After reading a post where someone requested a logo I saw how kind and helpful some of u graphic guys really are :)
I have a site, its a free site - doesn't earn very much cash so im a bit stuck for awarding money for this work. However the site does pretty well for traffic, and if someone makes me a banner that I use I can offer you a link or 88 X 31 button or if you have suggestions, fire?
As for the banner logo...
its for Tab-Archive.com
if you go to http://www.tab-archive.com and select any of the 4 links, guitar, bass, drums or lyrics and take a look inside. That main header will appear on each page - It really needs to be the same for all 4 types of entrance apart from it should include which you have selected.. for example.. currently if you click guitar.. you see
and if you click lyrics you see
Those current logo's i really don't like, I have no flare for design at all. So you can be as close or as far from those as you wish as long as they fit with the current colour scheme of the site..
Anyone got a few minutes to open their heart and graphic apps for me ? :D
thankly kindly =]

Thank you all for ur designs :)
However im looking for something that uses the whole.. simplistic design style - not too much on there but not too little.. something simple.. yet pro?
I can offer $5 for this now if anyone comes up with something :)
10-09-2004, 06:47 AM
......... i do ... a beginner .... :p & I think You can't pay only $5 for a pro job :D [hehehe]
10-09-2004, 10:03 AM
Hope you like these two I made really quick.
10-09-2004, 03:54 PM
Thanks simpl3nick for your efforts.. only thing is the ones I currently have are pretty much the same as those :(
jlinares05 - I love that top one, do you have it in and editibal file? so I can play with it.. might change the site.. and model it around that.
10-09-2004, 06:42 PM
OK, first off I' a total newb here but I couldn't find a place to say hello and introduce myself, so here I am....\me waves hello! :D
Here's my attempt with each layer used as a frame on an animated banner just for display purposes. If you are interested in using it I can send you the psd so you can play with the layers. No need for any money if you do want it, it's not exactly pro! lol :p
10-09-2004, 07:26 PM
hey Peachy welcome to CF!
actually i do really like that, i like the almost 'soundwave' type motion from the purple/white tween...
10-09-2004, 11:25 PM
Thanks for the welcome and I'm glad you like the design. :)
Here's the psd for you to do what you like with! :thumbsup:
10-10-2004, 09:38 AM
sir pannels did you choose one already? are you willing to pay?
10-11-2004, 08:52 AM
I haven't got a logo/banner for you (not enough time between study and coding jobs) but I must say I like your site, it made me decide to dust of my electric and start jammin away again ... :thumbsup:

I have been into graphics design for nearly three years now, specilizing in logos, and banners. I spent about 3 days finding some inspiration for this one, and i think you'll agree that its perfect for your site!!!
I look forward to recieving your very generous $5 per hour for my 5 hours work ($25) :thumbsup: . if you wish me to do further tasks feel free to contact me at email@example.com
10-14-2004, 03:45 PM
to add a bit of variation to my work i have also created another style for you and attached it to this. I will be charging extra if you decide to accept this design, but please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to negogiate further pricing. also feel free to leave me any feedback on my banners and what you like so much about them. :thumbsup:

my 5 hours work
That's either a really funny joke..... or not :confused:
I've whipped up a little something for you -- the attached image is a screenshot of what it would look like in your site and this zip file (http://stuff.mindlesslemming.com/tab-header.zip) contains the photoshop file and also the tiny gif which is to be repeated horizontally behind the logo graphic.
If you want to use this you will need to change this line of code:
<td colspan="2" bgcolor=#000000>
<img src="http://tab-archive.com/images/guitarheader.gif" width="500" height="65">
<td colspan="2" style="background:#21314A url(head-bg.gif) repeat-x;">
<img src="http://tab-archive.com/images/guitarheader.gif" width="529" height="65">
There's no problem with copyright infringment as the photo I used is one I took of my Strat :D (I play in two bands + used to teach)
The two fonts I used are Trebuchet MS, which comes packaged with windows; and Trajan Pro, which comes packaged with photoshop. If you want to use this but don't have photoshop/trajan pro font, let me know and I'll do up the other ones for you too.
I don't want any money in return for the work -- but if you would start going through your code and adding doctypes, quoting attributes and moving more presentational attributes to CSS that would be thanks enough :thumbsup:
...and if you don't want to use it at all; that's all good too -- just let me know either way so I can pull the zip file off the server.

