Not at all -just uploaded the set. Please confirm they are showing properly.
They do! I added all SVG variations (yellow & white + square & rectangular) you provided to the artwork repository.
You were added to the Enough hall of fame so other members of the community know about your contribution. If you do not want to be listed, please let me know.
wonderful! I’ll be posting here about stickers tomorrow…
Great! No I don’t mind, I’m specifically looking for design work for privacy/security projects so please keep me in mind and thank you!
Hey @dachary below are my suggestions for stickers. Please also consider the following when discussing with your colleagues and reaching your decision:
The Enough logo that was designed is already very complex, so I believe that it is best to keep it simple/straight forward as far as the stickers go.
Either choose the sticker with the logotype A1 or choose the logo symbol on its own in an octagonal sticker shape B1 (my preference) in the logo’s primary yellow color. I’m not sure if you’ve heard of http://hexb.in/ but they are the ones that a lot of tech companies (like the EFF) and I love the look/feel of them. I think it fits your brand better too…
If you are uncomfortable having the logo symbol stand on its own you could add a small note about nextcloud. I believe it’s affiliate with nextclound right? & and NextCloud’s style guide says you can use OpenSans. This avoids repeating the logo twice like your example. NextCloud in small will help anchor people if they don’t know the product and want to know more. I do not recommend adding the word enough in new typeface, as this will confuse and create a new logo. Unnecessary.
Of course it’s your decision, which is why i included so many color suggestions .
Please let me know what you want to move forward with and if you agree B1 is the one to “print”, I will create a separate file for you and upload.
Very nice It could not arrive at a better moment: I’m sitting next to @veronika and we discussed your designs in person. I showed her the design before she got a chance to read your message and … B1 has her preference. Let’s go for B1 then!
Although Enough is based on NextCloud at the technical level, it is a different project which has its own website. You are right: having the Enough name with the logo included would be too heavy. It would be nice to have the name though. What about Enough instead of nextcloud?
excellent! glad to hear the timing was good
I understand your thinking but I wouldn’t recommend it. If you decide to go with the 2.5cm/3cm stickers, the type will be small and i think visually it won’t have the same weight/sway as it would without it. I’ve looked at a lot of stickers logos and pretty much no one lists the name with their symbol. I believe that your audience who will receive your stickers will be familiar with your brand/product and it’s a nice conversation piece if it’s on someone’s laptop.
I’ve given your request a lot of thought and came up with an alternative suggestion. You could use the URL instead, enough.community is also much stronger than just “enough”. I still prefer A (just the logo) but also like the look/feel/tension of D.
Please see below and let me know what you and @veronika think and I’ll upload the final .svg for you to proceed.
Thanks for the detailed explanation, it makes a lot of sense. I trust your experience and vote for A
Wonderful, and my pleasure!! i’ve already uploaded the .svg for you - take a look and let me know if that satisfies what you need. Happy to send you the original .ai file if that helps or anything else.
The SVG file is fine, uploaded to the respository
- looking at sticker mule the only option is die cut stickers (other shapes are oval, rectangle etc.). I ordered 50 and uploaded the SVG.
- looking at printoclock for rolls of stickers (they are 5 times cheaper than sticker mule), they need a PDF. So I tried to convert the SVG with:
$ sudo apt-get install librsvg2-bin $ rsvg-convert -f pdf -o hexagonal.pdf hexagonal.svgbut… it is a black hexagon for some reason. So I tried using inkscape from the command line
$ inkscape --file=hexagonal.svg --export-area-drawing --without-gui --export-pdf=hexagonal.pdfand it looks good.
Does that sound alright to you?
They are not happy with the PDF I converted. Because:
- the size provided is wrong (it should be height 30mm)
- it is RGB and they require CMJN (is it the same as CMYK ?)
- the cut color which is currently #ff00ff must be black
I was able to change the cut color to black. But got lost trying to figure out the size & CMJN
[quote=“dachary, post:21, topic:711”]
- it is RGB and they require CMJN (is it the same as CMYK ?)
Yes! It’s just the french translation of CMYK, I believe it should be ok to use the regular CMYK profile.
I uploaded an updated .svg and .pdf. The zipfile is called enough_printoclock.zip
Please let me know if any more issues
I read the requirements on printoclock and the only thing I couldn’t find is how thick the black line should be for the cut color. Right now it’s 1pt which is the norm… I hope that won’t give you any issues but let me know and i’ll fix it for you.
Here is the StickerMule proof based on your design. Looking good. They should be delivered next week.
The PDF works fine for printocolock: it no longer complains about CMYK However… it also requires a separate PDF that only contains the 1 pixel cut. Can I trouble you with this as well?
ok, I uploaded three docs - .pdf with .75pt (1px) - let me know if that doesn’t work, illustrator was being difficult. I also include a .pdf of just the hexagon cut color and the .svg with the proper cut line stroke (1px).
Excellent: this time, with the newest files you provided it does not complain and the order was placed. Only 100 stickers to verify. This is not cheaper than stickermule but … if the result is good we can order in quantities for cheap (5,000 stickers for ~100 euros).
To be continued in two weeks time, when the orders are delivered
Sweet! please keep me posted
Stickermule batch arrived and they look good! They are a little too big but… that’s the smallest they can do. Also received a notification from printoclock that their batch of hexagonal stickers was shipped today
woohoo! I hope you’re happy with the quality, I love stickermule’s stickers for that reason Bummer about the size, but if the printoclock ones are smaller, you’ll have variety for people which is also nice!!
Yes, it is very good quality. And I knew in advance the sticker would be too big but was curious to see how it looks when printed, to compare with printocolock. To be continued!
