How smashley started their banner ad journey

Summary

The purpose of this contest is to seek out a web-advertising design guru who we can work with on a regular basis to design ads, buttons and other page elements, to augment the growing success of WorldTV.com. The specific contest is for a leaderboard ad developed in Flash or Animated GIF.

Company name

WorldTV.com

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

Unlike previous contests we have run on Sitepoint or elsewhere on eLance for example we do not wish to give much of a brief for this. It's all about creativity and self-starting here, we're looking for someone who can develop their own persuasive idea and concept, including ad copy to boot.

So with that in mind, here goes.. one very (brief) brief.

1. Take a look at WorldTV.com - be sure to create your own channel (it takes 2 mins), and be sure to look at our 'regular site pages' - News, About Us, etc to see the look and feel we use for those.

2. Think about the most compelling angle for a leaderboard ad that would promote this site to a general OR specific audience. If you have a specific audience in mind, let us know what that is (unless its obvious from the ad itself). Naturally we can target ads through the various ad networks to specific websites or demographics. We plan to build a wide range of different ads - general and niche, so we really have no preference here.

3. Produce said leaderboard ad in Flash or Animated Gif.

Feel free to use screenshots from the site if you wish, you can find vector versions of our logo at http://worldtv.com/99designs

The publishers of WorldTV (Smashing Concepts) run over 50 sites with a wide range of properties, so it is worth entering and taking time over this as even if you don't win the contest, we may contact you for other work if we like what you do.

Here are samples of feedback we've received on eLance (username 'smashingstuff')...

"Great to work
