Check out EPTAC's Banner ad contest…
We are a training and consulting company for the electronics industry. Basically we provide solder training and IPC (our licensing body) certification to folks that assembly electronic components on to printed circuit boards. Our web site is www.eptac.com. We training predominately through the United States and Canada.
What's your vision?
Each year we run banner ads in various trade emailed newsletters and on web sites that are specific to the electronics industry, announcing the availability of our new yearly schedule, in this case 2013. They are in a nutshell, getting boring. There are seven sizes and I have attached the ones we ran last year. The 70x55 and 120x99 can be static and do not have to be animated or GIF files. The other ones can if you choose in your design to get the message across. Basically we want to get them to click to download the lasted schedule of classes and offerings at EPTAC. Couple of the publications we run in are www.circuitnet.com www.ipcoutlook.org www.smtonline.com and www.circuitsassembly.com We are looking for something cool, that gives us a professional image and at the same time is different enough to makes us look like something you want to learn more about. I like simple designs with white space, that is not heavy with graphics. Because of the different sizes, you need to watch what is designed so that it can be shaped to fit. We have gone to simpler designs for the smaller ads, (70x55 and 120x99), i.e. different from the larger ones, just so that we could create something cool in the larger ones. The trick is to create something interesting for what can be a boring industry at times.
Remember, if you create an animated ad, the first frame really has to have the message. The reason is, that some of these ads are sent in emails and opened in Microsoft Outlook and they will not animate, so the frame they see is the first one only. The files have to be kept to a minimum in size between 50k-60k because of load speeds and size of newsletters. Sounds cliche, but thinking outside the box is encouraged. The rest of our competition and industry sure doesn't. Need our larger logo, just let me know...
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Banner ad starts at €49.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their banner ad.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
EPTAC collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
I'm sorry I can't post my design yet. Valentin did an excellent job. He's my new "Go To" graphic designer. He loves what he does and it shows!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
