Pretty simple - we're looking for several clever "Now Loading..." (text is optional) animated GIFs to randomly use on our web site. We'd like for each to incorporate our "TLU Man" (The Linkup Man) logo (that was also designed by a sitepoint designer!). Anything goes..
-TLU man waiting (stomping foot)
-TLU man uploading something
-TLU man dancing
-TLU man spinning
-TLU man catching folders
-TLU man sorting folders
-TLU man writing on folders
-TLU man making notes
-TLU man riding a bike
-TLU man doing anything clever that you can think of!
The web site is about file storage and file sharing.
We'll award the best single design $50, but would like to use many entries. If we choose to also use your design, we'll pay $25 for all other entries. If you make 4 that we use, we'll pay you $100 (if they were all "2nd place").
Here is the TLU man:
