New Category Icons


Followers 5

Recommended Posts

HELP! The Free Community Book Exchanges category is in need of an icon. I'd like it to be clean and crisp and not a shrunk down image. I like the quality of the Insect Hotels icon.

 

Anyone want to create one and post it here? I'm embarrassed saying this because I'm a graphic artist but changed jobs and don't have the software nor the time to mess around with creating one.

 

Thanks!

I'M STILL NEEDING ICONS FOR MY TWO CATEGORIES: Free Community Book Exchanges and Dated Architectural Structures Multifarious... Anybody interested in creating a couple of cool icons for these?

 

Thanks!

 

:)

what do you think?

honestly of course :anibad:

any suggestions?

 

I love them! Perfect! Now how do we get these as category icons? I also need an icon for the new Feed the Animals category. Want to try this one too?

...Ok, let me host them on geocaching server:

They are good, I would change the colour of the "Book exchange" icon a little bit. The green is too loud, the colours should fit to the existing icons. Well done! :grin:

Okay, feel free to finetune them as you wish .. thank you! :rolleyes:

Maybe someone, who is handy with icons, can take a look at this example for our Rijksmonumenten - Dutch National Monuments group.

 

This is the new official sign, created in 2014 by the Dutch government for the Dutch National Monuments.

It's an Off-white plate with orange corner.

 

Grtz & Thx John.

Hi dreamhummie.

I'm no expert in pixel design but I decided to try and this was what I have achieved:

Very nice razalas, thanks. :lol::laughing:

I like the bricks on the side also, very very good.

Is it possible that the black text may be a bit higher,

and the orange patch look more like triangle?

 

I tried it with paint but messed it up.

Greetings and thanks.

John.

 

I tried to make the changes you suggested:

I have been trying to create some icons that are missing in the new categories, and here they are:

 

Graves of Unusual Deaths

Draw Wells

or

cd5e31e7-df9b-4e05-9a25-cdc0d64a3604.gif An alternative version.

 

Feeding the Animals

c3e32311-d42b-4367-b8fe-ee5c2e147b38.gif A few posts ago lumbricus suggested to use the icon of the Petting Farms and Zoos category, I tried to create another so the category have a unique icon.

 

Historic Transformer Sub-Stations Buildings

or

ddbab7d4-5412-400c-8fbc-1c67a728b172.gif An alternative version.

 

UNESCO Biosphere Reserves

or

ea9f888f-82ea-42e8-9198-8c50b658d013.gif An alternative version.

 

Timelines

or

880c7b52-df7b-455f-8c09-6155c41f635d.gif An alternative version.

 

What do you think of the icons (or the alternative versions)? :)

Great ones! All of them!

 

I prefer the second version of the transformer station icons.

 

For draw wells I like the first one more, but maybe that is geographically biased, they look more like that where I live.

 

I am unsure for UNESCO. The first one fits better to all the rest of the icons, but it is not clear that it is about biospheres and not heritage sites. The second one is clearer in this respect, but the style is a bit different.

I have worked in some more of the icons that are missing.

 

The Off-Leash Dog Areas, Dog Friendly Hotels and Dog-Friendly Restaurants use the same icon that is the Animals department icon dog.gif.

 

Kept the same style and based on the existing icons i created this ones:

88a754ff-02ed-4a02-b6d0-4503f422d1f8.gif Dog Friendly Hotels

8528bfb0-152e-4227-8924-175c83551c23.gif Dog-Friendly Restaurants

cf90c113-664b-43de-adec-cc1467697350.gif Off-Leash Dog Areas

 

The Bed and Breakfast, Lighthouse Bed and Breakfasts and the Recommended Accommodation use the same icon that is the Lodging sub-department icon BB.gif.

 

Again kept the same style and based on the existing icons i created this ones:

332ae8d1-799d-4e56-bb05-20eb762816c0.gif Bed and Breakfast

7213862f-a5db-4dd0-8c51-60b77e765b67.gif Lighthouse Bed and Breakfasts

3073acdb-f479-41cb-9875-cb2642a069f9.gif Recommended Accommodation

 

What do you think? :unsure:

Hi razalas,

 

nice. First about the dog head. I would like to see the same head like our exiting dog has (at the moment it looks a little bit different). If so, the Dog Friendly Hotels would be okay. For the Dog-Friendly Restaurants we have to think about another idea, 'cause this looks not very dog friendly, more like a restaurant which serves dogs, sure in China you would find some. :laughing: Off-Leash Areas is okay, but again I would like to see the 'old' dog in the green.

 

Bed and Breakfast -> good

Posted Image Lighthouse Bed and Breakfasts -> good

Posted Image Recommended Accommodation -> Can you make the hand a little bit smaller, just a little bit?

 

Thanks for your work!

Hi lumbricus,

 

Thank you for your comments, about the dog head i have used the existing dog head took it from here pet_cemetary.gif, do you think I should try to put the head of the complete dog?

 

About the Dog-Friendly Restaurants now that you mentioned it seems a bit a restaurant which serves dogs :blink:

 

The Off-Leash Areas I used the dog from the dog sautes icon, i have tried now the other dog f80efc97-a4fc-4cda-a449-f01cbf0ab8fc.gif better :D

 

And The Recommended Accommodation with the hand a little bit smaller cda2b516-2389-4b61-b9d0-e9af16765b71.gif

Now I know why I don't like the dog head, it's a dead dog head... :yikes: from the pet cemetery. Please try to get the head of the complete dog. Thanks!

 

Off-Leash is perfect now, also the Recommended Accommodation looks good now.

 

Thanks again!

We need another new category icon for our newest category Bobsleigh Chutes and Mountain Slides.

Maybe someone can create one. Thanks!!

 

I have tried to create an icon showing a chute on a hill but all my attempts were a failure, the i saw a sign in the picture on the category description and, as always maintaining same style and based on the existing icons, i have created this one:

What do you think?

Looks a bit like a sledge. But will be OK. Can be uploaded.

Thanks for it!

This is a great icon MountainWoods, how about adding Blue Eye Cemetery to the category. :D Remember NO original photographs.

Not sure what you mean by that. I recently waymarked a Blue Eye Cemetery, but the two photos in the waymark are originals. One of them even has my wife and our car in it. Can't do that by armchair.

 

I guess I'm missing the point.

"I found FindAGrave through the Waymarking hobby. See http://www.Waymarking.com. I have contributed many Waymarks to the Worldwide Cemeteries category using information I got from FindAGrave."

 

It was a joke, I found this profile and made the connection. I am also a contributor to FindAGrave and I have actually visited Blue Eye, MO. I saw you have two requests pending. Touché
