Artwork concept for Chakra

Hi everyone big_smile

In my personal blog  i'm making many concepts for a new artwork or similar for Chakra. The Malcer's work and the new artwork Heritage is really nice, but i think in a refresh look, Caledonia has many years of development and Malcer is retired, could be a possibility for new ideas on artwork wink . I make concepts for the web of Chakra, refine the logos and new plasma and icon theme. I will try to be quickly in this post

1.- Branding of Distro.
The full album can be found on imgur.

If you seen the webpage and the OS, the logos arent equal, and some elementes (the shield icon) are maked in 2012. I think in unified the design and update it.

i Think in have "Standard" colors, make a new shield logos, and add new shield mono logos. The text logo keep it, but updating the colors. Unified the logos is necessary.

my logo proposal is the last right

and the mono logos

For the social networks like twitter the idea is use the colour logos like this

And for the news section has a background like this image

i think in clarity and descriptive concepts


2.- Plasma theme and icon theme
The full album can be found on imgur.

Caledonia/heritage is nice, but has many years with us. Malcer is retired and his ideas are gone. Could be a time for renew the plasma theme, new ideas for match with new branding and new times of Chakra. My proposal is called "Project Mapu" (the name will change)

Mapu in Macpuche Culture (Chile and argentina) means earth, the projet name represents new artwork base for next releases. The Plasma theme i whink in translucent black panels (85%) and new systray icons, more simple and a new menu icon (the mono white logo). Look at this.

In my personal opinion, i dont like the big systray and make other option of the same theme with 14px icons, but may be conflict with legacy systray icons (telegram, steam, etc)

To match the set, i will donate for Chakra my icon set, called "El General" (the name will change too)... i make a chakra adapted version called "El General Heritage" and is here

Re: Artwork concept for Chakra

What I can say...  amazing work Fabián! I like everything you did, from the logo, the plasma theme + icons and the website mockup. I like the color you've chosen, smoth, gray and with the chakra style.

If you want to do more there is big_smile (also mockups are welcome, I can do the code):
- sddm theme
- login screen
- grub theme
- the chakra t-shirt ahah (like: https://www.dropbox.com/s/b8n6odha7ukpu … .png?dl=0)

If the other user agree, next step is to include your artwork in our LiveISO  tongue

Re: Artwork concept for Chakra

Even if "Loomio hasn't speak yet", it would be surprising this theme doesn't come in Chakra in the near futur tongue.

So, I think it would be great you work on this csgib.

I'm happy to see these kind of contributions again in Chakra, so thank you guys!
