Easy $10 Graphics Contest (48 hours Only) - Need 2 glass-like buttons

Discussion in 'Design Contests' started by JagoHarry, Mar 25, 2009.

  1. #1
    This is a really easy contest for you designers (I have no talent). Basically I need 2 'glassy' buttons done for me. Here are the requirements:

    The icons are to go on my website (http://tinyurl.com/c295us) on the top right where the Twitter and RSS icons are. The new icons will actually go below the Twitter and RSS icons.
    SEMrush
    Icon 1 - Represent subscribing via email

    • Size should be 75px x 75px
    • Finished button should have a 'glassy' effect to it.
    • Button design should be identical to the RSS icon that's already on the site, but with an envelope instead similar to the one below.
    • If you need to re-create the RSS icon to match, that's fine with me.

    [​IMG]

    Icon 2 - Represent that comments on the blog are dofollow (i.e. U Comment I Follow motto)

    • Size should be 98px x 75px
    • Finished button could have a 'glassy' effect to it like the RSS icon, or match the gradient cartoon style used in the twitter icon.
    • I want a completely novel variation of the icons shown below. Choose any colour you like, but it must suit the colour scheme of the site.

    [​IMG]

    $10 contest prize, contest ends 8PM 27th March 2009 GMT (UK Time). Winner paid via Paypal.

    If you want to use a screenshot of the site to show me what the icons would look like on the site, I'd appreciate it.

    I look forward to the results.
    Thank you!

    Dan

    Looks great, but was after more of a glassy effect... as in glossy.

    Nice colourful design. Just the wrong width. Needs to be 98px x 75px

    Nice try, just looks a little flat? And the envelope doesn't look right. Also, what about the "U comment, I follow"?

    Perfect appearance, colourful, glossy. But the "U comment I folllow" icons are not 75px x 98px.

    Again, appears flat. And complete the wrong size. Please see requirements above.

    Subscribe buttons - perfect. Very novel designs for the "U comment I follow" (I like the first one best). However, the size constraints are 98px x 75px as in initial post. Able to work with that?

    Perfect. However, contest is also for the "U Comment, I follow" icon. Please see requirements.

    I don't like the "U Comment, I follow". I like the insides of the buttons for the RSS and email icons, could they be vertically and horizontally centered, and also made bigger?

    I do like your attempt with the blue email/rss icons, however, they don't look quite right. I'd prefer them in white I think. Not keen on the 2nd envelope.

    Nice original ideas on "U Comment, I follow" (2nd and 3rd are best), however, it's too large. Please see size requirements in original post.

    Thanks all
    Dan
