thanks for the ideas guys.

ps. if you have an issue of Couloir, look at the back in the Guidelines section to see some examples of what other advertisers have done with the space.

I like the pic of BCrider....or this pic...

Image
This one really displays the board AND the air....

Have that in the background with the webstie name....

It would be sweet if we could work "BITCHES" into the ad...like anywhere.

Somthing like...

"Splitboard.com you Bitches"!!!

Seriously,

Less is more....

The most affective ads that we have in that section are the ones the are the least "busy"

A picture of someone riding (with as few colors as possible in the composition) with Splitboard.com overlaid near the top, then 1 line of plain, descriptive elements along the bottom; GEAR, TALK, ADVICE

Something like that

Just a reminder…In order to use a picture you have to make sure you can maintain the rights to print the image.

you could use some sort of illustration depicting a board being split in the middle and someone climbing the mountain in ski mode on one side and someone boarding down on the other. might be effective to have the three illustrations lined up in a diagonal and use the remaining corners for the logo and text.

the thing is you don't have much space, it might be best just to get the logo out there with some descriptive text. the logo does a pretty good job representing the site.

good luck with the process :)

I agree with ben

Given the limited space, it may be best to use the graphic contained in the header or logo or whatever you call it at the top of this page. I think this would be refered to as creating brand recognition...the consistant use of the same ID or logo. Just make sure the color pops a little better.

While it doesn't directly say "Hey!!! Buy a splitboard" it will direct those interested to the site. That will lead to happier advertisers....which should lead to a happier BCR

White text, black background:

"Because snowshoes suck.

Splitboard.com"

If you want a photo, maybe faded peaks or some other lifestyle photo with the same text.

:D

The above would have to be reduced by about 40%. Can you get more space?
