So, if you dislike this one, fine. However, the little icons are actually text. I used Fontfabric and Raphaël Icon-Set. Although it’s colorful, I listened to rock music whilst creating this, mostly Family Force 5 and Sixx:AM. Zombie, My Favorite Things, Skin and This Is Gonna Hurt greatly inspired it. :p All of the colors in the logo are used. They’re the colors of the rainbow – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. It took some time to figure out what indigo actually looks like.
It’s not what I really had in mind, though. It was supposed to look totally different than this. 😡 Someone had offered to make me a theme for free so they could have something for their portfolio that they were building, and I figured there wouldn’t be any harm. Unfortunately, after I mentioned it was for 6birds1, I’ve not received a reply. The background for this was supposed to be white, but
#fff was hurting my eyes. I’m also not really able to tolerate plain backgrounds for myself anymore. I think I’ve gotten too used to using patterns and such now that I can’t easily go back. #oops
It’s challenging to have this theme and actually use it. It was more challenging to make it. Lately I’ve been experimenting with different fonts. I’m tired of having Arial all of the time.
Hopefully later on I’ll be able to get away from using Georgia for the italics! Already did that! 😛 It takes time for big changes. I just want/needed something a little different. I think I’ll make a new theme in another few months. …I’m trying different things now. I want to see what I can make look like what I want and what I can’t make look like what I want. I struggle with recreating my imagination. Oddly Effy & Cassie look exactly the way I had intended for them to look. This one doesn’t, but it works for me and for now.
Also, I think that 6 tally marks + “birds” is going to be the logo of 6birds from now on. I think it’s different, creative, more unique and standout-ish than just a “6″, and overall more fun to look at. 😉
It’s taken me three years to find a different way to write 6birds that doesn’t seem so predictable and generic, but I’ve finally done it.
As for the birdie in the right hand corner, that may go later on; I’m not yet sure. I’m also not sure of where I found it originally, as it was in a file folder on my lappy. :p
Next, I hope to learn how to do the
onClick textarea stuff (with “Name” in it and disappearing when it’s clicked, etc.). :p
- I understand to an extent that during that time 6birds was practically a graveyard, but still. :L I have been planning this merge for a long while (since about June/July); I just was trying to keep it secret for as long as possible. ↩
