    Here's a variation and improvement (and corrected spelling :lol: ) version of the Circle + Box one. I smoothed the box and circle outlines a bit.

    Here's another I knocked up that could be used on a motherboard box or something.

    EDIT: Yet another variation.

    Agg, I have a question.
    Will these be printed and stuck to (example - motherboards) boxes by a manufacturer/retailer, or are you personally going to print out labels and stick them on the boxes for review purposes?
    This would mean that many designs (perhaps mine included) must be edited. I have noticed that many use fading and overlays that may/may not print particularly well (again, me ;) ).

    If so, would you like people to submit a 'hacked' version of their image, to allow for crisper printing, along with one for online reviews???


    -crash

    BTW: cheers autoexec - I'm gunning for a coffee mug or something :D

    my vote is for Gigitt !! very simple, clean, and very easily eye-catching and noticable at the end of reviews and the sides of boxes

    Good Work !!

    I call this the GOLDEN GIT award, the more Golden Teeth the better the product.

    Of course not all products are good, so a for those that don't stack-up, they get the DIRTY BASTARD AWARD,
    the more Black Teeth the worse the product.

    if you are actually printing out any of these images, you need to turn off all AA especially in the text, I found that printing AA images especially on a small scale just = fuzzy images.

    I went to SNAP printing and he showed me some guy's work and it was all fuzzy around the text and stuff and he was explaining how his work is better than the home made stuff. I was like yeah he needs to turn off anti-aliasing...the guy was like "err what's anti-aliasing?" duh and he works in a print shop.

    so really just keep the jaggies in, on screen it don't look as good, but on hard copy, most of the colour printers will prefer aliased stuff to define the edges better.

    On a side note, what do you guys use to create your images in? I'm guessing photoshop is the fav :)

    fad your designs are just awesome. very nice indeed.

    your transparencys seem to work for me
    Icarus those are pretty sweet too having them rotating like that.

    and nEoLIthIc's designes have grown on me. I quite like them now.

    When it comes time for any of these to be printed I'm sure Agg will request either a vector or high dpi raster image, however for the purposes of posting in a forum, trying to impress ppl with one’s l337 skills, anti-aliasing is a necessity otherwise you get 200 replies from ppl telling you the text and edges look like crap.

    I used 3Ds Max 4 for my pics.

    Oh... I read that these are going to be maybe stickers... so I have again made it simple and bright!

    Depending on how you are making the stickers... as at work we are charged for the number of colours used on our stickers... you keep the number of colours down to a minimum... well I have used 2 on a white background.
