Default Design Our New Forum Header.

The Forum Header we now have is the Old GMForum one with the "Home of the Pontiac Bonneville Club" superimposed over it. It served its purpose to get started and I agree with the many criticisms of why an SUV in a Forum about sporty GM cars. I was planning to sub this project out but had a few offers from members to help out. So, I am going to have a contest. You can submit your design here if you want it to be considered. When the time comes, I will close this thread decide on a winning design. That design'* maker will have bragging rights, credit for it somewhere within the Forum, a couple Decals, a handful of Forum Contact Cards, and ....... a hat. Here'* the basic rules:

1) The Header can be no larger than 100x600 pixels (Present Header is 100x500)

2)It Must have the GMForum Logo


3) And "Home of the Pontiac Bonneville Club"/BF logo (Like the one there now)

4) It should have 3 GM cars, Your choice, but one of them must be a Bonneville. And none of the others can be larger than the Bonneville.

5) It must match the gradient Blue already in place to the right of the Header Pic.

6) Cars must be of "photostock quality" with no background/scenery.

7) All submissions become the sole property of gmforum.com

Go ahead and use this thread to ask questions, post up mockups for feedback, and ultimately post the final design. I know this will take some time and not going to post a time limit yet. But one will come with fair warning in time.

I will put one together in the next day or two. Are you looking for only 3 cars, or at least 3 cars?

Trent, your photo is a good example of what we are looking for. High Res without a background. Eric it would be 3 or more I guess. When I was given a 100x600 limit from our IT (Page load concerns and their effect on search engine ranking) I thought I wanted at least 3, but more might not fit well into the space available. But 3 minimum, if you feel your design can accommodate more. Raptor I am crinkling my nose about a truck/suv being in the design. The one we have there now has gotten nothing but criticism and I dont see them as representative of a Forum percentage group large enough to warrant including one in our header. We're about making GM sedans sporty, and had only 2 posts in the GMC section since we put it up.
