This contest is open until October 31st, 2014
As you may have noticed, the OGS programmers don’t have much in the way of pixel art / icon graphics talent. The trophies we are currently using came from the old site and are incomplete, not scaled correctly, and don’t really match the site anymore.
So we need some replacements! Here’s the criteria:
Icons need to look good on both the light and dark site theme: used background colors are
#FFFFFFLight theme - tournament list
#F5F5F5Light theme - profile view: trophies list
#F8F8F8Light theme - left nav
#111111Dark theme - tournament list
#1D1D1DDark theme - profile view: trophies list
#333333Dark theme - left nav
Target icon sizes are
24x24, as well as
64x64for hdpi devices.
Formats can either be in either
.png(If you do the icons in
.svgplease make sure they render correctly on chrome, firefox, safari, and ie10+ ). A webfont would also be acceptable.
We need 24 such icons, specifically every combination of
- 3 board size: 9x9, 13x13, 19x19
- 4 ranks: 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place, and Conciliatory
- 2 classes: Site tournament and Group tournament
That’s it! Content, styling, coloring, and all of that is up to you the artist!
- You can make one set of icons that handles all cases (varying sizes, light/dark), or you can create multiple sets (for instance if you want to have different colors for different themes, or have different versions of the icons for the 15x15 set as opposed to a less squished icon for 24x24 +)
- Multiple submissions are allowed if you’re so inclined.
