[] Skin Design Contest

Polecane posty

We are happy to announce our first skin design contest!

With the upcoming release of Invision Power Board 3.0 we want to give all of the great skin designers in our community a chance to leave a permanent mark on IP.Board. This is your chance to design a skin that will be available to all users of IP.Board right along with the download of the software in the client area.

Our goal with this skin is to create another default skin option for clients to use as the base of their skin design projects. One key point to keep in mind is that we specifically do not want a simple redesign of the current default IP.Board 3.0.0 skin. While you can feel free to use our default skin as a starting point, we want this new skin to be its own work. Feel free to change HTML, CSS, images, javascript usage, etc. as you see fit within the goals of the project.

Skin Design Goals

  • The new skin should be streamlined, light weight, and efficient as possible. The best way to go about this is to start with as little javascript and CSS as you can and add only as appropriate.

  • Keep web standards in mind and cross-browser/cross-platform compatibility.

  • While designing your skin keep novice skinners in mind. It should be very easy to change your default header, colors, etc. even for a novice with little to no knowledge of CSS and HTML's more advanced properties.

  • Must include all functionality of IPB3 but feel free to present those functions in any way you see fit.

In summary, we are after a very professional skin with a nice, clean look and feel. Less is more approach in both the complexity of the design and the complexity of the HTML/CSS/JS is the key to keep in mind. Find a friend with minimal design experience and ask them if they are able to edit the look and feel. If they can you're on the right track!

Choosing Winners

We have created a special Gallery category on our company forums for submissions. Just create an album in that category with screen shots of your skin design. The more the better to give everyone a good look at your work. The IPS customer community will then be able to vote on the skins they like best. Submissions to the gallery can start at any time (and be updated as you go) but must be uploaded by June 1, 2009. Customers will not be able to vote until after the June 1 deadline to keep the process fair for all.

The IPS customer community will be allowed to vote for one week and the top 10 skins will be reviewed by IPS staff and management. You will be asked to allow us to review an export of the skin to see your code quality so keep in mind don't just go for looks: the underlying quality of code is important too! We may also wish to ask you questions on your vision, approach, and ideas for improvement.

The final choice will be made based on how well the designer has met the design goals specified here.


Prizes will be awarded as cash with third place receiving $150.00 and second place $250.00.

First place will receive $2,000.00 and their skin will be featured along with IP.Board as an alternate skin choice!

We hope all the talented skin designers in the community will participate. Even if you are not chosen as the winner, all skins will have the opportunity for exposure and promotion during the contest. We look forward to seeing your great work!
