For this year we've replaced my poor efforts on Worldbuilding with a new ad made by Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 , and Kit has resubmitted last year's ad on EL&U. But I'd like to do better.
Can we make the following ads? (Translation: can people with a better sense of graphic design and marketing make these ads?):
An ad for our technical-writing questions, to run on Software Engineering. I sketched a super-rough idea just to get the ball rolling. We will not submit that (that specific ad is terrible, I know), but maybe that gives you ideas.
An ad for our academic-writing questions, to run on Academia. We could update the 2015 ad or do something new.
Maybe an ad for our business-writing questions, to run on Workplace. Here's the 2015 ad. (I say "maybe" because the community there isn't big on ads in general.)
A general ad to run on SF&F. A lot of SF&F readers are also writers.
(Where else? Only graduated sites get ads.)
Anybody feeling graphically inclined? Please post proposed ads (300x250 px, or double that for high-DPI, and ensure there's a non-white border) as answers here.
Edit by Neil: Here are all the ads on their host metas. It'd help if people could upvote these, the ads need a score of 6 or higher to appear on the main sites.
