Thursday, September 13, 2012 by vStyler | Discussion: Sneak Previews

A theme I have wanted to do for a long time, never got around to it, until now.

Spent quite a bit of time on just the start menu...

Might just enter GUIC.. who knows..

Will post more as I go...

Cheers!

i like the look...especially the HAL of the top startmenu is looking tasty...
but im not a fan of the radialgradient (the zones are a bit visible) in this screenshot, i would like to see them lowered a bit in opacity , while i think they won´t be visible when it´s scaled down...Anyway very nice concept so far wonder what you will do for frames and taskbar

I don't have the critical 'eye' to be able to make suggestions, probably because I'm not a skinner.  I do know that I like this and you should go ahead and enter it in the GUIC.

'HAL' [9000] in 2001 was a quaint alphabet shift of 'IBM'.....I'd kinda use the serif 'striped' font of the 'IBM' for the 'HAL'....

Other than that....looks clean and classy...

Hmm.. do u know the name of the font Jafo? Just used the first Sci-fi font that caught my eye thus far for the preview.

 

Thanks everyone... Rolo.. the radial gradient u speak of.. is a lens flare... still working on the small stuff tho, subject to change.

A quick search says the font used was  Eurostile Bold Extended #2.

For a bit more about the panel; http://www.therpf.com/f9/hal-9000-panel-2001-space-odyssey-pg-119324/

 


Gotta love Google

One of those rare moments when I get beat to the draw by Jafo.

I think the striped font would look good on the loading screen.

That's better.  OK, the 'connection' [to IBM] might be lost on some...but then I expect so it was for many in 2001 [the Movie] as well....
