Design a Mouse Pad For Dream.In.Code

Post icon  Posted 14 September 2009 - 04:24 PM

We're going to be giving away some mouse pads to some people and need a design. We may eventually sell a few of these bad boys if the response is good, but they aren't cheap so we want an awesome design to go with these awesome gaming mouse pads.

We're running the design contest through 99designs, so please check out the design brief, and submit your designs here: http://99designs.com/contests/28399

Cool beans, i know what I'm doing the rest of this week.


edit: says designers 0, does that mean no one's entered yet?

edit 2: I'm working on something and those dimensions seem really really big.

I have an idea. I'll try tonight. It's more like a "range" though... would that be okay, or are you only getting 1 design printed?

I'll only be accepting 1 design from the 99 designs contest. But if you have something kick ass and we don't pick it, we may use it later.

The dimensions are large because it's 200dpi and the mouse pads are about the size of a piece of paper.

I might submit a design if I have time. I agree with KYA, it does seem awfully big. Too big to do in UGA5. Paint would probably work though.

Thanks for confirming the dimensions. Off to the basement! [gimp joke aha]


Ugh, are all of our designs gong to look the same? I just saw the latest entry and that was basically what I had in mind. Back to the drawing board.



bah, had to resubmit, forgot the over 275,000 developers part. lol

I probably should've read the brief first, my idea doesn't apply. :(

I was gonna do some sort of a cheat sheet on a mouse mat. Ah well.
