#762 Badge for L10N Group members
Opened a year ago by shehroz. Modified 5 months ago

Badge description (like "You added a co-maintainer to a package. BFF!"):

  • You are a member of L10N Group!

Help the badges team understand what this idea is all about. If this badge is
awarded for certain kinds of activities:

1) What are those activities?

2) Who is doing them (are they packagers? translators? newcomers? veterans?
users? sponsors?)

  • Translators

3) Why are they doing them (is this a means to a different end?)

  • Because they want to be a part of L10N Group

4) When do they do them (every day? once a year?)

  • Once they are part of it, or when they join

5) How do they do them (by talking in IRC? by running commands in the console?
by using a web interface?)

  • In FAS

Lastly, do you have any ideas for artwork concepts?

  • Panda wearing Arab Thawb and holding a calligraphy pen

Hello @riecatnor . please help me review this badge design for L10N.
I tried creating an Asian Thawab , I really hope it illustrates and
explains in clear terms what the L10N stands for , I believe L10N is an
acronym for Localization .

Hi @preshy21 good first draft I am not sure I am understanding the concept of your design. Can you explain a bit what you are going for?

Meanwhile, if you are looking for concepts, I though of a couple nerdy ideas!

  1. Babel fish from hitchhikers guide to the galaxy
    https://hitchhikers.fandom.com/wiki/Babel_Fish
  2. Universal translator - from a bunch of different sci-fi stories
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_translator

Thanks!

thank you,@riecatnor will effect some changes, but I had the Asian Thawab concept in mind

Hi @ooree good first draft I am not sure I am understanding the concept of your design. Can you explain a bit what you are going for?

If you need a concept, I made some suggestions in a comment above (https://pagure.io/fedora-badges/issue/762#comment-697840)

Hello @riecatnor , thanks for the last feedbacks and corrections ,
I read through the babel fish article but I felt a simple translator Icon will explain the whole concept better.
this is a new draft , please look through it and drop your feedbacks

hello @riecatnor ,please drop your thoughts on mine too

I have seen this; actually we have requested this for l10n group members in FAS, not for i18n (like i'm not a member of i18n).

I wish if i could get a distinctive & unique badge like i requested earlier.

hI @emem thanks for getting started on this! before you move forward, I would like to discuss the concept for this one a bit further.

@shehroz what do you think about making the concept focused on the translation or international aspect versus focusing on one culture? Translation is a global activity and the badge art should reflect that in some way

Here are a couple of ideas:
- concepts I added to this comment: https://pagure.io/fedora-badges/issue/762#comment-697840
- This badge art could be adapted, as it has the calligraphic writing theme already: https://badges.fedoraproject.org/badge/novice-wordsmith-i
- Here is another translation related badge: https://badges.fedoraproject.org/badge/khmer-translation-hero-2017

Hey everyone!
I tried getting closure on one of the design tickets and thought of working on a badge ticket.
So here's my iteration, I had been following this issue and was waiting to work on this xD
went through the earlier comments and artworks by people here and was inspired by their amazing work.
I tried making the babel fish, I was really inspired by the fact behind it! (I have it downloaded but still need to read :P)
I tried my best following all the guides and rules and made the fish from scratch, yet I'm confused that:
1. the fish color is of extended color palette, I don't know if it is okay to use it
2. the background should have been green(?) as it is a membership badge, but i used blue background from the templates as it was a fish, and I saw earlier that the background could be changed according to the badge content so I wasn't sure

I chose yellow as babel fish is yellow in color, the yellow of the main palette was looking a bit dull. I will post an iteration with it too!
Looking forward to your feedbacks @riecatnor !

Hi @swast1 nice work! A couple notes for you:
- I tried opening the SVG and inkscape wouldn't open it.. any idea why?
- Make sure you are using the template correctly and exporting at 256x256 pixels
- What color blue are you using for the background? It looks close to the fedora blue but not quite? I would either use the fedora blue, or make it more like the background from this badge: https://badges.fedoraproject.org/badge/clickbait-fedora-magazine-i
- I would use a lower case "f" in the comfortaa typeface
- The orange of the fish isn't standing off the background too well, but I think when you change the color of the background that could be resolved. Either way, I think the stroke on the fish needs to be increased a bit
Looking forward to your next draft!

Hey @riecatnor , Thank you so much for the feedback!
yes i cannot open it too, I don't know why
I am a bit confused about the size of the badge, I guess I have figured it out but let me know incase it is wrong

The blue I used previously was from the backgrounds template so I thought it might be correct to use it. Let me know how the next iteration looks like
I have changed the pattern of the fish skin

Another iteration with blue bubbles:
I read it in the guide that the outline must be a darker color, so I did not use it in the main iteration but here's one incase you prefer it

ln10.svg.2021_05_04_22_36_54.1.svg

I tried a ton of patterns for the fish skin but ended up with this one, let me know if I should experiment more

Let me know what you think about these whenever you get time :DD
