Hey Friends. I'm working on a project that I think everyone will enjoy, and there's something I need to make it really awesome. I need some nice big web banners for your favorite linux apps. I've made a couple examples just to get the ideas going:

Transmission: www.elementary-project.com/abu…
Do: www.elementary-project.com/abu…

I'm sure you all can come up with some really cool ones that'll blow mine away. So, please make a ton and send them in!

One more little thing. I have a template for you to use: www.elementary-project.com/abu…

Thanks a ton :D

It was when the AppImage stuff was first coming around and we were going to try to adopt them in elementary. But the work was never done to make them a viable alternative and I couldn't "design away" the technical problems.

Is there a list of needed apps ? Do we have to redraw the icon, or can we use the default/official one ?
DanRabbit's avatar
Whatever app you want ;) Just whatever your favorites are.

It's preferable that you use their official branding (if they have any or if it doesn't totally suck). But if you come up with your own spin, that's awesome too. The important part is that it's recognizable as that app.

For example, in the transmission banner, I used pretty much the stock header from their website. But in the Do banner I just used the tagline, purple, and the gear and kind of played around with it.

Whatever looks best :)

Aah, I didn't know the transmission website looks like that, I haven't gone on their website for ages :D
But isn't there any problem if the banner is too "ripped off" the original design ? I don't think there would be any problem, since most linux apps are licensed under GPL, but it may be worth wondering.

Anyways, I'll try to do some banners next week, when having enough time :)

Hmm, I dunno. I'll find out if I get in trouble, lol.
