Re: Banner for Facebook page

Okay, so let's make a list of what we want exactly. First of all, all the sites/media we need something for (whether we need a separate thing for everything or if we can share between them we can discuss later).

  • Phoenix Roleplaying (this site)

  • Facebook page

  • Blog

  • Twitter page

  • Newsletter (The Burning Question)

What do we want exactly? I'd say the following:

  • A header for the official site (and possibly the same one for the Facebook page, but as mentioned we can discuss that later)

  • A logo for on this site and possibly other media

  • A banner for when we want to advertise this page on other sides

These are just my ideas/suggestions. Are there things I've missed or is there anything else?

Exchange / affiliate buttons like those in this thread?

(same purpose of the banners, but very different size...)

Re: Banner for Facebook page

Sharing would probably be best, having different sizes for the different outlets. And having a graphic and logo isn't all that bad of an idea. In some cases, such as Twitter, there is a cover photo and an avatar. Also the advertising banner should also be the same, or very closely similar. As Giorgio stated, the clickable affiliating button should be 88x31. That is the standard size. Advertising banners, usually are no wider than 500.

Re: Banner for Facebook page

Seems our logo should be very horizontal and look recognizable at extreme low resolution. Variable sizes is simple. We should make a thread in advertising that houses all of the official banners, bugs and buttons to go for any type of application. I'm happy to create all that once we have a design we agree to.

Prefer the one at the bottom, personally.

Re: Banner for Facebook page

I would like to post a message in the next newsletter, issuing an official contest for this. In it I will state what is needed (like: banner and logo, etc.), what the dimensions of all those should be and how long people can submit their ideas. Is everybody okay with that?
