Monthly Skinning Competition Discussion -- #4 ended

Recommended Posts

Okay, I think I've got a theme to go by for one of the logos: Photorealism. It'll look somewhat like the current PDN logo, but without the thick outlines or plastic-like surfaces. It'll be tuned for Vista (that means I'll keep my idea of the glass picture frame).

BTW, is it just me, or am I seeing Paint.NET banners instead of logos?

Well, that may be true (that there's confusion).

My thought was that the pdn logo is currently this:

paintdotnet.5.1164870242.gif

So I was shooting for something with similar composition (text plus a representative graphic).

From most minimal to most complex in my mind, the order is:

Icon - Logo - Banner

Where an icon is just a graphic, a logo usually includes some text (like a company or product name), and a banner is a glossy and graphic image that uses the icon or logo in its composition.

Is that not what we're shooting for here?

Well... I dunno myself, but it wouldn't really blend in on a webpage (getpaint.net for example)

I'm not sure if that's allowed:

Once you have submitted your entry, you may no longer add anything/delete or edit your post, excepting editing to add links to source images.

but i can post three logos... or not ???
Each contestant may submit up to three logos.

Well, you were supposed to make all the logos that you would like to enter and then post all at once, but I think we can let you go just this once.... ;)

Here are a couple that I did:

1. PaintNetLogoDesign2.png

2. Disc.png

Number 1, was Entered and was 100% Paint.net (except for the splashes) albiet number 2 was not and cannot be considered a logo, per se..... The only things taht were imorted from outside were the PC Software logo, the ESRB logo, and the official Paint.net logo. Oh and I almost forgot the Windows Vista Logo....
