Movie recommendation: Extinction (2018). If you're into sci-fi, this one is worth it in my opinion.

Here are my favorite versions of this very minimalistic concept. And an impression of what this could look like as an app or on avatar.

I initially picked the color at random, but I must say I like how vibrant it is.

What do you think? Is it something that fits with your idea? We can change it to be more playful or more clean if you want.

Or if you don't like it, I can try some other things.

@anfora Then I realized that it's not really about the camera or a vase. It's about the photo's that you're sharing on the platform.

So I explored some ideas with photographs as the main focus. I have some concepts, which I will send you after work. It's incredibly minimal/simple, which I think is very powerful for a logo.

Without seeing any of the concepts, is this a reasoning you can get behind?

@anfora I have explored many ideas for an Anfora logo and I made some mockups that I'm personally happy with.

At first, I went down the path of a logo with a camera. Kind of expected for an app that is an alternative to Instagram. I tried many different approaches, but didn't really like any of them.

I also tried to come up with a design including an amphora vase, but I couldn't come up with anything that looked nice. And I don't really think it adds to the experience of the user.

I'm learning about closed #ecosystems and I made my first pond in a #jar today.

Aesthetically wise I'm pretty satisfied with the result, will see if it will really last forever.

Morning folks.

Before you do anything, take care of yourself. Get some food, drink water, meditate, make sure you have your meds, etc.

Your day will just go better if you get what you need first. Promise.

Hurt.
RT @YourNerdWonder@twitter.com @CBR@twitter.com How? Why?

This sounds like a big VIRTUE SIGNAL for GIRL POWER.

I hate that my gender is being used to up someone's ego! "Look how progressive we are for making a YOUNG WOMAN OF COLOR into a genious." She is nothing more than a object to people who state this.

Hello new #Mastodon folks! 🐘

Have you heard of the #Fediverse? 🗺️

Mastodon is the most well developed, but there are many works in progress too:

MeetUp -> GetTogether 🍻
@GetTogetherComm

...and many others.

@anfora I see you are looking for someone to help you with a logo. Do you have some ideas already?

I'm a designer. Mostly UI/UX instead of visual. But I wouldn't mind giving it a shot.

Free contribution of course.

My Twitter timeline is actually not that bad? Show more

I'm told the tester limit is now 10000 users rather than 1000. So signups are open again, since there is lots of space!

Just remember, this is still a beta! Not everything works. No content warnings, no federated timeline, no search, no autocompletion for user names, and so on.

Maarten boosted

Happy Friday, folks.

I’m glad your here and exist with me. It’s more fun together.
