Re: [hatari-devel] hatari-ui icon

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

I have an idea for a new logo: A (somewhat) stylish capital H followed by/melded with an Atari fuji symbol. If you guys like this idea, I'll design it as a bitmap and submit it here for comments, suggestions, etc. Then, once we nail down the design, I'll convert it to a vector format and clean it up.

Well, a proper SVG does not need to be delivered in multiple sizes,
being a vector format, it should scale itself properly, thus multiple
versions of the file should not be necessary.

I agree we need an artist to make one. While as a big website logo, the
green Hatari logo made of game sprites, is very cool, I think it does
not scale down well to icon size.

Current Hatari-UI logo is "H" from the Hatari logo scaled down to 32x32
(and has been like that for several years).

Maybe we need a more streamlined tablet/phone like vector icon?
