    I'm not on the graphics team but I do work with the graphics team with the social media team and I know Stacii won't mind me commenting.

    I approve. 100%. I've seen what you can do with graphics (as you've made my signature) and based on your portfolio you have a well rounded range of images that have different styles. This would be a great asset to the CC Graphics team because graphics and Minecraft can, after awhile, get a little bland. That's not a stab at anyone in particular...I've just found it hard to come up with new original, unique concepts for graphics and how to make using those graphics seem fun and new.

    I hope to see you on the team very soon! Good luck!

    I will be providing you with a challenge so to speak and once you're finished, please respond to this application. From there I will make sure that Stacii sees the finally product. I'm just being her eyes and ears for the time being since she is having to deal with her situation.

    Challenge:
    As I'm the social media manager, we work closely with the graphics team because these graphics are used and showcased on the Corbacraft Instagram as well as on an Instagram that Ergo owns that has like 12K some followers. My challenge for you is quite simple. I want you to create something that could be showcased and used on social media. Our goal with the social media team is to draw new players and potential long term players onto Corbacraft. I want your graphic to represent that. What do you feel, visually, could draw new players in? I'm not going to be picky with this. I'm going to allow you to have the reigns to interpret that in your own way. What, in an image, do you feel would draw you into a new server? Is it the build style? Is it the information displayed on the image? Is it something that's custom made? Now, with this challenge, keep what you're thinking of as just visual. Don't overthink it in regards to what the server has to offer or the staff or the community.

    Requirements:
    - Must have the server IP somewhere on the graphic itself.
    - Size must be 1080x1080

    Deadline:
    2 weeks from now which will be August 10, 2017.

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. I will try and answer them the best I can. Good luck! :)

    Hi Brooke,
    While we think what you did is really cool, we think you can do something even better such as things that are showcased in your portfolio. With that said, I'm offering you a second challenge that will go a little more in depth in regards to your talent and what you can do.

    Challenge:
    Create a logo for Corbacraft. Here's an example: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0580/2885/products/Preview_1024x1024.png?v=1499190757. We want to really see what you can do so don't feel you need to get this out to us in an hour or two...take your time and really think about what you feel could really represent CC in a clean, fun, professional way. Keep in mind what I stated in your first challenge...make something that will appeal to all types of players; a universal image so to speak.

    Requirements/notes:
    - Does not need to include the server IP
    - Size must be 1080x1080 - this is just for us to be able to see details and see the image in a HD fashion.
    - Must have some form of Minecraft element included but don't overdo that aspect.


    Deadline:
    2 weeks from now which will be August 10, 2017.

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. I will try and answer them the best I can. Good luck!

    Hi there ! I really had more fun with this challenge, because it was more of one. This logo i feel is able to be viewed at smaller sizes without being distorted to the point of illegibility, but is clean and able to be associated with minecraft ! :D

    I'll forward this on to Stacii and I'll get back to you hopefully today. :)

    Stacii will give you her verdict tomorrow. She's tired and has had a long day.

    Anyway, I have approved before and I approve again. Your second challenge was successful. Your first one as well but the second one won me over more so. That's probably because I'm terrible with giving out challenges and especially since graphics isn't my forte. I have given Stacii my approval (as she asked) and would love to see you be apart of the team.

    Good luck! :D

    Brooke, I have had time to review your second challenge and absolutely love it.
    You don't stick to examples and I love that about you. You think outside of the box, and that's what we look for!

    So without beating around the bush,
    congratulations and welcome to the team!

    If you wish to contact Gigi or myself, we will get you added to our slack.

    Thank you for applying!
