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.

Submissions

Florian Hubers's Design

Brandon Ferringer's Design

I will have the rest of them ready if anyone likes the design.

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 Sad :(

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

Silviu Radu's Design v2

As my first version, only with a bit of changes Big Grin :) And for this one I have used only a free font (Dejavu).

MrAndrzejak: I really like this. Its in my top faves. If the top 80% background had more purple in it I would like it even more!

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

Marc Stewart's design

Also uses the new aubergine/orange/white palette, together with the open font 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:

lucid_countdown_marc_stewart_its_here_url.png lucid_countdown_marc_stewart_coming_soon_alternate.png

The .xcf file for GIMP (including all the days and alternate colours) is also attached.

Here's a simple modification I made to use the wallpaper.

lucid_countdown_marc_stewart_1g_muscovymod-example.png lucid_countdown_marc_stewart_1g_muscovymod.xcf

  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:

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 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.

A mockup of this countdown banner in use on the new-look fridge is attached, along with the .xcf for GIMP.

Ty VandeZande's Design

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.

MrAndrzejak's Design

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.

ubuntu-banner30.png ubuntu-banner29.png ubuntu-banner28.png ubuntu-banner27.png ubuntu-banner26.png ubuntu-banner25.png ubuntu-banner24.png ubuntu-banner-soon.png ubuntu-banner-here.png

ALT version with orange "Ubuntu"... 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...

orange-banner30.png orange-banner-soon.png 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...

light-banner-30.png light-banner-24.png light-banner-soon.png 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.


Using the new install designs in the background....
