Re: [echo-perspective] New computer icon set (Mark)



That would look really good vectorized.  Samsung monitors have that nice curve to them that makes it look really good.  Or maybe even make a combination of that Samsung you listed and this one.  The keyboard also fits very well with it.  As for a mouse, maybe something like this? (Sorry if it's already been created, i'm new and trying to get in the flow of things.)

Subject: Re: [echo-perspective] New computer icon set
Just something else i just noticed.
The screen inside that monitor is missing something.. something like
an inside border (don't know how that's called)..
The thing i mean is that the screen itself (the flat panel) and the
outline seem to be on the same depth now (no shadows) while the
screens themselves normally are pushed back a little in the casing
creating some kind of bevel(?).

I hope you can do something with this vague suggestion.. really hard
to explain when you don't know how it's called ^_^
i will see if i can change something in this screen in the weekend (no
promises!)

Another thing i noticed (in firefox when clicking on the SVG) is that
the text on the keyboard looks really strange and so black... i think
that should be changed a bit to dark gray.

And perhaps a completely different idea for a monitor (the one i'm
looking at right now while typing this)
http://www.samsung.com/nl/consumer/detail/detail.do?group=computersperipherals&type=monitors&subtype=lcd&model_cd=LS20PEBSFV/EDC#

a black monitor! (since you tend to be liking every icon in a darker
theme anyway). The design of that monitor is nice and would fit
perfectly with a black keyboard as well.
And the keyboard i use : http://www.3t.hu/images/Logitech%20ultra%20flat.jpg

remake both in icon style and you will probably have a perfect icon for:
- Monitor
- Keyboard
- Desktop
- and all that have a monitor and/or a keyboard in them

Subject: Fedora 11 Beta release banner
Hi there, we are near to F11 Beta release, so I've two candidates for the "beta release banner":

http://pleoni.altervista.org/fedora11-beta-banner_1.png
http://pleoni.altervista.org/fedora11-beta-banner_1.svg

http://pleoni.altervista.org/fedora11-beta-banner_2.png
http://pleoni.altervista.org/fedora11-beta-banner_2.svg

The first is a non-themed version, while the second uses a part of Mo's wallpaper mockup.

Like the second one, way better. Text is more readable and it matches
the beta release wallpaper. Thank you, for working on this.

Subject: Banners and splashes
Hi all you fabulous Artists and Designers,

I wanted to ask about two things, backgrounds and other art.

BACKGROUNDS:

I noticed that Martin produced a package of the leonidas-backgrounds,
and F10 users can test it now if they want:
http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/packages/leonidas-backgrounds/10.92.1/2.fc11/noarch/leonidas-backgrounds-10.92.1-2.fc11.noarch.rpm

I've tried it here on my F10 box and the package works perfectly.
(And frankly, I think it's quite lovely, although I have a bit of a
problem making out my blue-themed folder icons against the color of
the sky sometimes.)  Has anyone had a chance to announce this to
whatever population we want to test the backgrounds and report back?
Do they know what kind of feedback the Artwork team is looking for?


OTHER ART:

According to the F11 schedule:
http://poelstra.fedorapeople.org/schedules/f-11/f-11-art-tasks

...splashes and banners are something the Artwork team creates from
now until about March 27, two weeks or so from tomorrow.  Then they're
packaged by March 31, so that they can be tagged and included in the
Preview Release.

The listed splashes, headers and other art scheduled for March 27
includes:

* GNOME splash screen
* KDE splash screen
* Fullscreen splash for syslinux
* GNOME screensaver lock dialog
* Square splash for anaconda and firstboot
* Anaconda horizontal header
* Firstboot vertical header
* Fullscreen grub splash
* Plymouth bootup/loading graphics
* kdm login screen theme

Is the listed date of March 27 enough time to produce these various
derivations?

* * *

BTW, the item of creating the Beta Website Banner is listed as to be
completed by March 20, and given the previous thread on this list, it
looks like that's well underway.  Superb!  I'm looking forward to
another incredibly beautiful release thanks to the talent and hard
work you guys apply to each new Fedora.

Hi Paolo!

Thanks for your work! There is one problem though, I can't view any of these files. When I try to visit the URLs I get redirected to: http://im.altervista.org/void.gif

Could you please upload these to the wiki?

Thanks,
~m

i saw the images, and i like the first.  but the second was nifty too.

oh and can we make sure that the rounded corners are really
transparent?  the last banner had little white spots on the rounded
edges rather than being transparent so it was truly rounded, if i
recall correctly.  It looked fine against a white background but
obvsiouly against anything else it looked odd.

Hello,
My name is Kevin Friedemann.  I am a young aspiring graphic designer looking for experience and real life examples to work from.  I use Fedora 10 but prefer Photoshop over GIMP.  I am looking for any open graphic requests you have available at the moment.  I'm looking for something easy to start off with.

Thanks,
