Hey all,

I'm not all that happy with the graphic we have on the front page of the wikibase, so I wanted to ask if anyone would be willing to give a go at creating another one. If I end up picking the one you make, I have a premium coupon for you to use, good for one month free premium. The only restriction I have is that it should stick to 360px wide (browser compatibility issues) and I guess maybe stick to less than 175px tall.

The ZAM logo:

Is this the image you want replaced?

What all needs to appear on the logo? I assume you want the words "ZAM," "Wikibase," and "Final Fanatasy XIV" (or FFXIV) on it? Do you want actual ZAM logo or is just the text in some form acceptable?

I actually believe the existing one is fairly good, but who am I to pass up a chance at free premium?

I think that's probably the one. It's really the only graphic there, and it is even 360px wide to boot.

Yeah, I edited the OP to give the logo graphic, but it should say ZAM Wikibase. If you feel there are other words that would make it sound/look good, then I leave that up to you. I recommend all PSDs be saved though, in case we like it, but request a small tweak.

The First Attempt
Example

Larger "ZAM" Logo

p.s. I officially hate this hairstyle as it is absolutely no fun to cut out. I may actually have a vendetta against anyone who chooses this hairstyle in game ._.

I really like this Bardalicious, but do you think you could move the Wikibase text so that it's not over the ZAM logo? I'd like to see what it looks like with that change. Thanks!

Edit 1 looks good, but the XIV logo looks squished down. Did you alter it's height?

Thanks to Bardalicious for his image. Just so you guys know, I am still open to awarding premium trials for additional graphics as I think it would be good to alternate the front image from time to time. Thank you for the other entries so far!

My photoshop skills are nil, but I really like the idea of one using the actual game logo...

Of course, there will also be more graphics available closer to release. Maybe we could do this again then?

And lol @ your avatar Pikko.

Are you going to be the gardening mistress of FFXIV as well (assuming they have it)?

Maybe you can actually have full gardens on plots of land. O.o;; That would be fun (<<<<likes gardening but hates manual labor).
