View Full Version : The KAAOS Banner

We need a banner for kaaos.com and I'd rather not half ass it myself. So, like the sig thread, lets see what you guys can come up with. it can be as wide as you wish but remember that the brunt of it needs to be seen on atleast 800x600 and at most probl 1200xwhatever. Height should be around 150 to 200px. It MUST incorporate the kaaos skull and of course KAAOS. Yes you can resize the skull as long as its conspicuous.

You know I am surprised no one has stolen that skull off our website and used it on their own after all these years.

Yeah, turn the K around please. Let's see the other new skull in the smaller version, those are currently way too large.

Rann

Xenonix, http://www.kaaos.com/ss2.php

Thats how it looks, the smaller version. Fix the K, try the new skull. Also, crop the image where the white lines are you can see how i did it on that page or http://www.kaaos.com/images/banner.jpg

EDIT: The shit is nice btw and will likely be what we use ;p

The print is too small - takes up too little of the total banner.

And no backward letters. Give you fucks one inch and you'll d00dify it all to hell. ;p

Here are the two smaller versions.
Cropped @ white lines.
Do you want me to pad some black on the left-hand side to have it align with your left-hand side table/menu? Or will you do it via code?

The 'smaller text' in the logo is intentional.. <insert design jargon here> it's a more modern style of design and it uses the negative space around it to round off the look.. looks balanced. <end design jargon> If you want me to enlarge the text.. I will.. let me know.

old skull we all know and love:

tagline.. do we have a tagline fitting for KAAOS hanging around? one on this image is placeholder.

Rann
04-06-2004, 06:22 PM
Im sure hedron or tyo can give us a tagline.

The new ones look good but problem is the skull keeps it from slamming snug against the rest of the site.

http://www.kaaos.com/gallery.php

vs

http://www.kaaos.com/ss2.php

See what i mean? The middle one looks cool btw ;p

XENONIX
04-06-2004, 06:48 PM
I kind of like the 'floating' KAAOS skull above the site. The menus/sections don't exactly touch each other either.. they have some padding in them too.. I don't see it as being ugly or detached.. What do the rest of you think?

I shrunk the KAAOS skull so it fit within the red borders.. and it looked dumb. (now, cutting off the very top/bottom of the skull looks good- as in the last image above) Having the skull protrude from the top/bottom making it 'float' gives the KAAOS skull dominance. (yes the whole upper red bar is floating from the site below.. but looks good imho)

Rann

Biral
04-06-2004, 07:07 PM
Getting the lines in the silver one to go through the skull's mouth and eyes would make it look incredible btw. Maybe having the skull light up, but with a red background or something. Just a suggestion.

Maybe its just me, looks to bright.

And stop with the NEW skulls already. They are gay as fuck!

Rann
04-06-2004, 07:09 PM
Maybe we can have it flash in big pink letters "Birals a big faggot"... or not.


http://www.kaaos.com/ss2.php

This is what im gonna go with once we get a tagline for it.

Rann

So, like the sig thread, lets see what you guys can come up with.

Posted by Rann, quoted for posterity. You wanted suggestions, you got em. nothing more to it.

Duvii
04-06-2004, 07:44 PM
The banner looks good, (that's up there now, http://www.kaaos.com/images/banner2.jpg), however...
I think it's a little bright for the rest of the page's scheme. And it looks strange to me, to see the skull coming out of a brighter color like that. I always thought the idea was that it's coming out of the shadows.

Plus, the orientation of having it to the left is strange, and that the color doesn't continue across the page when maximized under a higher resolution brings it to an ubrupt and painful halt.

Anyway, just my thoughts.

Tyo
04-06-2004, 07:46 PM
Xeno-

Can you take the one that Rann has become infatuated with and make it more red. It looks great as is, but it crosses the boundary of the traditional color scheme. I'm thinking a blend between the top image you posted and the fourth down.

Any other submissions?

XENONIX
04-06-2004, 07:55 PM
Tyo: Yeah, I'll drum up a new comp which will be more red. I'll post the image tomorrow morning.

Duvii brings out a valid point (left hand justification of image and the fact that the image is not going across the entire top-portion of the screen at higher resolutions)

This is fixable by putting a table that goes 100% across the width of the page, then putting the banner graphic "center" justified, and then apply another graphical background to that table cell. Whichever final banner image we pick, I can go in and design a background that is tile-able and will make the banner 'float' over it. I can code this if you don't have time, rann.

This brings up the question: will post nuke (i'm assuming that what you're using) allow you to code in a table up there? I'm not familiar with postnuke.

Also, mIRC is spelled with an "L" on the "download mLirc" link on the right.

Hedron
04-06-2004, 07:56 PM
Let's take that orange banner and have it fade to a solid color on either end so that we can make it stretch to fit larger resolutions, or just constrain the site so that it doesn't stretch so wide. Give it a max.

