Please read the following guidelines carefully. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us.

Requirements and Formats

We will accept artwork using any of the following visual formats:

  • SVG

  • We may also accept other formats, but please contact us first.

All submissions must be web compatible!

Instructions

  1. Fork our Codepen.
  2. Get your code in working order.
  3. Use the form below to share your Codepen link with us, including a little background information about the artwork (try to keep it under 500 words).

Things to keep in mind

Please take common sense precautions in making your artwork, bearing in mind that its primary use will be on the home page of our website. Test your code and check your system processes to ensure it is not creating excessive CPU usage. Please also test your code running for an extended period of time to test its ongoing impact on the computer's CPU. Try to keep file sizes down, 2MB is just about reasonable, more than that should be discussed with us.

Disclaimer and Legal Stuff

Sorry about this, but we do need to make a few things clear, so please be sure you've read this part prior to sharing your artwork with us:

  1. Submitting your artwork does not guarantee its inclusion on our website. Due to a potentially large number of submissions, we also cannot guarantee a personal response if your submission is not selected to be featured.
  2. Artwork must be safe for work, please. You’re creative. You express yourself through nudity, and that’s fine in general, but it’s not going to be appropriate for a Git client’s website. Please keep it family friendly. This includes the usual no-nos of hateful, discriminatory, etc. content. Please use your common sense and keep it clean, as failing to do so guarantees your work will not be accepted. If in doubt, please contact us.
  3. Your artwork is your own. We do not take ownership of it. However, by sharing it with us, you give us permission to use it on our site and for marketing purposes. You will be credited wherever possible.
  4. By sharing your artwork, you acknowledge and accept that it may be necessary for us to make modifications to the artwork and code, to get it working or performing better in our production environment.

That’s it! Wasn’t so bad, was it?
