Resubmission. Made some tweaks: additional large brackets and sunburst style glow instead of an oval

Nice bracketing, without text. You might want to try a more free-form glow next time. Draw a reasonably smooth oval, or whatever you like, with the lasso tool. Fill with the gradient or color opacity of your choice, then maybe add a blur, halftone it... It would be less obvious than a shape tool. JMO.

Thanks for the advice, I just started experimenting with halftoning. For the center glow I used an oval with the Zig Zag distortion (I was working in Illustrator) and applied a gradient before halftoning. Woot just says to leave the gradient when submitting an illustrator file so I'm not sure if their version of halftoning would be more subtle then my attempt. It was really hard to mess around with different settings because screen redraw couldn't handle all of the little dots on screen.
