uhm, me? :D ~applies~
I have photoshop skills, and can make what I think are attractive graphics. Some of my work is posted here: aranyx_graphics and I've made headers and walls for various people. Did graphics for the merlin_ldws, header for flash_rider, some other things that are escaping me at the moment.

Hired!

If you decide to take our ~generous~ and "well-paid" offer of work, what I'd love to have submitted initially is a Call For Submissions banner!

You have pretty much free rein regarding the images you put on the banner, but ideally something MCR as that is the current issue...
The tentative official font for the title of the fanzine is the one in the user profile right now, so that would be great on there somewhere... Full colour is fine, though the fanzine itself may be printed almost entirely in black&white/greyscale so you might wanna see if it looks okay in that kind of state (as we'll run the banners in the zine too, just to be fancy~ Size is whatever, but ideally squarish. Hopefully something not so huge that communities freak out when they see it spamming their layouts.

Script for the text should be something along the lines of:

"ZERO PERCENT is a fanzine looking for contributors to submit unpublished fan materials. We want your fan works to be distributed in physical paper form, as fanworks published in zines from the 60s-90s were! ZERO PERCENT comes in themed issues, the current theme being:

MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE

We want fanfiction, articles, opinion pieces, fanart, comics, humour, macros, columns, faux advertisements and anything else you can think up! We only ask that it be unpublished online or anywhere else. There is no profit made from this zine, and it will only cost the price of the paper it is printed on & postage. All contributors will receive a free copy of the issues in which they feature."

If you feel you need to fancy pants anything up, go ahead :xxxx

If you get bored you could always make a Now Available splash banner just with pretty images~ Or an upcoming alternate version of the Call For Submissions for the Heroes issue~

Or just some pretty banners and headers etc in black&white/greyscale that we can scatter through the zine~~~~

There are no deadlines....yet. >D

*considers* Well, I mean, I was hoping for something with full-time benefits, but the salary is very tempting...

I accept!

I am on this right now. I can do b&w and color versions of everything pretty easily, so now worries on that front. Then you can choose the most ~appropriate for each situation!

Can I get a name and/or download link of the officious font? Makes it a lot easier, especially for different colors, sizes, etc etc.

One clarification: is this edition technically just MCR or bandom? The user info confused me just a wee bit :p

Excellent! I am glad we have managed to entrap tempt you!

O: You are so on to it. :xxx

Yup, the font is called Chintzy CPU BRK, so go wild (although idk if it's the best choice for large amounts of text. Might get squinty lol.)

tbqh all we have received so far is MCR, so best to go with that. We will run pretty much anything bandom, but from the submissions, it seems like this is going to be alllll about the my chem. So I guess go with that. :p

Ohhhh and I guess go light on the Black Parade imagery. It's going to be a pretty irreverent zine as it is (like...I think we're pretty much going to be a paper version of tumblr o_o) so Three Cheers and Danger Days fans are probs our greatest target markets.

One last thing! (sorry for all the questions, I promise once I get a handle I'm not this bothersome)

Do you have a preference between using 0% and Zero Percent? Or just whatever looks better?

Zero Percent is the preferred name, but 0% is like the logo/acronym lol

Oooooh I just opened your submission and it is gorgeous!

The emphasis you've put on the important points are absolutely perfect!

My only tweaks would be that we make the Call for Submissions part a little more prominent or at the top, and/or push the text a little higher on the image. That's all! I love it.

:x

oh man, I knew I was forgetting something! I have an idea...

yes! perfect!!! :D *kisses you*

Excellent! Now to proceed to boredom tasks (because I am bored....)
