Hey guys, I'm a graphics student and I've posted a background I made (someone else made one, I expanded it. except I made it from scratch) and I'd love to get involved with this!


Seems like a lot of fun, I would do it for fun but if there's prizes, I wouldn't say no Smiley Wink


If there's a challenge or whatnot set up, I'd happily enter Smiley Very Happy

Maybe you could call the team the giffgraphers?

Ive been waiting for this sort of thing to happen for ages creating my giffgaff graphics pack a while ago from then ive been using illustrator so quality would not be a problem Smiley Very Happy,


Heres my competition ideas;


  • redesign parts of the site ( so your ideas for a new look.)
  • signature competition ( the classic best forum signatures win )
  • advert competition ( such as the twitter idea from Community Manager vincent so anything that will advertise giffgaff )
  • giffgaff merch competition ( So design for possible giffgaff merchandise )
  • giffgaff character design ( for those people who like to draw characters that could promote giffgaff )
There just a few ideas off the bat Smiley Very Happy Also I like idea of the team having a special name not sure what yet giffgraphers from rjheald sounds pretty cool Smiley Very Happy.

Sounds good Smiley Very Happy


I would quite like to see a "I'm on giffgaff!" image to use in sigs on other forums. It would be good advertisement Smiley Happy



Why I left giffgaff: my (not so great) experience with the giffgaff agents:

I particularly like @callumacrae's idea of an 'I'm on giffgaff!' image to use on sites or in signatures for other forums - this should be implemented.

As for competitions, I've recently spoken to @vincent, and we've come up with a rather interesting idea involving T-Shirts, designing and REWARDS!! So keep your eyes out for an update Smiley Wink
