Could Jin please design an ad for our Launch Party, along the lines of the text below?

(Jin and the community should feel free to edit the text.)

  • The main ad we need would be an image suitable for pasting into blog posts and emails.

  • Secondarily, it would be nice to have an 8X11.5" PDF for printing out (or emailing for those who can't embed images in their emails).

On June 3, from 2pm to 3pm EDT,J

  • will it be recorded for listening to later? – Menachem May 25 '12 at 1:16
  • @Menachem, Yes; it will be archived. – Isaac Moses May 25 '12 at 1:19
  • Yep I'll work on this. For the web Ad image, do you have a rough estimate on the dimension? (in pixels) – Jin May 25 '12 at 14:29
  • @Jin, Thanks! I guess that of the standard web ad sizes, what I think would work best for this purpose would be either Medium Rectangle (300X250) or Large Rectangle (336X280), but I don't have much experience in web ads, so I defer to your or anyone else's judgement. – Isaac Moses May 25 '12 at 14:34
  • @Jin, I realize that not all of the text I listed above will necessarily fit into these sizes. Like I said, please feel free to edit it down. Please make sure to include the names "Rabbi Gil Student" and either "Hirhurim" or "TorahMusings.com", as these are well-known names to our target audience, and we're hoping that they'll help us bring in people from outside SE. – Isaac Moses May 25 '12 at 14:39

    @Jin, one more note: Starting tonight at sundown will be Sabbath, and that will be followed immediately by a 48-hour (24-hour in Israel) holiday of Shavu'ot. So, most of the most active members of this community will be off of the site from sundown tonight until late Monday night, so don't be surprised if you (are working on the weekend and) happen to ask for feedback during that period and don't get any immediately. – Isaac Moses May 25 '12 at 14:43
  • @Jin ... and I can't get at chat right now, though I'll check in later today. I saw that you pinged me with respect to something about the ad capacity. I've edited in two possible stripped-down texts above, but feel free to edit. – Isaac Moses May 25 '12 at 16:19

    @IsaacMoses thanks for the edit. I think the text works for smaller Ads. I'll be posting various sizes of the Ad designs soon. – Jin May 25 '12 at 20:03

Here are the 729 x 80 px and 220 x 250px versions of the Ad. If there are other sizes you need, please let me know.

Ad 729px

Ad 220px

edit: added 8.5"x11" print version. Please click to view full resolution version. Here's a PDF of it.

    Thanks! They look great. Could you please change the referenced URL to LaunchParty.yodeya.com? That's the landing page for the party itself. – Isaac Moses May 29 '12 at 15:20

    If the text for launchparty.yodeya.com doesn't fit, you can use launch.yodeya.com, which I just assigned – Isaac Moses May 29 '12 at 15:24
  • @IsaacMoses I wonder if we'll even need the URL? The ad banner should already link to the launch party page itself right? For print materials the url is needed. – Jin May 29 '12 at 16:37
  • @Jin, if people paste one of these images into an email or social media, they may not be able to or remember to link it. It will work most robustly if the image itself contains all the information necessary to get right to the party. – Isaac Moses May 29 '12 at 16:41

    @IsaacMoses good point. I have updated the images. – Jin May 29 '12 at 16:45
  • @Jin Thanks for the update! – Isaac Moses May 29 '12 at 16:46

    @IsaacMoses added the 8.5.x11 print version. – Jin May 30 '12 at 15:59
  • @Jin Yet you seem to still be planning on posting it shortly... – Double AA May 30 '12 at 19:39
  • @DoubleAA ha I forgot to edit it out. Edited. – Jin May 30 '12 at 19:40

    @Jin Thanks very much again! – Isaac Moses May 30 '12 at 20:21