Actually your work is quite clearly the joke, when you have trained as a proffessional graphics designer for three years then maybe you will be of the same class as me but untill then you can only dream.
Just to prove I am definately better than you I have come up with yet another brilliant design, to show my versatilltiy, and also to ruin your career as a graphics designer. I have no need to be offended by your pathetic jokes when i am going places in life and you're not!!! Look and weep......everybody else enjoy, and imagine that one day with years of practice you may also be able to be as good and creative as i am. Keep trying though :thumbsup:
10-15-2004, 01:47 PM
You can't possibly be serious. But you have definitely taken it a bit too far. Fun is fun, but you can't just sign up and do this sort of thing. We run a serious forum here, for serious discussion. Perhaps if you engage in some you would get some laughs out of something like this but for now I think you really just get pitty.. My advice is that you give up before you're banned for being a nuisance.
10-15-2004, 01:52 PM
Thank you all!
Mindles thats great stuff.. many thanks! I will be playing with that this evening.. big big thanks !
I will clean up the html and use some more css aswell.. needed prompted to start .. its been sat in the list lol!
10-15-2004, 01:54 PM
to further prove my ability i have imported my banner into your website, personally i think you will agree that the contrast adds such a positive effect to your website. so when will i get my payment....please contact me as i am yet to here from you so we can negotiate a reasnobile fee for my abilities. my e-mail is email@example.com .
the link to the your future site is http://www.geocities.com/a_j_oggie/1.JPG
10-15-2004, 01:57 PM
Sorry 0-Jay - I will not be sending you any cash as im not using your banner :p
10-15-2004, 02:09 PM
i dont think you should try to restrict me showing off my clear gift for this skill, i personally think that you are just jealous because you obviously are not in the same league as me when it comes to designing.
on a SERIOUS note, i would like to point out the use of the "spray" tool in my designs, i really do feel it has a dramatically positive effect upon the overall appearance of the banner.
sirpannels, why ever do you not want my design, i have recently created another, if you wish to re-consider. I will sell it even cheaper....say $20....each.
10-15-2004, 02:19 PM
saved the best for the last jus to further show off my abilities. :thumbsup: hope you like
10-15-2004, 04:21 PM
Alright -- either you're joking and you haven't learned when you should let it go, which is my multiple choice selection; or you are that errogant. I'd like to think it's the first, since that would be more humorous -- however, joking on a forum can be pretty hard to interpret -- no tone. Either way kid, you've got a few years left to become the next Keith Haring, but keep working on the spray paint can.
10-15-2004, 04:27 PM
HAHAHA Make the madness stop. Been a while since I've had a laugh on here :D
10-15-2004, 08:09 PM
This thread is wandering off topic and off professionalism.
sir pannels: Have you by chance selected one? Are you still entertaining offers? (I'm not offering anything; I'm just trying to be a helpful moderator visiting from another forum.)
10-18-2004, 11:37 AM
I now have a new and yet again improved banner, I must give you my honest opinion but all or your ideas really do suck, you seriously should re-consider your career paths now before it is too late. If you wish i could pass on my own vast knowledge to you, this latest banner has actually been designed in adobe photoshop, please rserve your opinions, especially on the spray tool which i specilize in, and really do feel the energy given off by it. you can thank me later :) http://geocities.com/gavni3/amazingbanner.JPG
10-18-2004, 01:28 PM
It was almost funny the first time; this has become a somewhat pathetic grab for laughs. I think that'll do thanks 0-Jay, we've been blown away by your awesome talents and now need time to rest. :)
10-18-2004, 01:34 PM
Alex.. I have a banner now im going to be working with mindless's banner.
0-Jay this is a post from you offering people free designs so you can build your portfollio.. im gonna say this thread would have just killed any chance of any takers on that one.. which is a shame seing as you had a paid offer there.
