Pinaldave got their new banner ad by running a design contest:
Static Branding Banner for Popular Blog Site
Check out Pinaldave's Banner ad contest…
I am one man army SQL Server (Database) blogger. I have been blogging for over 9 years now and my blog has over 1 million views. The major traffic is from the USA.
What's your vision?
I want to design a blog header. There are few requirements of my blog header and I exactly know what I want and what I do not want. With said that you as a creative master have 100% freedom to build banner as per your creative insight. I am very much flexible and open to experiment. 1) The Banner should be in the format of PNG or JPG (Open Format Welcome). 2) Size 1100 px and height 250 px. 3) Banner MAY use the color which my blog is using (Black and White). However, if you believe any other color will work better - I am extremely alright with it. 4) Please make sure that edge of the banner is easily blending in the background of the header to give full screen effect. Please also tell me that what is the color I should use in the background so banner gives the impression that it is the full screen width. Remember, I can only use one color as a background so edges should be same on both the sides. 5) Banner should have my image and the logo. 6) Remove background from my image and you are allowed play with the color of my T-Shirt (make sure it does not look so artificial). 7) I like my current logo, but due to any reason, you want to redo the logo, please give it your best shot. 8) It is technology and database related site. I want to keep banner clean and simple this time but feel free to make it interesting. 9) I am alright with white background or any other background as long as it matches the black and white theme. 10) No green color, please. 11) You can change logo color as you please. For reference I am including all the earlier banners. The one in blue is the latest banner.
Remember this is not an advertisement banner. It is a static banner for the blog. 1) Read the instruction in the Banner Instruction file. 2) Create a banner 3) Send me banner 4) Put the banner in the mock up so I know how it will look when my new theme goes live. Banner size requirement (PNG, JPG and Open Format) 1) 1100 px vs 250 px (this is flexible if you can't fit your design you can go bit over or bit lesser). 2) Small Banner which I can use as icon 250 px by 250 px 3) Anything else you like. Note: My goal is to create new logo six month down to road and I will replace that logo with current logo so I need open file.

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.
Pinaldave collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
