Meta - Request for art

Submitted by elaydin on October 2nd, 2012 at 12:35 AM

I'm trying to update the MGoBlog iPhone app to support the taller iPhone 5 screen, but I need some new artwork to take up the extra space.  The current iPhone splash screen was kindly provided by Six Zero, but is currently "iphone 4 sized".

What I'm looking for is an image that:

  1. is 640x1136
  2. Doesn't infringe on any University trademarks
  3. Can be used as the splash screen
  4. or.... can be used as the app background.
  5. Splash screen needs have "MGoBlog" clearly visible.

Any input is appreciated and will be credited in the app and/or description.

Any other suggestions are also welcome (I'm aware of the "embedded movie is crazy tall" issue).

Regarding the appreciation for hard work and showing the # of replies. It was a small feature but helped show the popular topics--especially if you couldn't tell just from the title.

Also, I'm assuming it's not possible to allow app users to moderate and up/down vote?

Thanks again!

I'm unfamiliar with the iPhone app and what it looks like and thus what kind of image you're looking for, but if you're just looking for a good Michigan football image, here's one I uploaded one for you at the requested size (click for the full version):

I particularly love the missing stripe.

Though he's right, if you could tie his shoes you'd win the internet today.

(And more a question than a they have the logo on the BACK of the shoes too? Mainly in the vein of "how many damn times can they label something as small as a shoe??")
