New Category Icons

Recommended Posts

Again we need new category icons for the 2 newest categories.

Advertising Columns (this should be easy)

Watershed Markers and Monuments (maybe some sign like the white one of the example pictures in the category description)

So it's time for the pixel artists! I can't wait to see your proposals!

Here are the best attempts I've made so far with the required 24x 24 pixel size fot the Advertising Columns.

What is your opinion? Any suggestions to change or improve the designs?

As an officer in this category I would also prefer the second suggestion with the signal frog, it also best represents the cylindrical shape, wich is required.

I prefer the second options, too. In both categories.

Sounds to me we have found the right new icons for the two newest categoryies:

ac2.gif.db6f009683903c6935b5d2c17a22fa9a

Maybe wayfrog could upload them into the system.

So we have these two and also the "Latin American Benchmarks" icon to be upload. Thanks in advance Wayfrog.

As we have two more new categories, I tried to create two new icons for them.

To the Doves of peace there are two versions one with the usual blue background used on the sky in the icons and the other with a white background.

Great work, thank you. I would prefer the icon with a blue background because it also represents two allowed peace doves.

I've uploaded the new icons, it may take some hours until we see the changes. Thanks razalas for your help.

I like the dove with the blue background for the Peace doves - so simple and elegant, I think that is really beautifully rendered, Razalas!!

I do think the VOR waymark needs a tweak - that Vor thing looks like a martini glass to me, And we all know what happens on alcohol-soaked flights to overly-alcohol-soaked flyers YIKES - :ph34r:

Maybe use the red grid navigation radar aid instead of the big mushroom thing -- see this waymark, and look at my visit image for an idea, if you like:  http://www.Waymarking.com/waymarks/WMEDB9_LAX_North_ASR_9_Radar_Los_Angeles_CA

I also prefer the dove with a blue background (but I am not an officer).

The VOR station is not easy to identify. But I also cold not identify a real one when I first came across it, so maybe it is appropriate, I do not have a better idea. But please no radar! They are easier, but they are not the primary focus of the category and should not be represented so prominently in the icon.

For the dove I would go with sky blue, which I suppose the blue is supposed to represent.

Thanks Keith!

I also have to say that this blue fits better.

Can this icon be uploaded to our category Wayfrog?

Many Thanks!

I had thought of this kind of icon (this is a photomontage)
Because the WM must be part of a list where this kind of plate should normally be included

Now that the Chronograms category is online, I would be very grateful, if someone had a good idea for an icon. Unfortunately, I'm not creative at all. All I could do was this:

I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in creating an icon for the Romanesque Architecture category. I was thinking something like reproducing either two columns and one arch or three columns and two arches from the attached arcade illustration.

I like #1. Maybe a stronger red (like in the other Icon) would be nice, but otherwise it's perfect. Thanks a lot.

The column part looks good to me. Would it be possible to get the arch into more of a semi-circle?

Here are my best attempts to create a semi-circle arch (this is very difficult due to the limitation of 24x24 pixels): 

-With two arches: ra5a.gif.4c7a2ab2fb251f7b076d920d1bf6f02c.gif

-With one arch:     ra4b.gif.753c42e2b8931c4e15e7bf74b0929863.gif

I'm wondering if an icon with thicker lines is better than thinner in which case the icon on the left would have the advantage.

The original size is 24x24px, but there are some places, where the icons are shown a bit smaller, for them stronger lines are better. I personally prefer the one in the center.

Ok, I guess no one else will provide any additional input so let's go with this one for the Romanesque architecture category.

Anyone know how to get wayfrogs attention.  I guess that person is the one to load it onto the site, right?
