Surprisingly, I'm finding that the more subdued greyish one pops more than the bluefisher.

Looking forward to anything else you can think up!
Thanks asqwerth, your welcome, I have plenty more to come, just need the time and the creative side to become one ;)

I also like the greyish one. It feels more 3-dimensional to look at here. :thumbup: :happy:

antechdesigns, I have a request for WP:

- surface/background is a darkish matte grey with corrugated cardboard texture
- MX logo only (no words) in the centre surrounded by a circle, a bit like this
crunchbang-decrustification-services.png
but the circle thickness need not be so thick (unless you want to add the words "MX Linux" in normal block letters)

- colour of logo and circle is a vintage cream/yellow or a very light grey. Not clean white. But I don't need the tattered and torn look of the pic above.


I'm going for the crunchbang #! look.

Thanks!

Background - something like this

http://www.photos-public-domain.com/201 ... d-texture/

but dark greyish? (lighter = #37474F , darker = #333333 )

If the centred graphic is too complex, then just have the MX logo within a simple circle.

Is this near what you had in mind? I know you did not want the faded logo, but this one looks a lot better than the non faded, However if you want me to post the other one, I will, let me know ;)

Wow, that's actually pretty cool! :number1:

I think I know what you mean about the faded logo, since a too-solid logo will look strange on the old-looking, multi-level background.

Keep the non-faded logo in reserve for now. I have a cleaner/smoother cardboard texture which I can post later, which you can use with the non-faded logo. Thanks so much!

Haha, that's just a really magnified pic of corrugated cardboard where you have exposed the curvy bit within the 2 sandwiching flat sheets.

Corrugated cardboard texture that focuses on the flat sheet itself looks like:

This is a really nice pic but the creator on deviantart requires attribution/credit and I was too lazy to ask that of antechdesigns.

Actually, until antechdesigns asked me for a sample pic he could use, I had no idea there were so many webpages displaying pics of different cardboard textures. And lots of them require credit to be given.

BTW, tascoast, I really liked your screenshot using the greyish "Abstract" wallpaper. It's a really nice colour for the MX default theme.
