Puttin' on the Ritz (Avs and Sigs)

Recommended Posts

  Part of getting into the swing of Gryfftoberfest is brightening up the Common Room (and, let’s be honest, showing off a bit). Design yourself a celebratory signature and or avatar to flaunt for the month.


  They can depict anything you like providing they’re bright, bold and Gryfftoberfest-y. Of course, they’ll also need to be HOL appropriate and follow our size rules: 100 x 100 pixels for avs and 250 wide x 100 high for sigs. You don’t have to use them but it’s more fun if you do. Get your Gryff on!


  Post them below before 11.59 PM HOL-time on 31st October and you’ll earn 20 beans for each with an extra 10 for the signature if you include this year’s Motto ‘Roaring With Pride’ (by Vanessa Tilley).

The avatar features a rough-edged, diamond-shaped icon of a stylised lion head with a scarlet mane placed on a golden background. In the bottom left corner, the word "Gryfftober" is written in white down and across, making it L shaped. Inline with that on the right-hand side is the year "2018". There is also a very thin, light border around the edges.







The signature shows the same background as the avatar with the lion icon placed on the left-hand side. White caption that says "Roar with Pride" is placed on the right. The "Roar" is in a cursive font, appearing to be standing on top of the uppercase printed word "Pride".

Graphic is 250x100 - cropped from illustration, Nightfall, by Lori Preusch.

Description: It shows a young girl, in a white collared dress, supine on a carpeted floor, with her head to the left of the graphic and her body reclined to the right. She is partially covered with a blanket. There are stacks of books nearby. A candle burns in a candle holder, off to her side.  Her head is pillowed on the right front leg of a lioness (and a regular pillow). Her face is partially obscured by a hat. The lioness's jaw appears to be resting on the torso of the young girl. Both of them have their eyes closed. Peaceful. Dozing. There is an inset dark crimson, very narrow 'border'. Words in the same dark crimson (backlight by a pale grey) show in the upper right corner "Gryfftoberfest 2018".
