How GannonMedia started their button or icon journey

Summary

We have a cornerstone content piece we need to highlight (along with its sponsor) as well as pointing out an award our magazine received.

This contest has been clarified from an earlier entry.

Company name

The Land Report - LandReport.com

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

The cornerstone of our magazine and Web site is a feature called  'The Land Report 100'. The 100 details the 100 largest landowners in the United States and is the only list of its kind to be published in the last decade. You can see the premiere issue of the magazine and how it displayed The Land Report 100 here: http://mrmagazine.files.wordpress.c…report.jpg

-We need a Land Report 100 logo for specific use on the site and possibly in print materials.

The current 'logo' (which it's really not) can be seen here:

http://www.landreport.com/americas-…andowners/

We also use that 'logo' on our home page to link to that piece of content. We need a new button to put in its place. Using an adaptation of the logo above, please create a button to use on the home page.

The button has to 322px wide, but take some freedom with the height.

The Land Report 100 is sponsored by American Forest Management so the button should also include 'Sponsored by American Forest Management' 

Please when designing the button for The Land Report 100 be sure to take into account the color scheme of our current site.

As an aside, we also have a minor second request.

We  need a badge to tell of an award we received. It's like those gold foil stickers you got in grade school, pointing out that our magazine was named one of the 15 Hottest Launches in the Country for 2007.

Another magazine -Garden and Gun- was named to the same list.

You can see how they promote their award at gardenandgun.com. We'd like something similar but it has to fit into our color scheme at landreport.com. Take some creative license with the site and how we could best integrate the award badge into our header image. This just an addendum to the contest and we dont feel it requires its own contest.

Wants

- Explained above
- Variety is good but please try to keep with an 'earthy' tone for colors or muted reds, blues, purples etc.

Don't want

Something that's way to busy. It should be simple and to the point. Web 2.0 styling isn't necessary, no bubble letters etc. Classic styling.
