@ryan: Now comes the harder decision....go with the original bomb tongue demon or the bomb tongue demon with skeuomorphism vynl record motif?
I was just tooling around in Photoshop, trying to figure out how legible my submission would be, if actually used on an iphone (or in itunes). Ended up making this:
The podcast app has blurry text, so I might take a second pass at the mockup. But it all looks super crisp on my phone, so I'm not too worried about that. In general, just gives a decent idea of how it all might look.
Here's a link to my template, if you're interested in making your own:
Ignore the font warnings - just don't replace any text, and you'll be fine.
I love the way it looks on the phone. If it doesn't win, I wish there was a way I could just use it anyway.
EDIT: Nevermind, it looks like you did win! Congratulations!
This is in a weird zone where it's not bad enough to be considered hilariously bad, but it's not good enough to win. Kinda like the Cleveland Browns. But I like it and that's all that matters so back off you judgmental people who don't get funny football references.
Love the new Art for the Podcast! It showed up in my Zune thingy and I was happy!
If I lived in a perfect world I wouldn't mind the Giant Bombcast being renamed to 'Bombcast' and the Giant Bomb Interview Dumptruck being renamed to 'Interview Dumptruck' since both names are kinda long and redundant? Of course they are sorta needed for normal people who maybe don't know what a Giantbomb is... I guess... if you wanna give a shit about THOSE people.
EDIT: Sup with the faded letters on the winning image? Upside down stuff that doesn't seem to spell a word? I guess I missed the joke or it's some left over layer text? Here:
As you can see, Jeff is holding a jar and a controller, Ryan (or Ryman) has a delicious can of coconut milk, Brad has his trusty keyboard, Vinny is being very careful holding his son Max and Patrick has a dinosaur and a ghost. I think this picture best reflects the interests of the Bombcast crew and the site at large.
I think we have a winner.
Please finish this. If only for me to see.
Just discovered that the old Bombcast rainbow art I loved so much contained stock vector art :(
