Signature of the Week

The Theme is: You are the magazine!

Explanation: (mostly Possum's words)

For this week's competition, Possum Roadkill has whipped up something very unique. You are the magazine.

Basically, you work at a big weekly magazine as the art editor. Your evil boss (Possum) forgot that you were on vacation (yeah right) and has decided that he wants you to design a new look for the cover of the magazine.

He wants you to create a new cover header this week for next week's issue, in fact, your job depends on it!

You must create the following:

1. A background.

3. A Title. Your name is the magazine, or part of your name. For example: Possum Roadkill becomes "Possum Weekly News", or "Roadkill du Jour," an epicurial magazine.

4. Issue date. Use a date from some time this week.

5. Issue price. The sky is the limit, but remember it has to sell.

6. A magazine slogan or mission statement. Ah yes, another creative aspect you have to deal with.

You must link to any photos or renders that you use. It'd be great if you share with us the name(s) of the fonts used. Sig dimensions as usual must not be larger than 500px wide by 200px high.

Reminders, you learned in school (wink) that the general design of a magazine cover needs to address the following:

1. Identify the personality of the magazine. Sports, news, food, games, etc, etc.....

2. Attract the target audience: those who vote for your sig in this competition.

3. Lure the reader into the magazine. It's got to be eye catching to attract votes.

4. Establish a visual identity (consistent use of format, be unique and creative).

To cut you some slack, here is a link to the top 40 magazine covers of the past 40 years.

Now quit slacking off around the watercooler and get back to work you darn hippie with your long hair and bell bottom jeans!

Hidden Content:
The deadline for this competition is 23:59 (11:59pm) (EST) on Tuesday, March 9th.

To see the current time in EST (my time), click here (WorldTimeServer.com).

Check the SOTW Rules!

If your entry breaks any of the rules it will be disqualified.

------------------------------------------------------------------

  • [*:10lt06f2] Max sig dimensions follow the board's max sig dimensions, 500x200. NOTE: The forum limits signatures to 500x150, so if it's too large don't try to use it as your sig.
    [*:10lt06f2] No crude / offensive language, pics, et cetera.
    [*:10lt06f2] Sig must follow the set theme.
    [*:10lt06f2] Only one entry per person and no modifications to your image are allowed after submitting your entry.
    [*:10lt06f2] You must post the URLs to any and all stock images used in your sig.
    [*:10lt06f2] You are allowed one post in this topic. That post should include your sig, links to your source images. Placeholders (empty-posting now, editing in a link to your sig later) are not permitted.
    [*:10lt06f2] When submitting a signature, do not use one you have used in a previous competition, and don't use one you made a long time ago. The idea of this competition is to get you to create new things, and if you're digging back in your storehouse of unused signatures, you're not doing that.
    [*:10lt06f2] Note also that the winner of the current SOTW gets to choose the subject for the next competition!

------------------------------------------------------------------

This thread is for posting your entries only!

If you wish to talk about one of the entries you can do so here.

If a comment or other non-entry post is mistakenly made in this thread, it will be moved without penalty to the discussion thread. Just don't be surprised when it magically jumps over there. :wink:

Good luck all, and thanks for participating! :D

The poll is online. Sorry for the delay, but I wasn't able to get the poll images to display correctly for a while.

GASP ! I can't believe you said the words Welsh Blue and Pink in the same post ! ( He hates the color pink, :lol: )

Again, thanks to everyone who entered ! I hope you had fun with the theme (and if you didn't, you won't hold it against me :lol: ), I know I did. I'm really impressed with the creativity everyone exhibited in their entry.

Yellowman and Chisco, I'm really looking forward to see what you guys come up with. You both had great entries, so I know you will use your creativity to come up with an outstanding theme. Good luck everyone, and have a great week !

ImAnOwl, good one! Now we have to have WB back in therapy! Seriously, he's getting better with pink.

Colour themes are quite boring & rarely inspire any great works. Some people tend to slap on a render & a few tweaks - done.

Personally, I hope we get more challenging ones, like the one we just had. Good idea, Possum! It was a great theme.
