Hi folks,

Could you please create Shoes 4 logo icon?

128 x 128 size and a .png file is wanted.

Thanks,
ashbb

512x512 would be more future proof - that's the recommended icon size for 
operating systems like Mac OS these days (with the coming age of doubled 
DPI displays)

I think we should do SVG or something similar - if we have the raw
file (and if its vector) we won't run into problems in the future if
we suddenly get super high res MacBooks or whatever.

hey folks,

  here's something i had kicking around:

  http://lljk.deviantart.com/art/shoes4-icon-idea-304113194

  it's pretty rough, and not the right size/format/whatever, but that can
be worked out if there's interest in using it.

  if not, give me some ideas of what you'd like, and i'll see what i can
do...

It's really unfortunate that we have such a low-quality classic Shoes icon.

  i agree completely.
  would folks like to see 4 shoes in this icon?  i guess being shoes4, that
would make some kind of sense, though when we get to shoes8 it might get a
bit messy ;)

  anyway, let me know your ideas, i'll be happy to make a few mock-ups and
see what everyone thinks...

I like the idea of a vectorized version (so we can reproduce at any size) 
of the current icon. I don't think we need a new icon.

Hi Wayne,

Thank you for creating! Looks nice. :)
But look at snapshots on this page: http://vgoff.posterous.com/
It appears at the top-left corner of the window at least in Windows.
So, it may be not easy to recognize. ;-)

That's a good point. Maybe the thing to think about is removing all but 
one shoe and using the number. That way when it becomes Shoes 5, the four 
can get removed and 5 can go there. I know there is legacy with things, so
I didn't really want to change much, but the garish colors could also be 
improved, which could also help.  I'll try to crank out a few ideas over 
the next few days.

I think it's kind of a mistake to plan for a new icon with every version 
release. What if we just work on polishing up the SVG version of the 
current icon?

I agree. No number in icon is better, existing icon is nice and unique. I 
think why did a good job with it. :)

hey folks,

   just a couple of ideas...

  http://postimage.org/image/uxb3ztsvv/

  http://postimage.org/image/lgwyvjegn/

  the second one is super simple, which might make it look a bit clearer
when small.  and yes, that's my shoe ;)
