You can wait a bit more. We communicate the current design back to DIF now to see if they ask for changes regarding the name/branding.


Ok. we got a green light from the DIF about the branding and design.

@cameralibre you can wrap it up then. Still a small Logo is missing - the ones above from me are a good start.

And I wonder, if in that design now (A) the OSCEdays Logo could be green.


Personally I prefer it with them both purple, it seems a little off-balance with the logo in green:

Does the small logo have to be perfectly square, or just square-ish?
here it is perfectly square:





Great. I think you are right. Both in purple is better.

Nope. The small one does not have to be a perfect square – although it would be cool, if you provide a file that is – just add a bit of white space on the right edge - this makes it easier to use it on the forum (resizing)

The small ones you added are good! Only problem is, when it gets really small - ‘CIRCULAR CITY’ is not readable anymore. Any idea how to solve/improve that?

Not saying this is better – but maybe you can test something like this?

Update: Ah, just returned to this page. I think it is good enough. So, job done. Thanks Sam. Good job.



Hi Sam, can you provide the Slider and the Squares (all or A & C) with white background and also with transparent background & upload here and in the design folder. thx.


Cool, the SVGs and PNGs can now be found under OpenLabs in the Design Files folder.


Are you cool, if they are shared under CC-BY (Attribution To @cameralibre) or do you prefer CC-BY-SA?

I generally switched to CC-BY with most of my stuff and I think in the case of this collaboration it might make sense for OSCEdays too.


Ah, last comment: Could you share the color code of the DIF purple?


yeah, no problem, CC-BY is fine.

the DIF purple is #9c6bdb - here’s a technique I only recently learned for finding out the hex code for a colour from a website:

  1. open the inspector in Firefox (Ctrl+Shift+i, it might be Cmd+Shift+i on a Mac)
  2. click on the little coloured circle next to a hex code in the CSS rules to bring up the color picker, and click on the little ‘eyedropper’ icon at the bottom:
  3. now move your mouse over the website and it will magically reveal the colour under each individual pixel!


of course, this also reveals that strange things happen when taking screenshots, editing the image and re-exporting… what I just posted is no longer #9c6bdb
