Re: Logo for my distro

Good point, the text is small.

> ('mnm1' could also be on a new line)
There would just be too much clutter, its either the asterisk or the text. 

Here is '3' with bigger text. Thanks for the feedback smile

Re: Logo for my distro

^ Like it smile

A design point could be to make the "screens" in proportion to screen resolutions, so a bit more rectangular?
And kern the el so that it's a bit closer to the em? (Yeah, I know it's a monospace font, but it would look more "designer" smile )
Asterix between the em and el? - keeps it monospace as well then

Re: Logo for my distro

I still like Peachy's the best.
It's the most no-nonsense, to-the-point of the bunch. Doesn't try too hard, yet doesn't give a f*ck. Total anti-design win!!
The hinting/smoothing needs to go, though. Edit: Oh wait, that's just due to the resized thumbnail.
Looks sharp enough. The "L" is a tad too narrow in comparison to the other alphabets, imho.

Second fave would be Falkkon's. Personally I'd prefer non-rounded edges and a less curvy pixel font, fixed-width spacing of course. Screw design sensibilities!!

Re: Logo for my distro

sorry, it.s 330 in the morning and i.m jet-lagged so i.m gonna throw in my unsolicited 2 cents: fallkon, i think you were on track with that cropped asterisk / arrow.  very cool.  my only misgiving was the font.  so i threw this together based on your original...:

ps: the grey bkgd is only there so you can see the logo against the forum.s black bkgd.

Wow! That's really, really good, I especially like what you did with the 'L', really nice work smile, I guess we'll just have to wait for xeNULL and see what he thinks.

Re: Logo for my distro

i guess because of the jet-lag, i didn.t realize this thread had grown to two pages.  i didn.t even see that you had changed the font--now THAT one i like.  it.s a trip that you capitalized the "L" too--i thought i was 'innovating' that idea last night...!

ok so the mnml distro lost it's project leader.  looks like we're a leaderless community distro now.  ^_^

we have some graphics, a distro outline, and some vaporware...  we're well on the way.

we could even just use quickie as a base.  it's the closest thing i can think of.  ^_^  less distance to go.  smile

Nothing really to do with the origins of this thread, but talking small usable distros, have a look at SliTaz.
