Working on a new icon for the next incarnation of Gospel Library. Thoughts?
about 1 year ago
I really love the texture on the current icon. I'd say keep that. It really reminded me of my whole history with church's BofM standard texture.
I think the texture is good, but I like the "leathery" look of the current one, looks like as @Kyle Wayne Benson mentions looking like the standard texture which is relatable. one of the biggest "taboo's" of using electronics especially in church, is it's not the feel of the real book, so I like the current texture how it still has that similarity visually.
I agree with the comments above regarding texture. However, have you tried using the current leather texture in a more subtle way?
I like the idea of a bookmark, but this looks nothing like the standard "ribbon" bookmark. Wonder if the ribbon could come out from under the cover and fold over the top? Might be too much, but I wonder.
@Nick Well said, my friend. I'd miss the leather texture.
Agree that the leather texture is needed, but maybe not as much comes through on the foil? Also love the touches on the bookmark with the little wrinkles. The thing that bothers me is the curl's not working well for me. Maybe have the bookmark take up more of the space made as it curls up or have the cover react a bit more to the curl. (darker shadow or something behind it perhaps.) It'd be fun to have a well known verse peaking through...
I like the ribbon in the bottom right, but as mentioned before by others, keep with the leather texture. Also if you work with the software development I would suggest adding a feature so you can read the scriptures like an iBook book, especially the page curl feature.
