New startups

To get onto the Distiller website you need a logo, a greyscale logo, a banner image, and a blurb. If you're opening a pull request then follow this pattern, otherwise send a Distiller admin the files and they can do it for you. File specs are:

source/images/startups/<your_startup_name>/banner.jpg # 507 × 316 px banner image
source/images/startups/<your_startup_name>/logo.png # 150 x 150 px logo
source/images/startups/<your_startup_name>/logo-grey.png # 150 x 150 px greyscale logo

A good example for your startup blurb file is

Old startups

When a startup leaves The Distiller, delete their image folder, and their markdown blurb, and put their name in the old_startups array in config.rb. This will put them into the Alumni section of the website.
