Designing an image or ad to be shown in our iFringe app? This page gives you all the information you'll need, together with some hints and tips to help you achieve the best results on the small screen of a smartphone.
Your artwork will look huge on your computer monitor, but remember it'll be shrunk down to fit the tiny screen on your phone. Simple, striking ads usually work best.
Here are some examples of artwork we think has been effective in previous years. Notice that they're all still readable, even when they're shrunk to a small size.
To see what your artwork looks like once it's been shrunk down, email it to yourself – then look at the email on your smartphone. If anything in the image is hard to make out, then we definitely recommend you change it.
If you think you may come close to any of these boundaries, there are two things you can do. One option is just to go ahead and submit your artwork; either we'll accept it, or we'll write back explaining the problem. Or, if you'd prefer to get an answer before you put the effort into design work, you can contact us at email@example.com.
We're expecting that you're going to produce your own artwork, using a program like Paint Shop Pro or (if you're a more advanced designer) Adobe Illustrator. But if you prefer, we can design your artwork for you, based on your existing posters or publicity photos. There's a nominal £20 fee for this service.
For more details of our design service, or if you have any questions about these requirements, just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your interest in iFringe!
