    Default TBCS Design Challenge!!! Rating Widget

    We are looking for a new "Rating Widget" to provide manufactures to place on their site of products we have reviewed. You can click here and look at other sites "Rating Widgets" NZXT has displayed. I do not have a prize to offer yet but I promise that the winning design will get something nice and you will also get a medal for a design challenge win on your profile and +rep from at least 5 staff members.

    So here are my requirements.

    • Size. Must be a square of 100px X 100px
    • Must have "TBCS" or the official TBCS logo in it somewhere.
    • Must have the words "Approved" or "Recommended" somewhere in it
    • Graphics can be anything you can think up or design.
    • If in GIMP or Photoshop you must save the full PSD or Design file with layers so we can easily change it as needed.


    Have fun and we are looking forward to all your entries.

    Also, do you want the rating included in it? (IE the 5/5 or 4/5 etc ?)

    Yea just post a jpg, png or gif in this thread and You can do one of each of the following if you would like. We will select the ones we like and get the design file from you then.

    TBCS Approved [one with out a rating, one of each with a 3 star, 4 star, and 5 star rating]
    TBCS Recommended [one with out a rating, one of each with a 3 star, 4 star, and 5 star rating]

    You can get creative too. Maybe something like TBCS Gold Award or Silver Award or even a Platinum Award.

    We just need something that will represent the site well and look good at the same time. I designed our current rating stamp but once manufacturers shrink it down it looses the stamp feel. The design this challenge is about is just for them to place on their sites.

    Have fun.

    I freely admit there isn't a lot of originality or design in these - they're very very heavily based on existing site graphics, but I figure that means that 1, they're truly representative of the site, and 2, they'll fit in perfectly with the current site....

    Here is an idea that needs someone who is better at Photoshop or Gimp:


    Put the stars along the top and the approved, recommended, or reviewed messages along the bottom of the TBCS logo. I'm not really good enough with Photoshop elements or Gimp to make this really look nice at the 100 pixel scale, but I thought the idea was good enough to share with you guys.

    Here's one I'm working on. I'm afraid it's a bit too busy, but it has everything it needs to.
