Hi Matroska Design Team !!
1. Its been quite from you people lately, i hope you didnt loose
motivation ? RathO, your arms better again ? Does anybody please find
the time to have a look at Ayaka's latest work here :
Marlena, folks, i know this must look a bit weired to you, as you are
the design team offering help to us and then all of a sudden we all get
crazy about the contribution about an 'outsider' , but this logo design
of this young Japanese guy ayaka is so simple and brilliant, we just
have to love it !!
Now, what i would appreciate a lot was if you could have a look again,
and maybe do some more variations around his basic idea, so we can
decide on a final version. Please note that Steve and myself have plans
to invest the 1200,- US$ and register this logo as a trademark or
servicemark for the non-profit organisation matroska ass. , at least in
the USA, France, UK and Germany. The organisation is still to be
founded, but we plan to make it a non-profit one, with the goal to make
matroska widely accepted, even by the movie and music industry ( a
dream, of course ). Is this acceptable for you to have a look at Ayaka's
design and play with it a bit ?
2. USF , the Universal Subtitle Format, is a kind of 'sister' project to
matroska, aiming to become to standard for subtitles in the audio/video
encoding community. They are hosted on corecodec.org as well, more
As you can see the USF homepage is very basic and needs serious
overworking. Also, even USF is in need of a logo and an icon. Anybody
interested in the job ? You would have to work with one of the biggest
pedants in the internet, the Corecodec.org founder Dan 'Betaboy' Marlin
( have a look at http://corecodec.com and http://corecoded.com and you
know his design level ;) ).
Dan is a great resource for design and his suggestions will almost
always lead to a great result, so working with him is pretty demadning,
but big fun if you like to be proud of your results in the end.
Anybody volunteering ?
Dan, do you have an idea how a USF logo could be looking like ? What did
we want to express with the logos ? Hint to the powerful
colours/effects of USF ? I have no idea, you may have noticed i am a
complete fool about good design ... LOL
