Make a hat for and get 4000 rubles!

so, last post caused a lot of criticism from many, so the long-suffering cap was removed from the site. But there was an idea to hold a competition for this very hat with a prize fund. Yes, I could try the options myself, but, firstly, everyone saw my maximum creative possibilities a day ago (I’d better write articles, and the design is not my strong point), and secondly, there will still be who something dissatisfied and all this can be very delayed.

In general, in order to speed up the process of changing the template and bring the site to its final form, I propose to contact the professionals, arrange a competition for the best hat and then choose it by universal suffrage. As I understand it, there are designers among our audience, so all hope is on you! You can not only win some reward, but also help us with the site. Save, in short!

Conditions of the competition

First place - 4000 rubles.
Second place - RUB 500.
Third place - 500 rubles.

The competition will end on October 20, you can join at any time.
After that, there will be a vote within 4 days.

You can tell your friends and designers about this competition, they may want to participate.

I ask you not to wind up voices, so that we can really choose the hat that everyone will like the most. In case of suspicion of cheating, I will conduct a survey and find out how many votes there actually were, and the cheaters will be disqualified. Believe me, I know how many readers we have approximately, and I communicate with many of them in private..


What is the competition. You need to come up with something with a cap and give a finished picture. To vote, we will post a screenshot of the main page with a new header, and then we will vote with all the options.

Of the main requirements there should be:
- the name of our site «»
- inscription «Everything is real! No matter what…» (small such).

Also, probably, an inscription is needed. «Welcome to the blog of Oleg, Daria and Egorka», to identify whose blog. But you can try without it. You can also come up with a logo, because we have never had a logo 🙂 The more beautiful everything turns out, the more chances to win.

Yes, I do not put our photos as a mandatory requirement, but it seems to me (judging by the comments) that we should still be present in the cap. However, this is not a requirement. Also, photographs can be vector, and in general there can be drawings in one line or something else. The only request is, do not take something ready-made in the open spaces, it is better to buy later in the photo stock (I will pay), but for now you can temporarily use the demo while the voting is in progress. You can coordinate all questions with me.

The current font for the Pt Sans headings (article headings, sidebar headings), you can use it for the header labels as well. Or suggest a different font, both for the header (any) and for all other headings (only Google Fonts and standard).


Now the header has a width of 1220px, but the height is basically any. But personally, I would not like a high hat, because it is inconvenient when you need to scroll for a long time. Thus, we have a rectangle between the black menu at the bottom and the green menu at the top. This is, if simple. You can also climb over the edges (left and right) by placing the image in the background div’but. But it must be borne in mind that the template is rubber, the width in the header changes only for objects inside the div, and if you make them backgraond’oh this div’a, then the picture will not be scaled. You yourself can experiment with CSS, for example, through Firebug. And if something is not clear, then ask in a personal or in the comments. But I do not promise that you can implement anything here, I would not like to redo the template much, otherwise I am afraid the layout will fall apart 🙂


And the last thing. Surely, our photos will be needed. It is not possible to fill in the entire archive for the simple reason that it is rather difficult to select from 30 thousand photos only those where we are. Therefore, I selected a number of photographs and sent them in an archive to all participants..

We can also try to specially take the necessary photos. True, the light in our apartment is not very good, and you can't go out into the street without warm clothes and a hat. Alternatively, you can come and take a picture of us yourself (Moscow).
