Icon for XnConvert

Post by xnview »

Do you have an idea for the icon of XnConvert.
What can we add on the icon of XnViewMP?

Pierre,

I always imagined that a logo for XnConvert would look something like this:
(mock-up)

...If it was designed properly of course. Just an idea.

Maybe leaving the eye complete in the background and the arrows in the front would look better, dunno.

Sorry, I have very little time at the moment.
Here is a quick one:

a simple one with the Center "C" letter standing out for the for Convert.

and a more complicated one, "C" becomes less directly identifiable though once you highlight the "hidden" arrow:

thibaud, thank you so much for making spare time. :D

I like both of them but prefer this one a little more...

Could you make a second variation of this, but use green (or lime green) instead of white?

Yes true, but I think it shouldn't look little distinguishable from the original MP icon.. hence why I support the faded arrow.

Latest one is excellent :) You've acted upon recent feedback to come up with this design. Could you just do one favour, and try a green colour variant instead of that blue, blue is ok but I would like to see a green or multiple greens.... please

Good designs, budz45 and thibaud!

Personally, I don't like letters in symbols very much, therefore my current favourite is:

I like the additional color "cyan" in the latest draft above.

Well Pierre has already agreed on the last submitted icon from Thibaud (the cyan filled "C") so that is what will be used in XnConvert unless mass-public outcry demanding another redesign lol :P

Also, I have made some idea plans to incorporate that arrow icon that Thibaud posted above so we might just see it another XnView app project much soon.. Who knows

Until now I had the impression that finding an icon design was still on its way. Would have been nice if Pierre had left a note telling that a decision has been made. :-| But Pierre's the boss and the choice is not bad. :-)
