Wikimania Design

Wikimania_2006_A

Gorgeous!!! [Er, that's as in the Wikimania design is lovely, I'm not calling B4 gorgeous. At least not in this forum. Er, not that he isn't fine looking or anything. Ugh, I'm gonna give up while I'm ahead.] Why book spines instead of something more wikiesque? jkbaumga 21:50, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

J, thanks! See graphic C for a "wiki" design. B4 23:09, 31 January 2006 (UTC)
  • j whistles Nice! 23:19, 31 January 2006 (UTC)
Yep, very nice. and it respects the Wikimedia visual identity guidelines, whereas Image:Wikimania_Badge_125x125_C.png, Image:Wikimania_Badge_88x31_B.png and Image:Wikimania_2006_I.png don't ;-) A way to change that would be to have, in the long one, the Wikimedia logo on white background, and the faded logos a little bit the way you did it for the one with the lexicon.notafish }<';> 14:53, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

Wikimania_2006_C

I am not so keen on putting Wikipedia and Brockhaus in a direct situation of competition on a visual. Wikimedia has an excellent relationship with Brockhaus, I don't think it's working in that direction to have such a design. notafish }<';> 14:53, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

Yes, cf. previous IRC discussion. Brockhaus designs commented out. B4 15:26, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

A few general comments

When working on those, remember that if we want to print them as big banners in real life, the photos need to be of extremely high quality, which is not the case for the Lexicon photo for example. As general advice, I would point in the direction of graphics rather than pictures for this kind of promotional material. Cheers, notafish }<';> 14:53, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

very pretty :-) Anthere
