NANY 2009: The Challenge Graphic
« on: December 20, 2008, 12:00:04 AM »
The graphic that will be put on all the Mugs (and other Rewards) has just been released!

Thanks to nudone we have a fantastic and unique image for this year's Challenge.

I love that image! It has been my PC wallpaper (on one of my monitors) since February.

Yeah i suggested to Nudone that it would be so nice to use that image for the basis of the NANY mug, since it was so damn good.
He might be willing to make some changes if people suggest, especially in the text.

Wow, nice!

Side note: I'm using virtual desktop software and have it configured to show a different DC background image per virtual screen ;)

Does that mean that the words are going to be hidden behind the handle?

Wonderful, as always :)

Text should probably be repositioned though, to avoid being hidden behind the handle?

text isnt behind handle, but close. maybe centering it would be better.  depends if you want people to see text clearly or enjoy the ocean view.

I think what has to be remembered is that this is a graphic that hasn't be done specifically for a mug (is that right?).

Does the image wrap around so that the left and right edge join under the handle? Right-handed people will see "NANY 2009", Left-handed people will see "DonationCoder.com" as they are drinking  :D

For mugs, the best placement for a message you want the drinker to see is on the left and/or right side (if the handle is the back). Maybe we need left/right handled mugs?  :-\

mouser has asked the critical question: is the text the important bit? If it's not, maybe even rotating it through 90 degrees would help centre it on the side of the mug?

In my opinion, the image is the most important part, but it seems like a waste to even include text if you can't read it.

if people prefer we could still use the previous nany image and update it to say 2009:

both images are very cool.

What would be really cool is if that image had recursion. If Cody's mug had that graphic on it. That would be totally geeky. :-D

 :Thmbsup: Nice: I think that answers most of the questions (nudone if very patient!)

And I really like how everyone is headed to the NANY Challenge and that the NANY 2009 is the new star rising!!

Is it just me, or is Cody cheerfully looking in the wrong direction while the island is right under his nose?  :P

maybe Cody already got the 2009 treasure, and he's headed off for 2010  :huh:

I already answered that question here:

And I like the updated image! :Thmbsup:

I am wondering how this would look on the zip hoodie.

the zip hoodie no doubt wants an image of different aspect ratio; maybe for that it would be best to use one side of the previous mug design (cody sleeping at desk or cody coding), or else a cropped version of the naval seen focusing on the center image of cody.
