[Ended] SciTE4AutoHotkey Icon Competition

08 Jun 2014, 17:31

Update: Winner announced.

The current SciTE4AutoHotkey icon is kind of ugly, and I want to replace it. Problem is: I terribly suck at graphical art. So here's this small competition! Rules:
  • The icon must at least have 16x16, 32x32 and 48x48 sizes. Additional sizes are welcome.
  • The icon should represent both SciTE and AutoHotkey.
  • The icon must be under a license such that I can use it.
I'll let this competition run for a few weeks; then I'll announce the winner. Also, bonus points if you follow the Metro design language (that is, flat look with plain colours).

Well, I know that ill probably lose, but its fun... ;) so anyway here.. since the old one i had was weird and had "scaling" problems
Old version
I decided to go with a pixel art. :P Now they have to scale well, hehe ;) Designed in a 16x16 pixel area. I guess you could say, i sorta had a "brain-fart"... :P So, didn know what to do exactly :P And possibly, people here might hate pixelart?!? I dont know whatever.. Here's my "poop" (dump) of ideas...

Cheerio, ol' chap! ;)

Maybe it is better to make competition for SciTE4AutoHotkey logo + icon based on that logo. I think logo and icon should look similar.
I don't have graphical art skills but I think logo and icon should look very simple. I think simple logos look very modern, hitech, easy to remember and just cool :) Some good examples of simple logos: http://speckyboy.com/2011/05/20/50-simp ... o-designs/

If you are looking for original source, and want to merge them with a 256*256 resolution (about your scaling problem):
http://www.pngfactory.net/png/13765/SciTE (transparent .png, all size inside .ico)
https://github.com/Lexikos/AutoHotkey_L ... /resources (all size inside icon_main.ico, else ask to Lexikos for a better resolution)
Good luck ! (no time to participate)

Thanks Zelio! It's just that... How can SciTE be represented in a 16x16 space? :(

A circle as an oversimplified reference to scite and the inevitable H in the center. Resizes pretty well. Looks a bit like the half life icon.

Hmmm, why not, but it look likes an heliport logo in a golf field...

I haven't enough time and it is just some ideas, I let you discover how to do a simple "metro" icon at http://adrien.guichard.free.fr/scite4ahk.zip
Windows 8 seems to do like that... a mask with a metro color, that can give two results, one for the desk UI and the other for the pad UI...

Again, good luck! (Blackholyman, I like your last one)