I tend to agree that having the skull come out of black always makes it look best. Is there a way to incorpate some color like it is now, but mix it in with black so that the skull can rise from black?

Tagline line ideas:

"Fuck You."


"Suffer the fire to forge a god."

"Now with 50% more evil since Riprend quit."

"Only one rule. Our rule."

Rann
04-06-2004, 08:01 PM
Not post nuke, im gonna center, i was just testing a div to get the earlier banners flat against the browser. whatever we go with will go in a table

Joker
04-06-2004, 08:02 PM
Of course, Rann picked the absolute WORST one of all. ;p

It's way too bright and the right side of the skull needs to be in shadow or it looks like that banner.... shit.

Rann
04-06-2004, 08:02 PM
And there it is..

"Only one rule. Our rule."

Speaking as a Marketing Guy - If you don't have a tag line after 12 years... you don't need one. Although, I think the "since '92" is an important message which could be worked into the banner somehow. The impact of "we've been here for 12 years and we'll be here long after your gone" is an important concideration, although I'll leave it to the guys who actually have BEEN here to come up with the catchy jingle.

"Fuck You"
since '92

rings a bell though :)


I always though "Wheeeee!" was the guild motto but unfortunatly, out of context, it's meaningless.

Taglines:

If KAAOS is not evil, then evil has no meaning.

KAAOS - When its done right it looks like this.

KAAOS - Death is no threat to the suicidal.

KAAOS - Never convicted.

KAAOS - Sanity optional.

KAAOS - Slow-Roasted Evil.

KAAOS - Wake up and smell the evil.

KAAOS - These are not the gods you are looking for.

I didn't have any inspirations but here's a few suggestions, maybe they will inspire one of you idiots...

Owning your soul since '92

Rise to challenge your gods and in return we will give you that which you secretly crave - the flesh-slashing, blood-pounding, bone-crushing weapons of KAAOS, and the fiery burning of our power. (yes, stolen from a Hedron post ;p)

Death never felt so twisted

If you are close enough to read this we already own your soul

The only thing you have to fear... is KAAOS itself

Surprise, your dead

KAAOS- Go ahead....Join us...we could use another virgin to sacrafice.

KAAOS- And you thought Lucifer thought of hell al by himself.

KAAOS- Marry wasn't a virgin. (lol)

KAAOS- Ten Million Deaths and counting.

KAAOS- Slaying people since you were in diapers bitch.

KAAOS- War, Death, Destruction......all in a days work.

KAAOS- Please......don't judge us by Corkorle...

KAAOS- We spawn killed Death........

Therefore, since my four word taglines have cut down our prominent members like they were sticks of butter, I will be retroactively deleting my posts on this thread in order to put an end to the crying.

Yeah, well, guess what? I'm embarassed by whining pussies like yourself. Awww. Someone said you like cock. Waaaah. Go cry to your fucking mother, you limp dicked piece of shit. If bitches take offense to what I would call "idle banter among friends," then you and them are gimps with the mettle of a second trimester fetus. Plain and simple.

For all the stupid drivel that I read every day coming from the mouths of retards like you, it's amazing that I can still make light of you worthless fucks. Unfortunately, now people cry more than in the past. Sad, yet, at the same time... funny.

Likewise, I don't give a fuck how hard you pretend to be. It pains me to listen to those who slob the knob every day and try and fit in and act all tough and badass. September? Shit. Don't make me laugh. You're still a KGFS. In fact, You're a cookie cutter KGFS. And, still, even worse off, you're a PLANETSIDE KGFS, which puts you about 20 cock lengths below a normal skanky wanna-be on the totem pole of KGFSness.

So, basically, what I'm trying to say is that you are the equivalent of a cup full of my jism. Now get back on your knees, grab your little barbie doll, and crawl back to kickball land before you start crying again.

For whomever archives KAAOS graphics/logos/etc:

Here is a .ZIP compressed file which contains: 1 Layered Photoshop 7.0 File of the Final Banner I posted, a few font-families, and basically .jpeg or .png files of all the other 'non-approved' banners I posted here.

lol...I dont think you are getting the point. You seem to have got your panties in a bunch because you THINK that your insults and banter got under someones skin when in fact it was just so fucking stupid that people didn't want to be accidentally associated with it as something we all agreed upon to have put on the banner.

We really don't give a fuck what people think, We just don't usually try to make it a point to impress upon them that we are complete fucking idiots. You are accusing everyone of crying but the only pussy beeding around here is yours. Nobody thought your taglines were funny or cutting or even clever and that pisses you off.


It pains me to see an old god so long in the tooth that "Someone said you like cock" is the sum total of your argument. Did that work for you back in the old days?

You don't like the new blood? Kick me the fuck out or live with it cuz I aint being demoted to jack shit.
