I've come up with a few.

http://img825.imageshack.us/img825/5993/felogos.jpg

As the banner has yet to be decided I just thought I'd put some basic rough ideas up first as I'm sure once things become finalised stuff will have to altered & tweaked. But that's where my head is at regarding a logo.

so far I am liking elbarto's #2 design the best:

http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g203/elbarto1/FEBanner1.jpg

Both were clearly the most professional looking to me. The first one is cool, but a little too 80's BMX for me. I have an idea, though not sure if I'll have sufficient time to work it out before y'all's deadline.

Keep the ideas flowing.

@FatherMerrin - as a rough layout, I like your logo in the upper left. After some texture and effects it could look really cool. Its very superhero like. Which I have mixed feelings about :grin:

I'm liking elbarto's designs too, though I think maybe darker tones would be cool.

I think this is actually quite a nice competition. Normally with a competition people put their ideas up, they get voted on & that's it. But with this competition as everyone who visits this site is going to be effected by the result it's kinda only fair for members to comment on peoples ideas to see if we can reach upon something people are broadly happy with.

It's like a Work-In-Progress Competion. :-D

I quite like that one too. But I'm going to wait until the banner is decided but I tart up the logo. I mean the banner maybe in a font that doesn't go well with what I've done, so I'm just gonna wait & see now.

Decide to go with simplicity.
One word. like skype, google, yahoo.
the typeface is very simple. easy to read.
even thou we edit digitally i wanted to evoke the early days of editing with the cut ribbon. could be film, could be 1/4 tape.
hell, in the early days of tv, they use to splice 1" videotape.
the slash is slanted to give it energy.
there's lots of animation possibilities.

The banner could be changed monthly to go with the FE of the Month. Just a thought.

might be a bit of overkill with the monthly contest. that fanedit will already be showcased as a "new release" and as well get a "fanedit of the month" showcase as well. adding the banner on top of all that?

The fun with a true random banner generator is that all the fanedits can be showcased, regardless of their age, quality, merit or awards. and it gives the user a fresh experience everytime they visit the site.

And because its random, its the great equalizer. it gives any fanedit the chance of being the banner of the site for someone at some point in time.

But this should be an automated experience. I'm not out to make work for some poor sap (you) that has to re-fresh the banner once a month.

I also think that FANEDIT works better for branding than FANEDIT.ORG
One is a web address, the other is what we do, who we are, the art we make, the place we meet.
Is not our motto "less is more"? should that also not apply to our brand experience?
Any time anyone mentions the word "fanedit" I want them to think not just of a thing but also of a place, a community of creative people, to think of skill and craft and talent.
by making it simply FANEDIT we will increase brand awareness tenfold.

If there is an opportunity to implement it, now is the time.

I'll have to look into it. Right now the style is designed to be fluid. Not sure if we can make it fixed. I'll have to contact the designer.

That's my point exactly. look at it this way, when you think of doing research on the web, you don't think "google.com". You think google.
So what we want is when people think "creative, alternative takes on things" for people to think "fanedit". and they will think of this site.

And here's one more plus: any other website, review, MAXIM magazine article, tv news or web report that uses the word "fanedit" will also be advertising us.

Of course this is just the beginning. Because a brand also represents a personality or a way of life that identifies a product.
It can be an attitude. And that my fellow artist, we have plenty of!
We are the street artist of the digital domains. (I, of course, am Banksy!)

I can understand why the site was called Fanedit.org in the early days because it'd helped people know who you are & where you are at the same time. But this site is pretty big now & I think just calling the site "Fanedit" would a step in the right direction.

But I think deciding whether the site is refered to as Fanedit or Fanedit.org is something that needs to be looked at before the end of the competion as the designs people are making are directly influnenced by what the site is called.

better yet. I would still shorten it up a bit. make it a bit more widescreen (especially for those with lower res monitors. big banners, though look pretty, take up a lot of space.

the concept is coming along nicely.


I don't have a huge opinion about fanedit vs. fanedit.org. I seriously doubt it would make the site "10-fold" branded better (lets see that algorithm, btw ;) ). BUT I see the point behind putting "fanedit" on the banner. Currently we are THE site.

We (i.e. Admins) had a discussion about the name and we've decided that FanEdit.org is the official name.

I would like to clarify some of the thought process.

Fanedit.org is a place, a very specific place, and it is a destination. Fanedit by itself is a concept, an idea, an art and an action. I'm a faneditor and I fanedit. When I make a fanedit, I can post and advertise it in a multitude of places. When I want to discuss the artform, and see who else has made fanedits, I can go to multiple places.

Where do I go to advertise my fanedits and discuss my favorite art form? I go to fanedit.org. Not digital-fanedits.com. The place is as important as the name, and for us they are the same.

But at digital-fanedits.com you could read two posts a day!

I didn't even know there were other fanedit sites :lol:

In that case Fanedit.org is the way to go. If there's other sites called "faneditthis.com" or "faneditthat.com" having the .org in the name will stop any confusion. The last thing we want is to create a logo or name that might lead a newbie to another site by accident.

Got me thinking I thought I'd use the "O" in Org in a more creative way.

Again these are rough ideas & I'm holding out on the final design as I'm waiting to see which banner wins then I'll tailer my design to that. But as people have mentioned rotating banners etc I think the above ideas work quite well, using the "O" in a more creative filmic way.
