New entry for the SuperNTF Logo Competition

Kevin made some very valid comments regarding my ideas for a logo for his SuperNTF application, so I finally got round to trying to incorporate them into a new design.

SuperNTF idea 6

What do you think?

I still fancy having a go at creating a banner image, but actually quite like the concept Nathan hit on. Will need to give it some thought.

Comments welcome! 🙂

    I thinks it looks great! And I also think you have too much time on your hands 😉

    Simon,

    I think you’ve hit on a winner here! I would consider this the first “production ready” logo that has been produced so far, and I’m already thinking up variations that would capitalize on it. For example something related to the Domino designer icon but with the same underlying SuperNTF baseline.

    This post from Jake Howlett might give you some interesting ideas along this line, including how to overlay icons which you may or may not already know how to do. Be sure to follow all the links in the post, especially the last one which contains over a dozen examples.

    I know it’s been mentioned that it would be nice to produce a similar icon that can be used as the database icon, and I agree it would be nice. However because SuperNTF is not a stand-alone application but rather a framework for other applications, I would consider that sort of thing mostly in bonus rather than a necessity. That said if you can pull it off that would be sweet!

    Going the other direction I’m also wondering if it’s possible to produce a variant of this that’s larger, and perhaps even a watermark variant similar to the one that appears on the splash page for the Domino Administrator client (which I’ve actually included in SuperNTF and called SNTF_AdminBackground.jpg).

    I really do appreciate all the effort that you and everybody else is putting into building up SuperNTF. It is extremely gratifying to see my work generate the kind of excitement that it has. Whatever Vitor thinks, I don’t believe you can ever spend too much time on this sort of thing 🙂

    Thank you!

    @Victor, If only, just good time management! 😉 (It helps enjoying this kind of thing!)

    @Kevin, Yes I was aware of Jake’s icons, there are some good ideas there. What themes are you looking for as variations?

    I gave a db icon a quick go, but it didn’t turn out to well at the first attempt! 🙁 But I’ll have another go.

    Larger and watermark versions are easy, what sort of sizes are you after?

    The icons are the easy bit, it all of us that appreciate the real work that YOU have put into this!
