Dibs on 60 minutes and leino and some joke about a spin cycle. I will refine this idea later.

How about like 60 minutes, close it out, or lock it down?

Here's a preliminary shot. If a non-sponsor wants to test it real quick to make sure it works, I'd appreciate it.



Not as flashy, but sometimes less is more...

I think it could get tough to identify all the players. If we stuck with this, we'd have to find pretty distinguished pictures. I was picturing the 60 Minutes logo, with the question, "60 Minutes?" and then an entirely different picture. Don't know how that would work, or if that would be a plain pain in the ass for you to make.

I'm also not saying that's what it's gotta be. Just trying to refine the idea.

Love it Jules. I think I'd put a question mark after 60 minutes, other than that its perfect.

How about the picture of the player inside the watch, in the circle?

If this is done, I think the flyers logo should be bigger and outside the watch. There are multiple sizes of circles on the watch which might work nice as the center dot on the logo. might have to turn the logo diagonal a bit though. just a thought.

Having the player in the watch might make reading the text difficult, unless it's done more creatively than I imagine it

Not being a pain. That's why it's a draft! These are all good suggestions. I will definitely add a ? after 60 minutes. I'm leery about putting a player inside the watch because of the identifying issues (too small).

Since that can be a concern with this format as well -- it's not a bad idea to have a completely different picture for the second panel. I'll work on that too...

What is the max JPEG dimensions on here anyway...I use fireworks to mock my stuff up and the second panel idea is what I went with for my avy but I want the text to be bigger. I've been away from this stuff since grad school so rather than waste my time I may send you some ideas and have you enhance them b/c you are the Royality of digital design

Haha, thanks...but not quite... I'm pretty much self taught so I still have a lot to learn.

But, the restrictions here are either 125x125 or less than 20kb....if that's what you meant.

Jules, the actual 60 Minutes open takes the stopwatch down when the anchors come on. Maybe take the watch down so you have more room to work with the players.

That looks really nice. I'm curious how some of the other player themes would look, based on how much text they've got.

Umm ... okay. I like the look, Jules, and how you maximize all of the elements. We could always make more "60 Minutes" references:
- "I'd Rather win"
- "It's Safer to keep up the pressure."
- "Don't Stahl on the road to the Cup"
- "No Reasoner to not win it all this year."

Yeah, too far.
