Countdown banners for Ubuntu 11.10
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 2 to final release. This means 21 images numbered 21 to 1 plus one for day 0 that says "coming soon" and one more that says "it's here" (24 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.
Post your mock-ups and ideas here. Make sure there's enough detail so that we can contact you!
There is a demo available (hosted on my site) here: http://corbindavenport.com/ubuntu/. If you want the code, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks for reading!!
I intend build a derivative of the Ubuntu-logo-as-a-progress-bar model using a dynamic canvas element.
The working banner (not in demo-mode,) along with assets, can be downloaded as an archive here. A completely stand-alone (albeit slightly larger) version of the banner (also not running in demo-mode) can be found here.
Please note, I have considered the release date to be 13th October, as per the current schedule. Modifying this is simply a case of changing the date parameter of the RELEASEDATE constant in the file.
Greetings from Poland! My idea of Ubuntu 11.10 countdown is a static images set - "Countdown Dots". All numbered images and Inkscape SVG source available. Contact me at: leszekp(at)gmail.com.
Greetings from Germany. Here's my idea of a countdown banner for Ocelot. The design is available as vector graphics. Contact: daniel_87(at)gmx.de

I made one entirely with HTML5 canvas. When included in an iframe it shows the small version. It dynamicly updates, if you leave it on the "progress bar" will move. The logo is slightly animated. It uses the Ubuntu-font loaded with CSS. It is cross-browser compatible (any browser with canvas support).

Inspired by the current look of the Ubuntu websites' headers, this is my "last minute" proposal. I'll try to improve it a bit in the next few hours if I get some free time, but I'm very happy I was able to submit at least one. It's not animated. I did it for the Official Banner in 10.10 and I wanted to go in a different direction.
