New logo discussion?

Hey,

I had to change the default one, because (sorry guys) its really ugly! And since I was moving from TextMate Im used to search for that violet icon within application icons I decided to use the textmate one!

So here's the preview

Hi guys,

On Linux I have a constant issue with tab switching since the existing built in icon looks so much like a terminal. Saw this thread and just wanted to put in my 2c worth

looks good, has a bit of colour and can easily be used to establish visual branding.

Yet another try... Based on this dribbble by Lindsay Mindler: http://dribbble.com/shots/317512-Sublime-Text-2-Icon

I love Lindsay's original but found that it didn't reduce well in my dock.

Ah, I love it! Very nice. I do like that subtle green detail line in Lindsay's original, but I can definitely see it getting lost & looking odd when reduced.

Inspiration from Adobe icons.
Icon used is from iconSweets2


I think that is the logo that should be used, it fits Sublime Text perfectly! No strange colours, images or type, it's simple and an evolution of the current design.

I would say that the light grey area on the left hand side should be removed, and possibly a very subtle gradient from the top left to bottom right to help curve the front of the logo, similar to the CS3-4 logos..

Image

After that, it would be useful to see it at the correct size for Windows 7 task bar and a standard OSX dock icon, to be sure that you can see the top part of the logo clearly.

Great work though, definitely gets my vote!

After looking for a replacement icon for a bit, I decided to take a stab at it myself. Used Blender 2.61 and tried out its new Cycling rendering engine, which really simplifies shader (material) creation, so it’s quite easy to get nice results. :)

You can get an .icns file and a huge PNG on Dribbble: http://drbl.in/cBaf

Hey guys,

Here's my stab at it. My eyes are pretty used to the TextMate icon, so I tried to go for something kinda TextMate-y.

Cheers!

Thank you! Finally an icon that doesn't look like Terminal and doesn't look like crap :D

Now I just need to wait for ST2 to stabilize so I don't have to keep replacing the icon every time it updates :D

I have a Ruby script I run after each release that updates ST2 with my favourite icon. It's a single command from a Terminal (which I generally have open all the time anyway).

If you're on a Mac (I really don't guarantee anything else) it's here:

https://gist.github.com/3d55b1272a126393aed5

Before the first time you run it do this:

$ fix-sm2-icon ~/Downloads/whatever.icns

This reads, encodes and embeds "whatever.icns" within the Ruby script itself (self-modifying)

Then whenever you want to fix the icon, just do:

$ fix-sm2-icon

This extracts the embedded icon in to the right place.

@shadowr,

Did you just take that pen directly from textedit's icon?
