Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The target audience for these banner ads are Java developers who make purchasing decisions for their product line. They are technically proficient and spend a lot of time in front of a computer. Therefore, the ads should not be be flashy, gaudy, or contain loud/bright/florescent colors. It should not hurt your eyes, and should leave plenty of "whitespace".
These guys will quickly tune out ads that look offensive in their design, especially ads that look less than professional. This ad should resemble something that Oracle would put out.
I need two PNG ad banners with dimensions of 728x90 and 220x250 pixels. Both ads should be identical in content and overall design (obviously the layout will have to differ a bit).
Ads should contain the following phrases:
1) "Your code on your terms"
2) "Java(tm) powered license management"
Capitalization is left to you to decide.
The product name is officially "Padlock License Manager for Java", and either that or "Padlock License Manager" should be clearly readable on the ads along with the Padlock logo (see attachments).
