25 Free Sexy-Ass Web Banners on Display


There’s one thing that i know is universally true about human beings:  people love free shit.  They’ll take anything if it’s free – it doesn’t matter what it is.  Say the word “free”, even under your breath, and the cheapskates come crawling out of boxes by the thousands like warehouse mice tracking the scent of a moldy piece of cheese.

In this case, that’s a good thing!  This banner giveaway thingy was a pretty bitchin’ deal, and personally, if someone offered me up a FREE custom web banner?  I woulda jumped on that shit like Charlie Sheen on a pile of cocaine.

Thank you to everybody for the interest, the shout-outs, and the challenge.  My fist is in the air right now so as to indicate, “fuck yes, cool, rock on!”  And if you’d be so kind and generous as to plug me again at some point in the future (that sounded dirty), I’d be eternally grateful, because daddy needs a new pair of slacks.  And he also needs to pay the electricity bill, because it’s hard to write in the dark with a computer that does not work.

Anyways, this is the last time I’m gonna whore on about all of this web banner stuff, because yes, we’re on the same page – it’s very annoying.  But again, remember the slacks and the electricity thing.  I gotta use my “Social Media tools” here.

So, if you’re interested in art and crap, here’s the 25 free banners that people are now sportin’ (or not…tsk tsk…) across the ‘Press.  I added some other stuff too, and left out all the badges and stuff because redundancy.

Graphic Design Banner

If you’re interested in having something designed, understand that I’m not out to screw anybody.  Anything that you request – a web banner/badge, a show poster or band art, a work flyer – all of it is based on the amount of time that it will require me to do it.  If you want cheap, I can do dirt cheap.  However, a lot of this stuff was hand drawn, and that kinda stuff I’ve learned takes time to do.  Plus, it’s completely custom and one of a kind.  Some of these banners took 15 minutes, while others took up to 3 evenings to complete.

I’ll be fair and competitive, and you’ll probably still end up getting more than what you pay for.  So, if you’re interested, email me at adam_sendek@yahoo.com, or drop a comment in the thread below.

Thanks again to everybody that expressed their interest and plugged me to your friends.  This was so much fun to do, and I’m looking forward to another fresh challenge.  And also electricity again, hopefully.  Cue the violin.

Rock on with your Sexy New Banners, Chowderheads \m/

    LOOK – it’s my banner, up there – the crazy Buick one, and it’s freakin’ awesome! And you OUTDID yourself on this! I don’t mean to sound like a commercial or anything but YO – you took my idea and RAN with it. You got skillz! (psstt – yes, people, I’m having him do some other stuff for me; get him while he’s cheap before he blows up and we can’t afford him anymore…)
    xo,

      Thanks, Samara! I appreciate that a lot – yours is still one of my favorites. Oh, and you’re doing a fabulous job Twittering. For a newb, I’m impressed. I’m still learning…

  2. NotAPunkRocker

    I’m happy to plug your services! 🙂 I love my banner and am impressed by the range you are able to provide in terms of style.

    Thank you again!

    • Chowderhead

      Thanks, and I’m really glad you’re happy – yours is in my top three favs! Anything with skulls and shit, ya know? Thanks for spreading the word. That’s the hardest part, I think. \m/

  3. Wendy Brydge

    Wow, Adam, you’ve done an awesome job! I hope this new venture really takes off, because I’m sitting here completely impressed with what you’ve done! Double rock star salute for you today!

    \m/ \m/

    You are so talented Adam! I didn’t even give you much to go on and mine is just perfect. I will most certainly be contacting you for all my future graphic design needs. One of my friends already suggested that the banner would rock as cover art for a book. Thanks again and as always…\m/ Rock On!

    • Chowderhead

      Thanks, D! I really appreciate that, and I hope you do. This stuff is so much fun to do, and I’m really glad that you’re happy. Keep me posted! \m/

    Reblogged this on From Casinos To Castles and commented:
    I hope you have noticed the awesome changes going on around here. Adam, from The Chowderhead, is my far, the most talented graphics designer I have come across in the blogosphere. I barely gave him any idea od what I wanted for my new header and he ran with it. The Roulette wheel is beyond perfect, especially considering our story on how we arrived back in Germany. And the Queen of Hearts driving the car with the graphics showing the tread is so “Fear and Loathing-esque”. I LOVE it and I highly recommend him. Definitely check out this post that gives examples of some of his recent designs.

    Oh and I’m still playing with the new theme a bit. He had to trim it down to make it work and I didn’t want to lose any more of it. So bear with me but I’d love to know what you think!

    Too much awesomeness for one page to contain!!! Damn. There are some amazing creative banners up there. I sincerely bow to fabulousness -curtsy-
    ummmm… one of my readers twisted the knife by asking what Loating was. Ummmm yet another request from the bottomless pit of demands at YoYo-Dyne. I’m pretty sure it’s loathing you are feeling towards me not loating.
    Adam, your work truly is incredible, The range of styles and genres blows me away. Think you’ve succeeded with the social media bomb here -grin-.

      Thanks, Rachael! The more you bow though, the more performance anxiety I feel haha! And I read that comment thread on your page myself – it literally made me laugh out loud. I think that was typo number five if I’m not mistaken. This is unprecedented stuff happening here. But anyways, thank you, and yes, I think the social media bomb has exploded. I’m pretty happy with the support – thanks for yours. \m/

      Here ya go:

      • R. C. Black

        You are a tireless addition to the arts my friend. As the thought of you with performance anxiety is too heinous to contemplate, I offer a curtsy -curtsy-. Ta Da!
        Next we’ll discuss your design for pop-ups…
        xo
        p.s. Not only I dig this banner, but my readers do as well. Hmmm Need one for YouTube. Am also getting serious about putting the band back together.
        No that’s not it.
        Ah, it was getting my former site back online. I shall message you.
        Think Oujia.
        You probably are!
        Thanks a buncha once again 🙂

      • Chowderhead

        Rachael, I literally just said “oh. my. god.” out loud just now. I’m fucking GEEKED about this. Thank you a thousand times. I really really dig doing the darker stuff a LOT. I’m so happy that you’re happy, and glad to hear that people are diggin’ on it too. You’re welcome.

        We’ll chat soon, and I still think your alien one is the banner that I’m most proud of. I salute me haha. Can I have it? Since you don’t want it? 😉

    No surprise that your first two commenters brought your work to my attention… especially as Sheena provided me a link. I have an idea about the sort of work that goes into these banners, as was on forums with users doing all sorts of work like this. \m/ 0.0 \m/ (<– see, that gets double rock hands from me)

    I'd ask for a commission, but… at the moment, I'd have to change my theme, again (what I picked doesn't allow headers for some reason) and, *coughs uncomfortably* well, I don't exactly have a conversational blog.

    • Chowderhead

      Jaku! Samara is a new online bud of mine, and Sheena and I go way back. We are rockers through and through. I double rock hand salute you back for your creative knack \m/ \m/

      I can hook you up with a bitchin’ sidebar image/logo? That would cheap and easy? Let me know, sir!

      • jaklumen

        I haven’t forgotten… I just found out the theme I use these days allows for footers– not as eye-catching as headers, but a banner of the same size could be used.

        Here’s the other downer, though… I am poor– as in disabled, “fixed-income”, wife is also on disability, two kids, one of them special needs. Is bartering acceptable?

      • jaklumen

        Oh, I’m on my last day of a trial version of a spinal cord stimulator. The fluid in my spine has been partially electrified, as it were, to stop pain signals. Maybe not the most elegant way to describe it, but I hope you get the idea.

      • Chowderhead

        Geez Louise, that doesn’t sound fun. I wasn’t prying, but I apologize if it came off that way. Anyways, hope things shape up for ya. Curveballs, man – but you still gotta swing for the fences, right?

      • jaklumen

        Oh, I’m just a hardcore sharer… I suppose being married to a Queen of TM(F)I for 15 years has rubbed off a little. It could have been worse… I could have shared more, but, eh, if you’re hardcore, there’s a photo at my blog. Gotta represent the Sick F club and all that.

        It’s going pretty well actually, Adam, so all’s cool. Part of me will be glad to have this cord sticking out of my back gone, but part of me can’t wait for the permanent procedure.

  10. anntogether.com

    Yep, you got a strong-ass, potent design aesthetic (I feel dirty cussing – it really isn’t me, I’m a 50-year-old mom trying to maintain positive role model status, but I hate to sound uncool ’cause your the coolest) Good luck with the banner biz…

    ps Thank you so very much for following. It makes me proud having such a cool and talented friend.

    • Chowderhead

      Haha, cuss away. You’re cussing is safe here. I’m honored to follow. Maybe honored is to strong of a word, but glad to follow. You seem like a pretty cool chick with many talents yourself. Thanks for following and a salute \m/

        Back at ya and Happy St. Pat’s. Many moons ago, I went to an Irish Festival with some friends. I wore giant hair that day and a group of fellas told me “go back to Brooklyn” 😉

  11. Sean Smithson

    These banners are really cool man. I knew you did Samara’s – which is absolutely brilliant – but some of the other ones are great too. Casinos to Castles probably just pips Buick in the land I think. Anyway, there’s my two cents worth. Carry on.

    • Chowderhead

      I really appreciate that, Sean. I’m flattered to the max right now. Both of those were a lot of fun to put together – two that I’m pretty proud of actually. I hope they only get better \m/
