Yes. Something along that line, incorporating the letters of the icon into the logo.

Ok. Maybe we/I should write a style/logo guideline for Widelands where for example the color codes are defined.

Here an rough scratch:


Widelands green:

HTML notation: 388020

Red: 56 Green: 128 Blue: 32


Widelands brown:

HTML notation: 803820

Red: 128 Green: 56 Blue: 32


Widelands gold:

HTML notation: c09438

Red: 192 Green: 148 Blue: 56

That is an excellent idea. It would help graphic artists (myself especially) maintain a consistent look throughout the project (i.e. game, editor and website).

If you would care to create a catalog of the color codes we currently utilize in our standard graphics, that would be very much appreciated. We can discuss at a later time how and where that information will be made available for reference.

Here is a representation of the other option I was trying to describe (i.e. incorporating the letters of the logo into the icon):
logo

It would be advantageous I think to keep a copy of these alternate logos in the media library for future use if we can't find an immediate application for them.

Next try:

Widelands logo

I would suggest one of the little worker graphics for the icon. I think this would look really cool.

Very good way of presenting it! I like it also , the only thing that looks a bit strange is the "NDS" in the first logo that fades to a darker dark (shadow?). That somehow catches my eyes. Great work!

I thought it would make it easier to read. It seperates it from the "ide".

Yes, fraang, I like it, too. If you wish to use the shading on the "NDS", let's make it consistent and shade the "A", as well.

Nice work! Now to put them to use. face-smile.png Do you have a Launchpad account? If not, take a look at the "GettingStarted" wiki page.
Alternatively, you may email the files to me and I'll put them in the Media trunk.

How is the barbarian Coat of Arms coming along? That IS the topic of this thread after all. face-grin.png
