[Entry 1] Tech/Grunge theme (Updated 4/04)
« on: March 20, 2010, 04:35:12 PM »
Hey everyone, been lurking this website for a while now and this contest has tempted me to finally register  :) .
If I am lucky enough to be picked, I can supply all the necessary files to implement the banner (and edit them to fit if necessary).

I wanted to capture the 3 different universes of Blizzard in this piece while still maintaining the overall color coding of the website. I felt it was fitting to move towards a "Tech/Grunge" theme for the banner.
Along with the banner I decided to slightly edit the coloring of the actual website, making the dark gray more of a black (you can see what I mean in the preview image). I felt this color gave the website a more dominant presence as well as better fitting the "Dark"Blizz.

Here is my banner submission.

I think it's quite good! I really enjoy it and I think it's a great competitor!

Thank you for the compliments! I have updated the banner with the new motto and also updated the navigation bar to better match the new banner.

Looks great. Definitely top three, if not the best.

I really like this one... Great job! My only comment concerns the zerg character. The Protoss and Terran images are clearly direct profiles of a face... For the Zerg image I kind of have to stare at it for a second to see it.

Other than that, I love the colors for each race, love the overall design.

Edit: After looking at all the others, yours is one of the only ones with well designed buttons. For that alone I gotta say this is my favorite.

Er, erulabs, the banner isn't representing the three Starcraft races, it's representing the three universes of blizzard; Starcraft, Warcraft and Diablo.

I would think the lich king is more of a zerg type with that whole scourge undead army thing...

I don't know how I missed that. I don't really know WoW so much, don't know why I thought that was a protoss.

Impresive, but a tad of the subject... but it would really be cool if the leech king would be a protons unit.

Looks like that's supposed to be Protoss\Zerg\Terran (but instead became Scourge\Zerg\Terran), though I would personally love it if it was StarCraft\Diablo\WarCraft for the three big universes of Blizzard.

Fail much?
It's Arthas (Warcraft), Diablo (Diablo), and a Marine (StarCraft). Those are all taken from the newest games... WoW:WotLK, Diablo III, and StarCraft II. The second one is NOT a random zerg.
