''Sorry, I feel these designs look cheap, good idea but I don't like the background effect, the colours are also unrelated to ubuntu's new branding'' :(
=== Muscovy's Design ===
I'll make the rest if anyone likes the design. I think the banner should show off the new wallpaper.

=== Silviu Radu's Design ===
I just wanted to keep it simple and in the same contrast as the new brand graphic.
I also can do the rest ;).

[[MTeck]]: This is my personal favorite. It mixes into the new design very well. The only thing I'm not sure about is the big IS the day it's coming out.
[[Silviu-Ionut Radu]]: I have made some other versions for the Coming soon! label. Thank you for your opinion [[MTeck]]

=== Jeff Stone's Design ===
Building on Muscovy's design, I used the official logo and added a tiny gnome-terminal. I've included the GIMP .XCF for easy changes

{{attachment:ubuntu-countdown-29.jpg}}
{{attachment:ubuntu-countdown-1.jpg}}

=== Marc Stewart's design ===
Also uses the new aubergine/orange/white palette, together with the open font [[http://www.campivisivi.net/titillium/?page_id=2|Titillium]]—to reflect this release's emphasis on light, and for its wonderful legibility—for everything except the new logotype.

Alternate forms with the URL and aubergine background:

'' ''
Thanks, Muscovy. That's definitely a way to add to the aubergine version. To make it more consistent with the light source being at the top left (with 'ubuntu'), I've flipped and slightly cropped the wallpaper:

{{attachment:lucid_countdown_marc_stewart_29h.png}}
[[attachment:lucid_countdown_marc_stewart_1h.xcf]]

[[MTeck]]: This is my second favorite. I think the link when it's out is out of place and the numbers seem very narrow and out of place. I think wider numbers would look much nicer.

==== Inspired by the new site mockups ====

Having looked again at the [[Brand2|brand wiki pages]], I've created these based on the post-it images used for the fridge The "10.04" is copied from the same mockup ("Announcing Ubuntu 10.04 LTS: The Lucid Lynx") for type matching.

I have the rest of them ready and can upload them if anyone likes them. I was not sure which "it's here" to use so i uploaded them both and you can pick which one looks better.

Hi all! Ubuntu user for 3+ years and looking for more ways to contribute to the community. Here is my first banner set, and working on one more.

{{attachment:ubuntu-banner-soon.png}}
{{attachment:ubuntu-banner-here.png}}

ALT version with orange "Ubuntu"...
{{attachment:ubuntu-banner26ALTT.png}}

I have used several of the new pictograms which could be presented each day as I did above, or change every 4 days from one to the next. My overall idea was to: 1) keep it simple, 2) use the key colors of orange and purple, 3) use a white background to promote the new theme of light.

I'll finish up with my mostly orange theme idea...

{{attachment:orange-banner30.png}}
{{attachment:orange-banner-soon.png}}
{{attachment:orange-banner-here.png}}

The "coming soon" banner has a spice of purple in it, but I think I prefer the all orange look of the "it's here" banner.

--------------------------------------------

Another idea...

{{attachment:light-banner-30.png}}
{{attachment:light-banner-24.png}}
{{attachment:light-banner-soon.png}}
{{attachment:light-banner-here.png}}

The lighter orange and purple are easy on the eyes. Could always mix and match the best of my ideas for a final design.

Countdown banners for Ubuntu 10.04

Post your ideas for a countdown banner here. Guidelines are:

  • width: 180px
  • height: 150px
  • optimized png, gif or jpg, or
  • iframe containing interactive content (using static html, css, js and images - no PHP)
  • no flash - must work perfectly with only free software

A successful implementation will countdown the days from the Beta to final release. This means 28 images numbered 28 - 1 plus one for day 0 that says "coming soon" and one more that says "it's here" (30 images total).

For reference see the JauntyCountdownBanners

Post your drafts and mock-ups here along with any extra information you feel is useful then send a message to the web presence team mailing list so we can discuss it.

A few of the best will be selected to be syndicated from www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/countdown and one of the best that harmonizes well with the Ubuntu website colors and look will be shown on the Ubuntu.com homepage.
