Linux musicians favicon

Post by MattKingUSA »

Hey guys I made an ugly favicon for the site and Raboof was kind enough to upload it. I was thinking that someone could design a much nicer one for the site as the official lm icon?

Here is one based on the current default board theme.

Making favicons is one of my hobbies. I've made dozens of them.
The full icon set with source files are in this ZIP.*

Let's set up a poll for votes on this? I like the banner by Jarie but I like the favicon by bhilmers too. Hmmmmmmm we need a poll and more proposals? Would be nice to have a few to choose from. The favicon I made is rubbish. :D

This is not a serious proposal, just interesting how musical rests can be used to make the LM.

All icons are not pretty good.
The main reason is because when they become small, one of the letters (L or M) is hard to read.

Jarle's the best idea was with the first try. The only problem is to fix the image to make the M good understandable. All other ideas IMHO are weaker.
bhilmers's version has a very bad font work and annoying gradient in the center.
noedig's version is completely unreadable. Bad idea with stylization of letters as note signs.

Fair is fair, that's exactly what he mentioned himself, it was not a 'serious' attempt but indeed a pretty interesting observation.

I really like the activity and creativity sparked here - but indeed especially the visibility at low resolution / tiny size is a challenge here.

I'll wait for a bit to have more/refined proposals come in, then we should probably have a poll!
