Bear In Heaven - Beast Rest Forth Mouth

Design by Ghava. This one’s a bit of an old one (2009), but I’ve always been fond of the minimal pixel-art look. The version I’ve posted is the animated GIF one the band has on their MySpace, which is even more awesome. Really wish I’d bought the t-shirt when I saw them live in 2010, I’ve been kicking myself ever since!

Building the custom theme design for this blog (part 7)

I’m adding Custom Links to the theme for header navigation elements. This will provide theme appearance options for three links. At first I used “Link Title 1” and “Link URL 1” as the naming structure but the options were listed alphabetically in the themes appearance options list. eg. “Link Title 1”, “Link Title 2”… then “Link URL 1”, “Link URL 2”. I wanted to keep related Title and URL fields together so changed to use “Link 1 Title” etc.

In the <head> add…

<meta name="if:Display Custom Links" content="0"/>
<meta name="text:Link 1 Title" content=""/>
<meta name="text:Link 1 URL" content=""/>
<meta name="text:Link 2 Title" content=""/>
<meta name="text:Link 2 URL" content=""/> 
<meta name="text:Link 3 Title" content=""/>
<meta name="text:Link 3 URL" content=""/> 

In the <body> where you want the Custom Links to appear…

    <div id="nav">              
        <li><a href="{text:Link 1 URL}">{text:Link 1 Title}</a></li>
        <li><a href="{text:Link 2 URL}">{text:Link 2 Title}</a></li>
        <li><a href="{text:Link 3 URL}">{text:Link 3 Title}</a></li>

Moving the Edges of Logo Design

Current TV, the media company started by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore and businessman Joel Hyatt, has launched a new logo designed by Wolff Olins and animation house GHAVA. Replacing the static pixelated identity created by Meta Design and Peter Saville in 2005 (contemporary for its time), the waving Current logo is meant to be viewed in motion, or at least to imply that it is in motion. Unlike traditional logos, the Current identity takes advantage of the technological capabilities of the broadcast medium. Dropped out of whatever background is behind it, the name undulates like a flag, leaving the borders and proportions loosely defined. The logo itself uses a familiar compressed modern gothic font and foregoes any use of proprietary colors. As flat graphics, it’s pretty simple. What makes it special is that movement isn’t used as an afterthought, but as the essence of its uniqueness.
