Pleased to showcase our last Fediverse icon design. We're calling it '#fediOrigami'.
If you have ideas to improve it, please tell us and we'll consider. There are two colour palettes for this design. This palette is the "organic" palette, see below for the other.
SVG to be uploaded. If you have a repo and would like to host this content, again, just sing out.
This is the "party" palette of the #FediOrigami icon design.
It includes gradients and is more suited to websites that are going for a more colourful, vibrant look.
The way they are blending is via 'multiply'. We are hoping to resist manual intervention but it will probably be needed for the "final" result.
We don't like the green in our 'party' version ourselves and will seek a green that better matches (#)fedivert and the green in the 'organic' variant that you boosted.
That version is definately our preferred and we as designer we shouldn't have a strong preferrence.
The 'party' version reminds of the #everlastingGobstopper rn, lol.
To us, that is where the challenge is, we hope for a design that highlights how we blend together in interesting ways.
The icon does seem to read when small, on both a dark and light background. Even without the white sticker edge, which is promising.
Is it ok if we keep you in the loop on a future update. It will probably be a month or so away. We are stretched rn.
Pleased to announced v3.
Something wasn't sitting right. A friend we miss, Freed Creative, said rounded edges suit fedi better, we went and tried that and it solved our annoyance. Also improved the colours of 'party' version, and shapes generally.
Now also with both an on-light and on-dark sticker.
Great to know. Thanks. We hoped both would have their own use cases and judging by your interest in both at different times, maybe that will eventuate.
So as not to cause too much bother we will limit the replies to only those that reponded in some way, moving forward.
We produced How-To-Draw for the #fediverseIcon.
THE TRANSPARENT #PNG
The minimum pixel-size of this lineStyle variant is 48px. You can get that by reducing this image to 6.25% in GIMP.
Need 96px? Reduce to 12.5% etc
WE'RE WORKING FOR FREE
Share a link to a non-Cloudflare site that uses less appropriate iconography (eg. Mastodon icon) and we'll #volunteer our time to export a Fediverse icon in the exact format size and colour they need.
After they adopt it, they can proudly say they are a #Fedizen.
Please boost. #fediVolunteering
YOUTUBE ALTERNATIVE ICONS
Theese icons have a similar shape and colour to the legacy site but designed from the party-style of the #fediOrigami icon.
Someone came forward and told us about you.
Welcome to Fedi, what took you so long?
As described in our pinned toot censors Wikimedia, very deceptively and in bad faith to wait the maximum amount of a person's time acting in good faith.
And we don't like to say that about anyone.
Look ma, I learning to be an extremist Nazi on a CloudFlare server "nicecrew.digital", like my friend who I haven't seen on Discord since Monday.
My avatar is Complete with Auschwitz photo and skull iconography, and I can be seen wearing a Burger King hat because being a fascist is profitable for me and I hope to sell the bodies back to the plebs as meat.
I'm a clever nazi.
Believe it or not, you don’t actually need to add the ^^^ when you’re replying to a comment. This may be news to you, but when you reply to a comment it actually shows you where in the chain that comment is (normally it’s directly above the comment that you post). I don’t remember peak oil but I do see you’re trying to educate me on peak boomer so I appreciate your efforts.
@bara @dsfgs @joel @djsumdog @donno @G1galovaniac @jeffcliff @tobi @realcaseyrollins Imagine what passing a squad of crusty shale through your digestive system would be like. Every so often you’d pass a trilobite skeleton or a clumsy amaterish hand-dipped candle - very cool! - but otherwise, probably an ordeal.
Hi David, what do you mean? The above post is for websites. We are volunteering to help folks update the social buttons on their website.
@dsfgs I was simply thinking that if I did a social site link back to here, what might a telephone derived icon for that look like...
