$40 Logo + Banner - paypal - 7 days - Car Tuning

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by glgotting, Nov 19, 2009.

    Hi Guys,

    I am looking for a logo + header banner, that are optimized for my Google Adsense ads.

    http://fancytuning.com/ - Fancy Tuning - The latest car tuning news
    SEMrush
    please don't use "Your car tuning resource", I prefer "The latest car tuning news"

    *Important* The header should be optimized for the Google Adsense ads that are placed in the middle of my site. It should have a centering effect on the visitors eyes so that I get more clicks.

    *I will choose 2 potential winners at first. I will run both headers for 3 days, and the one that yields the highest CTR, will be the winner! It DOES NOT have to look the best, I want the one that will boost my CTR!

    A few articles with images to consider including in the header (please don't use the images in the sidebar under 'Fancy Tuning Picks'):

    http://fancytuning.com/2008/03/the-red-devil-r8-strikes/
    http://fancytuning.com/2009/09/hamann-ferrari-california/
    http://fancytuning.com/2009/08/vorsteiner-gts3-bmw-e9290-m3/
    http://fancytuning.com/2008/12/hamann-aston-martin-vantage/
    http://fancytuning.com/2009/04/g-power-bmw-m6-hurricane-cs/
    http://fancytuning.com/2009/11/onyx-range-rover-vogue/
    http://fancytuning.com/2009/11/app-nissan-370z/
    http://fancytuning.com/2009/03/mansory-bugatti-veyron-linea-vincero/
    http://fancytuning.com/2009/08/gemballa-porsche-carrera-gt-mirage-gt-gold-edition/

    Be creative, the header doesn't have to be the exact same size as the current one, heck, maybe a thinner or larger banner will get more clicks.

    The 2 potential winners will be chosen in one week - 11/26/09 - 8pm Eastern US Time - Thanksgiving. $40 Paypal will be sent to the winner.

    I will answer and questions, and provide feedback as soon as I can.

    Thanks, Greg

    *A blue and black color scheme for the Fancy Tuning logo would work best.(sorry I didn't mention that) The adsense link color I'm using is a darker blue - #000099.

    *I like the style font that jtoms used...

    *Don't worry about making it animated, I will most likely choose the non-animated headers.

    *I'm thinking the smaller the better, try to keep it around the same size header I have right now.

    @warsawtech - I like that font a little better, but I really like the font that jtoms used. Your centered look is probably the best for adsense out of the ones I've received so far. thanks

    @kazimn - very nice, I'm little distracted by the circles in the background tho, maybe the font could be larger? or maybe try it without those circles?

    @jtoms - great logo, that is exactly what I had in mind, and don't worry about the GTR, I was almost going to put it in the list actually, but didn't think the matte black would turn out well. It does look good tho, nice job

    @sunnykdr - not feeling that font for fancy tuning. however the line between fancy tuning and the latest car tuning news is perfect when having adsense optimization in mind, because that is what the link ads look like. also not feeling the random dots, nor the car since it is a concept car, please use a car from the list if you'd like to re-submit.

    Thanks guys

    I was gonna incorperate something into where the grilles were suppose to be, but if you want it back to the mesh, or have any ideas as to what you would want in the grilles, I can do that for you.

    Feedback if possible!

    *I've decided I'd like the header to have a maximum height of 150px...that way both the Adsense leaderboard and rectangle will be visible w/o scrolling.

    *Blue, black, white color scheme for the logo will work best...

    @jtoms - you almost nailed it on the head with that last one, any way you can have a white shadow effect or something to make the logo stand out more? it sort of blends with the blue car a little too much. Also, the middle one with the blue Tuning is great, but can you switch that neon blue MSD ignition gauge with the red one below it? I think that would look better.

    @bezzina - I'd like the headers to have a maximum height of 150px, if you could maybe adjust it, I do like the car manufacturers listing in the background tho

    @kazimn - much better, I really like that one, but can you remove the car behind fancy tuning, it would clean it up I think

    @dr.viper - sorry, im not feeling that look

    @sunnydkr - nice design but I'm not liking the wavy type font, I'd like some more solid/block-ish/bold like jtoms has done
