/ LYON EQUIPMENT BANNER COMPETITION: Caroline McCann
Full details of this competition here: http://www.ukclimbing.com/articles/page.php?id=899
I'm a graphic designer as well as having a fondness for fondling all things shiny. With these two afflictions I figured I'd be mad not to enter. C-:

Constructive criticism and praise is welcomed.
Very nice. particularly like #4. My one minor niggle is the over-use of drop shadow, but other than that, very good.
also i thought that the solutuion looked a bit like a whale or sumthin from the front! very sneaky!
Very good indeed. It's good to see that someone has actually read the brief, especially the last sentence:
Your brief is to design FOUR graphic adverts (sizes below) for any products from either Sportiva, Beal or Petzl. The products can be all from one company or a mix of products from all three companies.
The graphic adverts are to be product adverts, extolling the virtue of the particular products that you choose.
I hope this will be taken into account by the judges.
Drop shadows etc.... yeah, you love 'em or hate 'em, eh? In this case I just wanted to give them a bit of depth as they looked a bit flat - it's all subjective though, isn't it?
Cheers for the bit about sticking to the brief, Franklin. There were so many things I could have done for this competition but the brief was pretty specific so played it safe. The only tenuous one is the Solution ad, but I liked the play on words so kept it!
Good luck to everyone else, some nice entries.
Mick - when are the results are due? Have we seen all the entries now?
