Yikes, I think I have a very different meaning for "design." To me, design includes the organization and the aesthetics of the layout, which focuses on things like colors, graphics, etc. "Development," on the other hand, focuses on coding.
Here's a venn diagram of the two:
Aside from the different understandings of the terms above, I will agree that on GASR...
- codes are not allowed (as usual)
- large artworks, such as avatar art and portraits, for homepages are allowed
- little graphics, such as headers, that go into layouts are allowed
- underlying images for layouts, such as what Kia linked,
If we were going with the definitions above, that would mean "designs" are allowed on GASR.
It might be a good idea for us to further elaborate on this rule in the Rules/Guidelines thread.
MY BAD, GUYS, FOR CAUSING CONFUSION.
