Blog Designers Wanted!

A week ago, I asked you all if you thought TBC needed to change its design.. And it looks like a Yes (78%)!  I am now looking for people to design:

 - a new banner
 - a new link button
 - a new background (if necessary, it can be just white/black/etc)
 - new sidebar buttons (for example the one that says 'Contact TBC', 'Featured Bloggers', etc)
 - new Contact/FAQ/Link Badges/Register buttons

I will accept entrants until July 30. Then, the TBC readers will vote on which design they want the site to use :)

Here are a few guidelines:

 - please do not use logos, brands, characters, symbols or copyright images in your design
 - avoid religious symbols or designs which may only appeal to one group of people.. TBC is a very diverse community, and I want our look to reflect that!
 - try to make your design gender neutral and simple, something that appeals to all kinds of bloggers
 - please, nothing luminous, moving or distracting! It has to be easy on the eyes.
 - you don't have to be a professional or have experience.. Just do your best!

What's the reward? A warm fuzzy feeling, and a feeling of victory! Well, if you design blogs, winning this competition would get you a lot of publicity as TBC is visited by an average of 200 bloggers per day! The winner's full-size button/ad will be added to our sidebar and s/he will be listed as a Featured Blogger.

Please share this post on Google+, Bloglovin' or whatever other social media you use, and tell anyone who may be interested in submitting a design!

Happy designing, everyone :)

    1. The current banner is 960 px wide, so something close to that would be good. Looking forward to seeing your entry! :)
