Icon design

  • Hey there,

    is anyone here good at designing icons?
    I have a new extension ready for Opera's catalog, but it's missing an icon.

    I'd like to see a push pin that got additionally fixed with some tape or alike. Sth. along the lines of this:

    (Doesn't have to look exactly like the sketch. It's just there to visualize my intend.)

    Icon should be colored and sized 128*128.

    Anyone interested in lending a hand? :ninja:

    I wouldn't use such an UNRELIABLE extention*:lol:*

  • I won't make you.

  • Nothing personal*:)*

    It would be simpler if you described what your extension's meant for. :)

  • I linked the extension above now.

  • You should go to deviantart, it is easy to find an icon designer there.

  • I should suggest a Reißnagel. Why such tapes? A german Reißnagel fixes very strong ;)

    Do you need a 3D icon (bee seen from side) or a flat one?

  • Well, the extension is called "StrappedPin". It nails down pinned tabs to the site you pinned. That's why the tape and the push pin. (I thought about a pin pinning another pin, too, but that doesn't fit a squared icon very well...)
    I don't really care if it's a Reißnagel or any other pin and I don't care either if it's flat or 3D as long as it looks nice and represents the extension's idea ;)

  • Christoph, have you considered renaming the extension to Page Locker or something similar? I think it'd represent better its functionality and a simpler icon would suffice.

  • "Page Locker" is missing the information that it applies to pinned tabs only. (I initially had a page action to en/disable this extension on any tab and enabled it by default in pinned ones only, but Chromium does change tab's IDs at will when restarting the browser and there's no way to match these settings thereafter :faint:)

    I'm open to renaming the extension though until it's published ;)

  • "SuperGlue"?
