Site Reopening | September 29, 2012

What's New?
⇒ [Challenges] : Tired of making story posters? Our challenges will help you think out of the box and let your creative juices flow through these three (3) specific prompts that will be included in each round: Book Cover, Movie Poster, Advertisement.
⇒ [Resources] : Free downloadable resources like textures, pngs, tutorials and more!
⇒ [Staff] : Yes, JMC is now on the lookout for fellow designers who are willing to be a part of her team. Apply now!

After a whole month of waiting, we finally moved out of Webs and got our own host. Now, Marrione is reopening our main site with a whole new layout, still featuring JMC's favorite K-pop band, CNBlue. We would like to sincerely thank everyone for their continuous support and are proud to announce that in just a span of 30 days, we received 50+ poster requests. It may not be much but that's a better range than when the site first opened wherein we got a total of 62 for 8 months, excluding banner/icon/wallpaper requests. Considering this rapid increase of requests, we decided to put up an application for talented graphic designers who are interested to join our team. If you think you are qualified and can reach our standards then feel free to check out our staff page for more details.

Along with that, we also have major changes in our system and a few concerns about the forms we are receiving. So to everyone who requests from us and those who haven't yet but are planning to, please take note of the following:

  • All requests should now go through the main site. Our AFF thread, which can be found HERE, will only serve as a mere pickup/gallery page. This way, things will be more organized and easier to keep track of.
  • We are closing background requests for the meantime. Why? Because requesters don't use it. It's a total waste of time and effort. But we might open them again in the future, who knows? :)
  • Please don't forget to read the rules before requesting. I've been letting some pass but we do require a password, which is hidden somewhere in one of the bullets, for your request to be accepted. It will help us know that you read and understand everything. If not, just any sign or proof that you read them will do.
  • Picture URLs are a must in your forms. We need you to provide them not just to be used on the poster itself but to also make sure that we'll have the right person in case we need to use our own images but don't know your characters.
  • For those who are asking the difference between theme and mood: 'Theme' is the topic or concept of your story, (e.g. neighbors from another dimension, best friends turned into lovers) while the 'Mood' is the atmosphere or emotional tone of your story (e.g angst, romance, happy, sad, etc.)
  • Once we already have other designers around, we'll be more strict with accepting requests so as not to confuse them. Requests that have certain 'mistakes' in them will be kept in the pending list until these issues are resolved.

So, that's it! We hope you request a lot from us and give us more love! Affiliation requests are open. Just leave us a message on the tagbox and we'll link you right away. :) Thanks everyone and have a nice day! :)
