Icon / Splashscreen
May 08, 2010 02:57PM
Another thread I would like to revive after the crash.

Fox every once in a while creates me a new Icon + Splashscreen + Banner (about box)

Current set is still new to me but may be someone wants to create a better looking set to replace the current one.
If you do.. here is the place to present it.

Whats needed?
3 png images:

1. Icon I prefer to have this in at least 256px*256px (512px even better)

I do have some script that creates the smaller resolutions from the large on automagically though if you want a different icon for smaller resolutions thats also possible i.e. different icon for 16px or 24px

2. The banner: current one can be seen in the about box 100px * 300px anything around that format will do
3. The splash screen currently 640px*350px though anything near that will do (though it may exceed 640px)

Thats about it ...
If you post something here I will try to critisise and I am hopeing people will argue for and against a image set.
Though hopefully all in a constructive way.

i.e. constructive criticism / impressions on the current image set I got till now:
this black line / wave looks a bit to close like "Pepsi" and the rings are kind of like "bubbles"

i will try to make one when i get some free time grinning smiley

just as a note on the current image set. the picture in the about section in the current release should be rotated 180 deg for readability like on the spines of dvd's and books ect.

I know its backwards.. but kind of refreshing. giving your head a different angle.. isn't it all about being different?

Yeah as if I wouldn't get it... google tells me each time I google Jucy that I probably meant Juicy ... *g

Though possible criticism ... the orange-black arrow combo brings up thoughts about american roadsigns.

I would prefer Jucy rather be in the sense of playful cheery .. gleeful ... not in the direction of some Juice ..

So a playful, frisky Icon+splash are wished ... I know Icons are problematic in that respect due to the size though may be you start off with a splash screen and bring a simpler version of it as Icon? see current splash and Icon...

About colour I would like to see something warm. Though barely anything warmer than the current red is possible... though any kind of warm colour is good.
