sad why are there so many grammatical errors on nairaland today
Just when I thought my pretty eyes were playing tricks on me,I decided to wear my reading glasses, alas,it remained the same.

I typed "hardworking" on a thread yesterday but I only saw "hard".

Is there a probleme?

Thank you Seun for this opportunity.

Abu Mikey:
How on earth is Yusufu's work better than Egift's undecided

Seun,answer pls sad
The most unfortunate flaw with Egift's submission is the compression. When he was told that his initial submissions were too heavy, he carelessly compressed them down to about 10kb (vs 30kb). This introduced unnecessary compression artefacts that ruined the smooth gradients in all his designs. Anyone designing banner ads for the web should master the art of image compression.

The second flaw is in the area of consistency. His Wizkid Wedding ad is fantastic (well, before compression). His Fashola 2015 ad is quite unique and inspired (though also marred by the compression). But his Covenant University ad is subpar in my opinion. The name of the university he wants us to apply for is too tiny to read. Even the action button which says "Apply Now" is quite tiny. His BBM on Android Ad is also subpar because his phone images are not aesthetically arranged to me. It's as if someone threw a bunch of phones on the floor and took a picture. The lettering for "TECNO mobile" is also fuzzy, and the phrase "think globally, act locally" has no relevance as far as I can tell.

Those are the reasons why he was number 5 and not number 1. The ideal number one is someone that, if you asked him to design 10 ads, you would be sure that at least 9 of them would be fantastic with no serious flaws and the last one would be above average.

I just clicked the "unfollow" button when I saw your post.

Now back to your response smiley

1) His flaw based on compression,all I can say is,that shouldn't have been a major panacea for analyzing his work.
But since you take it as a major flaw,then so be it!!
You've taken a decision already.

2) I agree with your second spotted flaw grin
I didn't know you would notice how two of his works were sup Par, the third sub par and the fourth sub par. grin


Bottomline is »»» I quite agree with your result after the explanation you gave.


Job Well done Seun

If I am to go for a designer, I will choose Lightheart that came 2nd. His 'call to action' is consistent.

No matter how beautiful your advert is, if it does not ask the viewer to do something, it is a waste of space.

Well done to all the designers.

@Seun you may want to let NairaLanders vote for the best adverts in subsequent competitions.

lipsrsealed bro i respect your opinion but clients go for beautiful designs, if your designs aint beautiful then yous write up will be useless. The client tells you what to write on his/her designs, so that doesnt matter..... Yusufu16 made a design for Samsung and Nairabet, so he sure knows what his client want..... He is the winner anytime anyday.

Re: Results Of Dynamic Ad Design Contest by chivision: 8:28pm On Oct 31, 2013
I have been monitoring this contest with keen interest. And I must commend seun and the participants.
Congratulations to you all.
Though I wouldn't want to doubt the impeccability of the judge in selecting the winners, the process of judgement is very unclear to me; and as such, I am highly compelled to highlight few of my reservations.

Yusuf's and lightheart's designs are questionable to me for some reasons:

1. Yusuf design was creative, but we are talking about 318x106 banner ad here, with a very limited space. As such his design would have made more impact as brochure or an offline handbill instead of 318x106 banner ad. His space management was completely subpar.

2. Looking closely at yusuf's Wizkid entry, you would have noticed the poor quality of the Wizkid pix, which is very unbecoming of a graphics champion.

3. A good graphics design must pay close attention to details and requirements. The requirement of Fashola's ad clearly stated "on the platform of ACN." So, how then should the 2nd position be the one without Fashiola's political affiliation, ACN? No name, no logo?

4. One of the criteria for disqualifying egift's entry as you rightly stated was that "the name of the university he wants us to apply for is too tiny to read." So, how then was this same rule was not extended to yusuf's and lightheart's when it's clear that they both omitted the name of the university they supposed to be advertising?

5. If granted, the only entry that should have been less questionable to be at the top was that of Me-n-you and Archmage, but I doubt if both are good politicians lipsrsealed Simple and clear communication is the key to ad best practice, and moreso when the net, where every second count, is involved.

In summary, I believe the judge considered the faceless praise of some of the entries, which is unbecoming.
@Seun: I appreciate your resolution to bring on another contest, but remember, whatsoever is what doing is what doing well. A little compromise, a little waiver, and the purpose is destroyed.

Correct me if I'm wrong.
Thanks

1. I will like to use this opportunity to thank Seun, Nairaland, my fellow contestants and over 36 members who liked my entry.

2. I am also glad that my entry was the first submitted (even before many people articulate what the ad will look like). My entry also became the most liked submission.

3. While am the least on selection, all I want to say is thank you to everyone - It has been a very interesting competition.

4. Finally, I look forward to future events and expect those who did not make it to also do better.
