Design a Construct programmer's advert!

New releases and general discussions.

Post » Thu Sep 02, 2010 4:24 pm

A popular programming website, [url:3dizpine]http://www.stackoverflow.com[/url:3dizpine], are running a project where open source projects can put up adverts to try and get developers for free.

This isn't generally advertising Construct - it's a programmer's website, so the aim would be to get coders interested in developing for Construct (eg. plugins, behaviors, submitting IDE/runtime patches and the like), as they say in the linked post (emphasis theirs):

[quote:3dizpine]It must be an advertisement soliciting the participation and contribution of programmers writing actual source code.[/quote:3dizpine]

Their requirements (from the thread) are:
[list:3dizpine]
[*:3dizpine] The image that you create must be 220px by 220px
[/*:m:3dizpine][*:3dizpine] Can be hosted anywhere (tinypic, twitpic, your blog); we will mirror the image locally when we serve it.
[/*:m:3dizpine][*:3dizpine] Must be GIF or PNG
[/*:m:3dizpine][*:3dizpine] No animated GIFs
[/*:m:3dizpine][*:3dizpine] Absolute limit on file size of 150kb[/*:m:3dizpine][/list:u:3dizpine]

See the thread for more details and other examples. I'm not much of an artist so I thought I'd ask the community, we can vote on the best one, and submit it for some coder publicity :)

[size=150:3dizpine]Please don't submit directly to the linked thread - post your ads below and we'll vote on the final submission to StackOverflow![/size:3dizpine]

Are we looking for something professional in appearance, or humorous or something in between?

In between sounds about right. But up to you.

Hi there! I don't know if this is anything like what you're looking for,
but I decided to upload it nonetheless:


I'm not a very good artist so please bear with me.

Might not want to oversell. "Ultimate" can have a negative impact.

Yeah, I agree with you, so I tried a different 'catch phrase'.

I apologize for (the overuse of?) the 'Birth of a Hero' font. It just looked cool, hahaha :lol:
