Here’s a chance to display your artwork in front of Kongregate! Submit a Halloween themed design for Kongregate’s header to help us to get into the spirit.

Guidelines: Art may be as wide as you want, but keep in mind that most users have 1024px x 768px resolution, so try to keep artwork to be shown between the blue lines below. The height of the header is 90 pixels.

Also, the artwork should not cover up existing content (logo, utility links, sign-in box), as indicated in grayed-out areas below.

Have fun and we look forward to seeing what you guys come up with!

EDIT: Oh yeah, you may also change the color of the header, if red is not to your Halloween liking!

@smigbob: Actually, I’m the UI designer for Kongregate. Are you gonna submit something??

 
Flag Post

No, but if I were you, I’d take a look at Jindo’s.

Well the pumpkin Jindo made doesnt look kongregatey.

Oh totally. We like Jindo’s and will consider his design with everyone else’s. The only thing I see is that his current art will be covered up by the above-mentioned content in the header.

It’s okay, as long as it looks Halloween-y =)

what is a UI plus here is my first submission.

Great! UI stands for user interface. Basically a UI designer is a fancy term for web designer, but taking in more account for the users’ interaction with the site.

Ooh, sounds fun -draws concept art, DOESN’T scan it because my scanner is a POS, opens up GiMP and a Wacom tablet.
More details later, lemme go draw the concept art.

Haha, that’s hilarious. I don’t think we can actually do that, though. :(
