Re: Introduction and First Project (Máirí n)



Cool thanks for the link.  Most of the designs I do are in Illustrator so that they are in vector format.  I can convert it to (almost) any format you need though.  I have done a very small amount of print but not enough to really work with it.  Usually when I have an idea about a design in my head i'll look up some tutorials and mix and match a little from those.  I am pretty good with icons and have some knowledge with Flash animation as well.

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.)

the second link is not giving me permission to see.

i suggest you to use plain text mail, than an HTML one.

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_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.

We are quite proud that our graphics *for* Fedora are made *with* Fedora. But if you are so in love with Windows + Photoshop, we won't deny your choice.

And even if GIMP can open .psd files, it *may* not be 100% accurate, so using .xcf is better for collaboration with the rest of the team.

graphic requests you have available at the moment.  I'm looking for something easy to start off with.

Then have a look at this: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Artwork/DesignService

I am in the camp liking the second (themed) version best. Only that the bottom text row seems a bit crammed, the green arrow is small and does not have enough space to breath.

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.

I tried it agains a black background and it seems OK to me.

I've posted on the wiki (see below for the url) two new versions of both files, with a little kerning of "11" number and the remotion of green arrow (and bigger fonts for the bottom text).

In these versions, rounded corners seems to be ok, if you see newly some defects feel free to contact me.

Sorry for the inconvenience, now the files are on the wiki:

Hi Paolo!

Thanks for posting them to the wiki! These both look great! I definitely agree with everyone else though that #2 is probably the best.

It still looks like your bottom row of text could be a bit tighter. The first 'F' and the last 'w' look like they are gasping for air from the corners. I think the top row of text could be kerned just slightly tighter as well. Also, I think it might be better to push the '11' to the left a little to add a little balance from the temple.

Other than that, this is fantastic. Thank you for being so great about being on top of the web banners!! This is extremely good work; you've followed our general banner format / font / etc to a T.

Welcome to our team! Glad to hear you are a GIMP fan as well. :)

We've got a lot of small projects for the taking at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Artwork/DesignService - feel free to claim any of these tasks that interest you to work on! If you can tell us a little bit more about your design interests (do you enjoy doing print design? do you like making icons? animations? etc.) then we might be able to suggest something for you as well.

~m
