Linux Mint Logos

Postby Jernau » Fri Mar 28, 2008 5:05 pm

I created versions of the standard and KDE Linux Mint logos for some wallpapers I made and I thought I'd share them here just in case anyone might find them useful:

Though i am (unfortunately) no graphist guy (trying to help in different ways :wink: ),
wouldn't it be nice to put them as svg files for others to work with those ?

Just a thought...

Unfortunately all the special effects I applied to the logos were done in a bitmap tool not a vector one (i.e. I created them in Photoshop not Illustrator).

Though you're right that SVG is generally a better format for logos, so I'm not sure if these PNGs will be useful to anyone.

Here's my attempt at vectorizing the logo;

Maybe someone else can use this?

This is a great idea!
I uploaded my chromed logos for download.
I based these two on Jernaus logos - a great artist he is!

Thanx!
I've been thinking about the XFCE & Fluxbox edition as well, I'll see what I can come up with if I can find the time...

PNG versions of my plastic versions of the official Linux Mint logos - Main and KDE edition, both in a zipped archive with transparent background.

They both use the main version of the logo.
I don't think I would change that, but would still like to see what you come up with.
Like your wallpapers too.

Thanks!
Is there's any particular look of wallpaper or any other type of artwork you want for the XFCE-edition, just let me know, and I'll give it a try.

Hey Zwopper, the chromed mint logo's never appeared in the .zip file, two files were empty after I extracted them (just a tiled background).

Great work on your logos Zwopper - they look fantastic! :)

Here is my 'version 2' of the logos:

This is the one I have been using for all of my recent wallpapers. I hope somebody finds them useful.
