Kevin Aylward bestowed upon me the honor and the pleasure of designing a new graphic for the 2007 Weblog Awards
. After diligent effort, I humbly present to you the fruits of this august commission:
Below, I have several versions of this graphic for bloggers hither and yon to use in their posts and links to the Weblog Awards site. If you require a size or format that is not posted here, please feel free to shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) informing me of your requirements, and I can probably oblige you.
Some notes about the design: the icon is an image of the sort known as a "cognitive illusion," a picture that can represent two different subjects, depending on the viewer's inferences. Looked at one way, it is a picture of an award plaque bearing a gold ribbon. Looked at another way, it's a picture of a person in front of a computer monitor which is displaying some text. Yes, yes, it is terribly clever. Avail yourself of the comment form below to let me know your opinion of this graphic. (Don't worry about hurting my feelings, I'm not as vain as you might suppose.)
I am providing this graphic in two different versions, a "horizontal" and a "stacked" version. The "horizontal" graphic has all the type on one line. The "stacked" version has it on three lines. Use whichever version suits your own taste. Each one comes in a width of 500 pixels, 320 pixels, 200 pixels, or 150 pixels. There is also a horizontal 88x21 pixel button.
To use any of these images, please copy it and upload it to your own Web server, or you can source these files directly. And then, please code it to link to http://2007.weblogawards.org/
If you have any problems or questions about how to do that, please email me at email@example.com and I will gladly help you.Here are the "stacked" versions of the graphic:
