Call for new forum icons

Permanent link to this post Posted by steve » Thu Jan 15, 2015 2:07 am

An opportunity to contribute to this forum with your graphic design skills:

In the last major update to this forum, each board was given an icon. Due to the pressing need to keep the forum up and running 24/7, the icons were chosen rather hastily. Consequently there is something of a mishmash of icons in different styles on the forum index page.

Ideally we would like to have a set of new icons, one for each forum board, all in one coherent style.
Submissions must be the original work of the person posting, or written permission given from the copyright holder for the icons to be used on this forum.

Please post suggested icons as replies to this topic.

I will definitely try to tackle this as soon as possible. Quick question: Any required dimensions or shapes? ie Square vs Circular icons

32 x 32 pixels.
GIF or PNG format.

Note that the Windows / Mac ? Linux icons on the index page are the official (trademark) logos for the respective operating systems.

No rush, but I look forward to seeing what you come up with :)
When you've got something, I'd suggest starting a new topic, and post a link to it in this topic.

No, not solved. Take a look around the forum - there's still the mishmash of icons that I threw together.

um... ok. I'll do the icons myself then, maybe they will serve (I'll probably work on it in this weekend). I may post them here soon

Excellent :)

Could you post a link to a public folder on Google Drive or similar?

Here is the link to today's iconset:

https://drive.google.com/folderview?id= ... sp=sharing

Color: blue, so that the set is in harmony with the official Audacity logo.
Dimensions: 32x32px
Format: transparent 24bit PNG so that everything looks great.

Details: I have created the set by looking at nowaday's visual trends, so no circular of angular borders... just plain and simple icons, to match the material design standards (which is the biggest trend now in software and website interface design)

Thanks David.
I like them :) I've brought this to the attention of the forum crew, and if they are in agreement I'd like to try them in situ.
