Is there an industry term for a ribbon wrapping the corner of a design element? I'm going to be referring to this a lot in the near future, and it would be great if I could call it something more intelligent than "The corner ribbon thingy"

One example of what I'm talking about is on the site: http://www.brasseriegerard.co.uk/ The right-hand div has three elements which it rotates through. The first element has a red 'New' ribbon wrapping the corner of it.

Thank you!

I've heard it called a "snipe" by someone with 30 years in the advertising business. We also called it a "corner hat."

I would probably call it a "corner element."

I'd call it a 'corner flash'. It's often a triangle rather than a ribbon, and as in this case, it's most commonly associated with a "New!" message.

+1 for the only answer which, when put into google images, shows me what the questioner was referring to (their site seems to be currently down) –  user568458 Mar 9 '12 at 16:08
    
The company is permanently down AFAIK... –  e100 Mar 9 '12 at 16:56
