I have a quick request...

I need four 32x32 icon images. Each icon basically represents a state. The four states are:
1) Day Time
2) Day Time Alarm
3) Night Time
4) Night Time Alarm

They are used by an alarm application and the image appears in the system tray. I attached the icons I am using now...

I really like the Day Time/Day Time Alarm icons but I have been using them for over a year now--time for a change. I like how they are analog clocks and how they show alarm/not alarm state. I just need something that looks a little more professional and consistant in appearance. What especially needs work is the Night Time Alarm. It just doesn't look convincing.

Anyone want to help me out here?

I dont work here haha.
But maybe conceptwise you could go with a clock on a sun background, night could be an illuminated dial on an eclipse type backing. Just a thought.
Maybe too close to what you already have though.

Didn't think of that actually. A sun and moon type thing with something different to it to signal an alarm. Heh, just hit me with something (whoever wants to).

I just thought of something else I should change in the code...

Alternatively you could go really hardcore and do like lunar phases if you wanted a unique hour by hour alarm system. i.e. quarter moon for 3pm, half moon for 6pm, 3/4 moon for 9pm, full moon for midnight.
(its not accurate but its just an illustrative feature haha). But that might just be a tad over the top rofl.

Hmm I just gave it a quick jot and i think it would be better done if it was abstractly depicted. Literal represenation in that small resolution doesnt work as its way too small. I think something minimalist would work better.

I tried to add code that would actually calculate the sunrise/sunset but could never get it working right.


Something like that perhaps?

Looks good, but what would change in the alarm state of it?

You could have a bright yellow moon.
Im guessing this is for system tray???

If you wanted the alarm state yellow maybe we could animate it that way to go from standard to yellow and back again, like a strobe. That would be quite nice if it was a gradual animation, and it would attract attention because of the colour contrast. You could make a couple of stars flash in the background too on and off. This is assuming we can animate it, ive never made an animated icon before.

Its 3am, time for bed lol. Gotta wake up at 8 :cool:
Hopefully someone here can assist you with this some more in the meanwhile.

If not Ill take another look into it sometime tomorrow... (read: this afternoon lol)

Correct.

The application already does that. It changes from the normal to alarm state and back every 5 seconds (default--user adjustable).


Hopefully someone here can assist you with this some more in the meanwhile.
No rush at all. I can keep using the old icons in the meantime.


I do like the solar/lunar references Maybe when the alarm is on, show a stop watch or something overlayed on to the sun/moon. That would work.


Basically, there is an audible alarm too but if for some reason the audio fails (like speakers fried), the "flashing" of the tray icon signifies to me the alarm is active.


Edit: This is what I think would work well...

Day (no transparency):
1) Sky blue background.
2) Bright sun foreground.

Night (no transparency):
1) Pitch black background.
2) Full moon foreground.

That's two of the four. The last two are the same but with an alarm clock overlayed on top--something like this but vastly simplified:
http://www.heartratemonitorsusa.com...s/compare-page-images/compare-alarm-clock.JPG

Obviously, I need to see the moon or sun behind the image of the clock...

If ya got a better idea, tell/show me. ;)

Haha ok sure, id be glad to join.

I have 4 assignments to be working on atm haha.
Ill try doing it later tonight, when hopefully ive done some more work on one that has a critique due tomorrow lol. But not right now.
Either later tonight (5 hours time) if not I can definately get it done tomorrow.

Is there anything I need to know about how you guys run the designs? Or is it just like the old PS User Clubhouse/ Sig thread?

Very close to the same. Only one difference, it's usually a team effort. I will PM you with more detail.

Thats on off for one idea. I personally dont think the stopwatch/alarm will be visible because of the low resolution, but Ill do it anyway just to give you a sample.

Day (no transparency):
1) Sky blue background.
2) Bright sun foreground.

Trying these ideas now.

Day and night more closer to your own idea ala sun/moon with alarm overlay.

Thats about as far as I can see an overlay of the clock/alarm/stopwatch going, considering the resolution/lack of detail permitted.
Feel free to bring up any ideas though. I dont feel totally satisfied with the icons produced so far, they could be so much more with a bit more thought put into them.

Let me know :)

welcome to the team! we're similair but a tad bit more formal then the club, and as jr said, it's usually a team effort. We use a network drive (called the psd drive) to store psd's and transfer files and notes between each other, we use the team's photobucket account to host artist samples and finished works. thats about the only difference, if you hit me up (i think i have you on skype or something like that) i can set up the drive for you.

Those are great but I need one of each without the alarm on it. ;)
