it took me a lot of time to finally get to it but I’ve started and I’m not willing to stop now ;) Especially that for some reason antergos dropped on distrowatch, and this is unacceptable for this amazing distro.
This is the first step in the whole process and I think it’s vital to share my work at this point. I’ll be updating this post along work process.
Without further a due, here is my proposition for a new brand design for antergos:
It’s still WIP (visual guide not a logo itself). Later about what is needed to be done.
From Visual Guide (check the pdf for more):
Some mood pictures:
And a little modification to the new cnchi UI with colors and fonts from visual guide:
What else is needed (I’ll take care of nearly everything in that list except the ones I’ve marked with bold cursive). All of it is also on Trello board:
- Overall mood and feel of the design. I’m close, but not yet there.
- Website design,
- Forum design,
- Wiki design, well mostly replacing graphics.
- LightDM theme,
- Themes - for most of the DE,
Gnome themes - dark/light mode:
Wallpapers,added to Trello board.
Profile shots,added to Trello board,
- Background shots,
- Narration for social communication,
- Promo shots,
- Promo video (yes, I’ll make a commercial at the end, seriously).
So, I need help with themes for DE and LightDM. I’m quite fluent with front-end developing but GTK themes are such a pain for me that I can’t make it properly. I’ve found almost perfect theme for Gnome but it will need a little bit modifications, it’s named Matcha. I didn’t checked how hard is LightDM theming but maybe I’ll be able to make it. I can make all of it in HTML/CSS but I’ll still need someone to port it ;)
For now I’m waiting for your opinions about all of it.
