I like that second one of the SpooF's, the contrast of the color stuff on the grey scale background makes is cool.

@bogey, I'm actually a gimp person and I take great pride in the fact that I've never ever bought a piece of software, bootlegged yes, but purchased no.

I like the first one a lot... I like the touch of red on the background I think that it fits.

Here's my entry.. I did it in Flash, so I don't think there's a way to display it, but here's a link to it.

I love it. Really good entry. It's good to see entries from Flash as well as Photoshop/GIMP. So far there has been a good variety of banners.

Thanks SB! I was hoping to use this as a chance to learn ActionScript 3.0 (just got Flash CS3), but I finally gave up and used 2.0.

Just looking at the rules for this comp, it looks like the only restriction is 728x90 right? So it isn't limited to a certain kilobyte size or anything? Although we should try and keep them as small as possible...

I think Bigwebmaster said they needed to be under 50kb.

I thought for sure that 50kb would make Flash out of the question, but mine ended up at only 26kb somehow...

I'm finding that with Flash it's more about optimizing the images you bring in from Photoshop than anything you do in Flash to compress. I just used the default settings to export the .swf.

Sweetness Bogey! The only thing though is that the black text towards the top is a little hard to read.

What color do you suggest I'm asking because it looks ok to me but that may be because I created it...

I'm using the dark theme, and the black doesn't jump out with the dark grey background, right now it still looks the same. I wonder if you gave it kind of a fuzzy white drop shadow like the other text if it might rise into view.
