    Lightbulb Ubuntu tv is Looking graphics help

    Hello there and thanks for taking the time too read this over. So over the last couple of days I have been hacking away at ubuntu tv (good hacking not cracking) and I have made some huge I mean massive steps towards the future. I have made it so tha you can now view your photos look up your contacts use gwibber and be able too look at all your files and also be able to launch any application that you have installed. That is right you can now launch anything that is installed on ubuntu tv (which is anything in ubuntu repos or any repo you have)

    But here is the thing I am not a good graphics designer. and we need icons for launchers I have attached 3 pictures of the icons for a launcher. I am asking for help from someone to make a couple more new ones. This is a great for someone that wants to get involved in ubuntu tv but does not know how too.

    below are pictures of launchers icons

    Active


    De-active


    Focus



    Icons that are needed

    • Pictures
    • Contacts
    • Files and folder (home folder)


    Pictures to be used for Icons

    All the icons for the New launchers can be found in a number of places launchpad being the #1 place.
    also you may find icons on your system under
    Code:
    usr/share/unity/5/
    In there you will see photos like this one.

    Photo


    Contacts



    These are the icons that need to be merged to look like the ones above.


    The size of the launcher icons when done is
    120px by 120px
    the best format would be .png (I think once again not a graphics dude)

    They must look like the examples at the top of the page (Colors)

    Thanks once again for reading this and if you think that you would like to help out on this plz pm me or leave a message here Or join us on the IRC on the channel #ubuntu-tv

    Thanks again
    Joseph Mills

    EDIT
    If this is not the correct place too post this I am sorry please move to where ever you think is best Thanks again

    So they're regular icons, but done in the style of the Unity Launcher items, and corresponding to the lenses? I thought that the special items on the Unity Launcher like the Ubuntu / Dash Home button and the Application lens were actually a couple of different .png images layered together, and that the hover and inactive states acted on the different images differently.

    Are these going on the Launcher, or are they for something else?

    Yes that is kinda true but also not.As we have hacked away at this code and it is different then straight up unity.

    Just for the Launcher's
