welcome

Hello there, and welcome to Seconds, a new graphics request site by Aaron since April 11, 2015. Through Seconds, I hope to be able to share my love for graphics and layouts with you.

Here at Seconds, you will find graphics that are handmade and rendered in a soft, richly-textured approach. I personally like to use a lot of light spots to give everything I create to achieve dream-like results. Coding-wise, I love incorporating many different layers that overlap in a coordinated fashion, creating more depth to each layout I approach. Each piece is lovingly assembled using Adobe Suite, and then checked in Chrome and Safari (1280 by 800px) on my Macbook, as well as on the iPhone.

This is what I offer:

I hope you enjoy your new graphics!

faq

i can't find the Save Changes button

Worry not! To find the Save Changes button, try zooming out on your browser by pressing CTRL and - . Alternatively, click here to read more about saving changes.

how long does a request take?

It usually takes between 1 - 3 days. However, during high traffic periods, it will take more time, somewhere between 4 - 5 days. (Real life does get in the way sometimes, but I always aim to finish everything within the fastest timeframe possible.)

do you make premades?

Maybe in the future, but not right now.

can i change the coding?

Sure, but as unless you are rewriting the entire code, please provide credit back to Seconds.

can i change the graphic?

Please do not.

how many graphics can i request at a time?

You can request a maximum of three graphics per request, and you may submit a request once a week.

what sort of graphics type can i get?

I work best with NR and Harry Potter-themed images. I will try other genres but I strongly recommend that you prepare high resolution images in this case.

can you copy the style of this graphic that someone else has made?

This one is a tricky one to tackle and explain, but the short answer is: no. A large part of each request stems from what I am inspired by, and from there, I incorporate all the things you require a layout to contain (like number of boxes or colour scheme). However, every designer has his or her own aesthetics. Please do not ask us to mimic each other so that your pages will match.

I can try to create pages that compliment your existing pages, but I won't copy another person's work to a tee. If you'd like matching pages, I would suggest you put in a request for all your pages from one person.

if i want to provide you with images to use, what are the requirements?

They have to be high resolution images for a beautiful graphic to work. As a rule of thumb, images for banners should be 500px by 300px and images for layouts should be 800px by 600px or larger. Secondly, if you are providing me with your images, please provide credits on your own for them, if required.
