My idea for a "Kontact" splash-screen design. I hope it is "professional" enough. Comments are welcome. : )


v.0.2: Completely new icon-look. Used the "beauty"-globe insted of blue one, added pda and organizer, resized letter, removed text, changed Kontact-text.

Download button provides picture theming four colors (Blue, green, red and gray).

v.0.3: added .zip file for download

v.0.4: changed color saturation, reworked text.
[Note: I tried the idea of having several colors in one splash-screen, but the result reminded me of a kid's playground. So I skipped that idea due to aesthetic reasons.]

v.0.5: Added 3rd screenshot, featuring a colored globe for discussion. So, should the globe be blue or gray/crystal? Comments please.

v.0.6: Changed globes in all design-versions from gray to crystal-blue, added a gold-splash. The zip-file now contains red, green, blue & gold.png. Grey-version.png (the most beautyful one, IMO) can be obtained via ->1st screenshot-link.

Just as lovely as my desktop (which has the grey splash-screen).
I am glad that you like it (like some other guys, too). : )

The grey and the blue one look so damn good.
How about making the other things cycling around the world icon?

And how about adding animations to it (as far as this is possible)?

well... it is impossible to add animations, because this is a simple *.png splash screen for kontact. nothing more, nothing less. and even if it would be possible, it would eat up lots of memory without adding functionality to kontact. ; )

 Different globes

First of all I have to say that your splash is really awesome. But there's a tiny problem before we can consider using it in Kontact. The globe or more precisely the view of the globe. The problem is that some people might not like North America to be centered.

Would it be possible to create a few different views of the globe (centering on other parts of the world)? In Kontact we could then compose the splash from the background (probably colored according to the user's color scheme), the PIM gadgets and a randomly chosen view of the globe.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
