Discworld Forums on Dreams...

Postby Jan Van Quirm » Tue Jun 22, 2010 1:03 pm

Nearly ready to set the Discworld RP forum up properly over on DreamWorlds and I've been doing some 'branding'. :lol: So here's a preview for the most discerning Discworld forum on the planet,
so I can get some informed feedback from more fans than we have over there atm... :wink:

Same central image but I can't make my mind as it's been Feegled somehow... :roll: Which background colour do you think works best?

CORAL

Image


FEEGLE RED

Image



PURPLE

Image


LILAC

The lilac is much more subtle and less 'in-your-face'. :D

...but it's Jan you're talking about Tony. :lol:
I thought "in your face" was her trade mark. :lol:
Anyway, I'm banned. :(

I totally agree with Tony, I absolutely like the lilac one best. It's relaxing and dreaming :P
:D
I especially don't like the red one because it's too aggressive.

Lilac for sure.
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

Erm... remind me how Feegles are again? What's that? Shrinking violets?! :shock: :lol:

I've used muted purples rather a lot on the site which is why I was looking more at the 'solid' colours which are samples of Rob in fact (hair and skin obviously).

Lilac'd work better if I had it at both ends... :? I don't 'do' red at all in general, it just seemed more appropriate in this case. :lol:

OK - let's see if we get anyone else out of the lilac bloc :P

As for this tripe :roll:

Jan. of the colors you have, I go with Sjoerd on Lilac as 1st choice, then Coral. However, I rather liked this color (Light Sky Blue) as a background. I've done it in this bold large so you get a better idea of the shade.

Sky blue was an option as well as that'd key into the 'Mort' background area - I think I'm just fed up with my usual colour palette and wanted something more lively and 'ripe' to go with Discworld more in general, it seems to want a bouncier feel and yes - it is in your face at times... :wink:

This is what I have for the other 2 'World' forums, which was done on 'emotional' tone and I was happy with straight away and a 'quick fix' one I did before we even opened for Discworld.

This last one (it's Eric to stop everyone wondering :) ) wasn't the full concept as I wanted Paul Kidby's characters with a Josh Kirby background so the image I've put together I'm more or less happy and can tinker with the colour a bit (with Paul's anyway) so there's not such a clash which is currently happening I think and why for me aesthetically the red works best atm as its more balanced visually and 'action-packed' :P

What I'm also trying to do there is to get the serials represented more or less, so Death's there with a wizard of sorts but no History Monks - I'm happy with the Kidby side of it, but for Kirby I can get more images from the estate if anyone's got a better idea (Mort I got from his website and they didn't have a vast range on there) as the PR woman I spoke to was v. helpful and said she could let me have quality images to use.

Well if you want "lively" - how about Magenta? :lol:

I have an insurmountable pathological aversion to 'powder' and shocking pinks except for use in ironical circumstances or where an unavoidable statement must be made... :oops:

Discworld is not and never will be pink, dress it up in whatever tonal description you wish :wink:

I'll go for the sky blue for first choice, but the lilac is gorgeous also.

I'm in favour of the Feegle Red option, but if that one isn't possible my run-off vote is for Sky Blue.
