So these people are lacking in the ol' creative market it seems... They all look basically the same, with a different pair of overalls.. And ALL of them chose the first two.. I sent them like almost every screen shot from the websites you posted above.

Alex,

Do you have something that might fit the popular two-color format that folks seem to like for their social media lineup?

Alex,

Take a look at http://www.nwedible.com/

See the social media icons across the top? What would we have to put into that lineup?

Something I was thinking about paul, is that I feel like each website that has a style of icon different from the normal blue facebook icon or red pinterest icon, probably has their own way of converting the icons to look that way. Ya know what I mean? It's not like facebook converts their icon to look like the ones at http://www.thegreenhorns.net/..The people of greenhorn had to find someone to make them look like that. So maybe if we just give every site our basic icon, they figure out how to match it to their others?

That is true.

I think that we need to come up with a pretty simple/basic icon that can be easily converted. It seems a basic two color icon. Alex's icon is a big improvement, but I think we need to follow the trend of two color stuff.

Yeah I agree. Strictly two tone will work best. Might have to give up the dirt then.

I choose #3!

That's it! That's the winner! Hot diggity dog!

Okay, so what would our "normal" icon look like? And how does it fit into a variety of other "social network schemes"


From the earlier post:

Scenario 224) http://www.patternliteracy.com/ (toby's site has one facebook link near the top) --- maybe we could have something similar just below it.

Scenario 225) http://www.thegreenhorns.net/

Scenario 226) http://www.permaculture.co.uk/

Scenario 227) http://www.homestead.org/

Yay!! The duke has chosen! What a frickin relief! Alex you are a god send. But yeah, should the "normal" one have a green background? Or would that make it hard to tell what the overalls are?

Here are a few options.. What do you think?

http://brinkoffreedom.net/:


As you can see, this one is a bit hard to make out at this small, but if you look at the youtube icon on brink of freedom's page, you can barely tell what it is too..

http://www.groworganic.com/:



http://pantryparatus.com/:

That looks very pixel-ish. Maybe they are not familiar with anti-aliasing?

I don't know. The one before this was even more pixel-y and so I asked them to change it and this is what I got..

I like the close-up of the top of the overalls A LOT - however, when it gets too small - it kind of looks like a demented rabbit or dog (pocket is the mouth). Which isn't bad, per se, but it might be confusing? Or perhaps I am simply demented and therefore see other things as demented.

And now I cannot unsee the rabbit...
