My suggestion for a favicon of ASDF.

Post by Ivokyuftaf6666 » Mon Dec 28, 2020 7:45 pm

Dear fellow ASDF members, today I created an idea of a favicon of the ASDF forums. :smile:
It is attached to this post. :smile:

I like the cartoony style (I think it fits the site well), but I have a few big criticisms:

- It's hard to read what it says. I cannot tell what those letters are without already knowing they say 'ASDF', as they are very oddly drawn and placed.

- The yellow background takes up too much of the image.

A good first iteration, Ivo, but I do not think it's polished enough to be a strong contender.

This is of course, my opinion, and you are free to disagree. I think if you tried to change those two things a bit, it would come out much nicer!

Though, I have to admit, even if you did those things, I still prefer the current favicon, as it's inherently less saturated, and thus less intrusive. It much more nicely matches the default light theme of most internet browsers.

What about this drawing, then? :smile:
I was also considering the idea of offering it as a favicon, as well, even though I still do not know if it will be clear, since the size of the favicon is expected to be small.

It's much better, but it would look terrible as a favicon, since it would be severely shrunk to a smaller resolution, leaving it as a blurry mess.

Also, this image is longer than it is taller, so it would be squeezed horizontally in addition to being compressed.

IIRC, a favicon needs to be 16x16 pixels? Or was it 32x32? Even if it were 64x64, this would still be too large an image to function.

Also, the site's theme has no yellow in it anywhere, except for the Smilies (if those even count as part of the theme), so something blue and gray would be more accurate to what the site actually looks like when you log on.

it could be squared up like this... not sure if it's a good idea, just tested it too see how it looks:
I shrunk it to 50x50 but it would be even smaller in the browser tabs and bookmarks I guess.

I guess the contrast could be better.

Today I created new suggestions that give the association of trains! :smile:
I think that in the label in the favicon it is logical the letters S and D to be adjacent, because in ASDF S and D are also adjacent. My ideas of a favicon is to make it a line that can be consecutively followed through without jumping (even though not a straight line). Upon this logic, the current favicon is more possible to be read ASFD than ASDF.
However, I offered multiple suggestions. Feel free to choose one of them. :smile:

And tbh, let me tell you a secret. When the D is exactly under the A in ASDF, on the vertical the word AD gets formed. AD is word in Bulgarian and it means hell. This coincidence might make the Bulgarian part of ASDF members feel uncomfortably. Also, this would not fit, because ASDF is exactly the opposite - ASDF is a heaven! :smile:

I love ASDF wholeheartedly. :smile:
