Hi GAF members and designers,
You will need to provide a mock up to win this project. See my feedback - I will pay for the one that I prefer best so put your best attempt forward.
I need to maximise the opportunity for advertising:
The webmaster of www dot irishguidelive dot com has agreed for me to put a tiny animated gif either side of my new text link ("Diamond Engagement Ring") to appear in the 'Hot Links' section of the home page. This has the potential to attract many people to the link. It has to be small enough to be unobtrusive but cool enough to attract the click. It is also very important that it is not too big to make the html line bigger - i.e. it should not increase the size of the text line.
I have several ideas how this could be done:
1. I have the attached sample which I may or may not use. I think that you could do better!
2. Another idea is to use the top surface of a diamond and have this rotating. It would be like looking down on a diamond that is spinning. This might be a better use of the available space.
3. Shooting star - there could be a shooting star or comet type gif with the tail of the shooting star followed by a diamond flash at the end.
4. Rolling diamond. The diamond could roll from side to side, for example, a distance of 5 mm. This would certainly be eye catching. The end of the gif could even write '.ie' in pink beside the diamond when it is far right.
You are not constrained to these ideas so use your creativeness to suggest a solution that will achieve the desired result.
One line responses will obviously be ignored - they are such a waste of your time. Let me see what you can do!
