    Re: Design a Logo for XaRT

    Friend, after only three posts, you chose a truly nonsensical thread in which to contributer.

    The XaRT interface hasn't been discussed here for four years.

    Read before you post, eh?

    Re: Design a Logo for XaRT

    You're welcome, Grace and I have a suggestion for all, to help finish the look of the UI and all that:

    Keep background elements neutral in color. If you insist on a gradient, make the subtle...

    Larry: psssst. I attached one in post #130 :).

    Took me about 12 minutes to do, based on Mind's Eye, my work, your work, and some scraps we have up on this thread.

    Done.

    The logo is attached here as vector art, and I used one of Larry's color schemes. Thanks to Mind's Eye for the treatment of the "art" portion, and I believe the subordinate text is Adobe Myriad...

    Re: Design a Logo for XaRT

    Good, thanks Grace.

    Please bear in mind that when you make a presentation, you need to cater to those of us who are ignorant about coding, and also what a "finished version" looks like.

    Re: Design a Logo for XaRT

    I love the layout and the graphics.

    I hate, hate, hate the super-intense shade of blue you have currently.

    There's a zillion shades of blue you can use in the gradient. Why not something...

    Re: Interface Design and UX Thread - How our App Looks

    I like the embellishments, Rik. I'll bet the general consensus is that it's very handsome looking and might even reproduce at small sizes.

    My question would be: is the appearance of the checkmark...

    There are two things I'd like to mention from an art and a usability thing, three, actually:

    Re: Interface Design and UX Thread - How our App Looks

    Hi Eric and welcome to the discussion.

    I for one am against compromising a good UI design just because the programmers have opted for a default library of common controls to avoid using bitmaps.

    We (and you) really need to ask ourselves how the UI might scale for foreign languages (if any) and just for the number of features we'll finally have. For these reasons, I'm not sure...

    Re: Interface Design and UX Thread - How our App Looks

    I'm halfway done, I think, with a prototype that might please all, or displease the least number of members!

    It's slick and relaxing in colours.

    Be back with it 2pm EDST,

    See, in a combination such as Xart's UI layout, I think these are a very handsome combination. I think I have something similar for active motherboard monitoring, it's an ASUS, too.

    Can you think of a more appropriate screen?
