    G&T 61 Banner Project. :-)

    Yes, as it will be known. I may alter the thread title to fit purpose…

    One of the main reasons I haven’t started putting these together, is that the site is currently undergoing a re-design and the header sizes are/could/probably will be changing, so it’s not worth making anything that is final when I may have to rejig the things to fit the new styles of header.

    Now you know…

    Will the new banners be filmed at Shepperton? Also, CGI or Models?

    #113954

    A mixture of the two. Also our banners will be shown in front of an audience. Tickets available soon.

    Will the banners be available outside of the UK?

    I’m skeptical. The banners have been crap since the co-banner-creator left in 1993.

    Can we expect the original banners to be remastered?

    No. Wrong answer ;-)

    I love you Danny. Almost as much as I love Cappsy and that’s a motherload of milky manlove, but remastered *gulp*

    you may have noticed that there is a new logo on the christmas banners. What i mean by remastered isthat i intend to update the old banners with the new logo.

    I don’t know what reminded me of this old thread but I wondered if this is still going to happen?

    #126255

    Yes, it is. There is a certain anniversary of a certain show coming up, so we’re hoping to release them around then. Seems fitting as a celebration of Dwarf in general.

    It’s on going though.

    Are we keeping all of the current ones though? Or should I be downloading some of my faves now in case they go into retirement?

    Love the idea but hope these won’t be the only banners on rotation.

    I’d love to see some of the better fan-art featured up there for example.

    I wonder if we should display all the banners of note in a tucked away section of the site like the Google Doodles…

    That’s actually a cracking idea.

    I thought it would have been really self indulgent for me to do this, but then I realised I’m not responsible for all the ideas of the banners.
    Some are going to be more relevant to certain eras and will go ‘out of date’ like the BTE paparazzi shot stuff, that kind of thing. SO it’d be nice to have somwehere for them to go, and it’s an interesting timeline of G&T’s past.

    Because the site’s being redesigned, the banner style is going to shift slightly too, and because i’m an idiot I didn’t make the banners in any larger resolution than what we have, so I’d have to make them all again in theory. So the style and possibly the logo may change, still working on that.

    In short the 55 (61) Banner project will happen, eventually

    I think it’d be a shame for the G&T font to change. There’s something comfortably familiar about it.
    Having said that, though, I guess it’d be the same as looking at those headers with the old G&T logos. Change is inevitable.
    I think it’s kind of odd that G&T have never had the elipse as part of the logo. For an RD site, I don’t know whether that’s something to be applauded, or just stupidity. ;)

    I think this sums up the site as a whole quite well!

    “Something to be applauded, or just stupidity.” One for the recommendations. ;)

    The logo transition from 2D to 3D was basically me getting giddy with 3DSMax. I also did it to make me think more about design and colour schemes and things like that, adding a dimension makes it easier for things to look ‘out of place’? I like to push myself.

    The vectored 3D logo I did for BTL was supposed to look like the 80’s Computer and Video Games logo, but literally nobody picked up on that which I was mildly gutted about haha

    In fairness it needs to be longer. MORE SUGGESTIONS PLEASE. Either Series Specific or episode specific things that you reckon are indicative of said Series or episode.

    Oooh, that’s one of mine! I used to do them before Danny started working his magic. That’s one of my favourites I did too.

    Amazing that I’ve been here a year and a half and never saw that one until today. Do you recall any urls of your other ones?

    There are a tonne from that era that were all excellent. I need to include more, especially since the logo is what the current one is entirely based on.

    So, approaching 73 episodes (and bumping up this thread up a few notches), I’ve seen the series XI headers this week, and I expect we’ll see more in the next couple of months, and series XII next year. How many banners do you actually have now?

    #214425
    Ian Symes

    Oooh, about 140. There will indeed be more to come.

    I’d completely forgotten about this little project. As it happens, I think we do now have at least one for each episode, quite by accident. I had a slightly crazy afternoon a while back when I made an absolute shitload of them, and for that I used all the screengrabs I took for the Complete Guide, along with whatever other Dwarf-related pics I had on my hard drive from whatever articles I’ve written on this particular laptop.

    I’ve been looking over the past couple of days. I’ve found 136. And I know there’s at least one more.

    Ah, so that’s what those previously inexplicable spikes in our stats were – Bromley hitting F5 for an hour at a time.

    An hour at a time? I can spend about twenty minutes seeing where Random takes me. Agonising over whether to leave a comment and bump a six year old article up.
