Here are some mock-ups (incl sources) for different badges the Planet
members can use for their hackergotchi.
The idea is that I'll make a template, which can be used in the future for
all kinds of events, so not just Google's Summer of Code.
- I want to make them general enough that they can be used for all kinds of
- I want to make them shiny, so people will want to wear them :D
- I will make the template in such a way that the color and text can be very
easily adjusted, also by people who never use Inkscape
- the fact that they can change the text means that the text itself must
have enough room and shouldn't have fancy effects (i.e. I wanted to avoid
curves and whatnot)
Of course, after I'm done I'll put a tutorial on the wiki describing how
people can change the badge, for Inkscape beginners.
By all means, take the source and run with it! Or if you think there's a
nice one in here, leave a comment. If nobody has any additional mock-ups or
ideas, we could maybe have a vote here on the mailing list. :)
(Personally I kind of like the ribbon from #11. It can be easily adjusted,
fits with every picture, has a lot of room for text and is "shiny" enough to
signify that there's something special about these people :) )
Example of how it'll look on the Planet:
