I'll be away from my computer till Thursday but I still wanted to participate.

Just spent like an hour painstakingly crafting some banners on my iPad only to realise I can't upload them from this thing. :(

I'll post them when I get back home I guess. Haha.

Someone please use that thread about the mattrick/reg/tretton fight as fodder for one of these.

I need to see Don holding a blade and grinning beside the Xbox logo.

I request our god, J Allard to be in the Microsoft banner. LET IT BE SO.

I like this Sony one.

That is really slick.

Yeah, there is something... hypnotic about it.

Free idea - Someone make a Metro looking one for Microsoft.

You could have waited at least a bit longer before posting these winning banners, you winner, you.

#66 Posted by charlie_victor_bravo (1044 posts) -

I have no time to do this, so you are free to use this idea: 3 banners (microsoft, sony and nintendo). Microsoft banner: images of apples, Sony banner: Images of oranges and Nintendo banner: Images of bananas.

#67 Posted by I_smell (3925 posts) -

Well the rules are that nobody's allowed to win more than one, so the legacy banners (or any consistent theme) aren't gonna be across the whole thing unless we rally 6 people to join the same joke.

First attempt at making a banner, pretty happy with it.

WWE, E3, & Giant Bomb present Next Gen Brawl!! Live from LA! ONLY ON PAY PER VIEW!

[Just to be clear, these won't be considered for selection by the moderators. That would be shady as hell if they were, and there are a lot of far better entries, anyway.]

I couldn't really think of anything "clever" so I just graphic designed the shit out of mine. I'll probably make another set this weekend? Probably? If I have time? And stuff? Question marks?

This set is the only one I truly like.

#73 Edited by BeatSafari (6 posts) -

Here's what I've come up with so far...

#74 Edited by I_smell (3925 posts) -

Can we group the consistent themes people have made and put THOSE up for vote to the mods? Cos people are makin a whole group at a time here, and those are the ones everyone loves the most. If we just pick one of each then they all look out of place and nobody's idea looks like it was intended to.

I like the Nintendo and Sony banners from 2010. They are nice, clean and simple.

So far I've got just this, but I'll try to update.

I would appreciate any and all feedback, so don't hold back :D

Here's my first batch, made with that CBS money.

Thought I'd give this a go.

The image of Last of Us with "FROM THE CREATORS OF CRASH BANDICOOT" above it is hilarious.

The competition's really heating up now!

Here are my first two batches of designs. This first set is basically an update to one of my designs from last year.

And the second set.

I've still got Konami and ideas for more individual designs for the rest to do.

It's beautiful.

Thanks, it took way longer to draw that logo than I thought it would.

As a graphic design student myself; those are, indeed, graphic designed to heck (in a good way). It's almost too classy for Giantbomb, but they definitely get a vote from me.

@b0nd07

Those are pretty damn fantastic too. I can't decide which of your two sets I like better, but they're both quite solid; maybe the first one since they emphasize the GiantBomb part more.

#89 Posted by Brendan (8136 posts) -

I wish there could be multiple winners for each press conference. The top two or three winners for each one would allow some of the awesome graphic design ones that never win a chance. Random refreshing gives you the three podium first finishers? Probably too complicated to actually do, I know.

Yea, I laughed out loud.

Sony-alcor741 (light blue shades)

Wow some really good entries now.

@gnomeonfire: I dig that Konami banner hard, if only for the code above Kojima's head :D

Both of these really feel clean and cohesive and I like that.

Here is my offer, my make another set later.

UPDATE

Rorie has sweetened the pot here on the banner contest. Each of the six winners will receive a free month of premium membership on the site. If you're already a member, an extra month will be added to your current subscription.

You have about one day left for Konami and about five days left for the rest, so keep 'em coming!

@aurahack: I like them... Clean and classy.

Good job, man.
