In addition to this call for entries for the home page banner:
We're looking for a few good artists for the top of the discussion boards.
Once the website redesign and recoding is complete, the top-most space in the headers of the three boards will be utilized for "house ads" for
logged in members (guests will still see normal banner ads). Meaning this is the area where we promote important ATS things to our membership.
We'd like to have a nice bank of banners that do everything from call attention to important threads, to simply provide excellent quotes or ideas
that are compatible with the ideals of ATS. These "house ads" will not be
simple "interesting graphics" like we used to have behind our
logo, but important messages.
Size: 728x90 (typical IAB "leader board")

Post your entries in this thread. I will be the sole judge and jury.
Some hints and tips:
Don't use the ATS logo... it's "bad form" to have two logos side-by-side at the top.
Our fonts are "Arial Rounded Bold" and "Abduction", please use these.
If you're promoting one specific board (ATS, BTS, or PTS) please make sure the background color of the banner is the same as the color of the board
If you're creating a simple statement or famous quote, please use a black background.
Our esteemed graphically-gifted SuperMod, ZeddicusZulZorander, will soon be the manager of an all-new ATS premium goods merchandise store. We'll be
using the "premium services" top-tier option of a highly-reviewed online swag vendor, but markup on the items will be very low
to keep prices
reasonable for our members. We'll be having several other design contests where you can also contribute to things like T-shirts, hats, mugs, mouse
pads, stickers, and more. Watch for the announcement in a couple weeks.
