Blue Red or White

posted under by Pinheiro | Edit This

So 3 device icons, 3 colors only one winner, you decide :)

The frist one that i made was the blue one and it was based on an older version of the same icon but a bit off standard device position.
So then i satrted to wonder if blue was the right color for it , and made 2 more, result? Now im a bit lost i like them all .... :)



Ps the old one is still going to be used somewere but not as an device icon.

White - It sort of looks more seamless...

i like the blue one, but the red one it's cool too

Obviously the white one.

As a big icon, the old one in perspective was realy nice too :)

Kalle said...

I like the red one most.

red... :)

Hmm.. Blue I think. Red is maybe a bit much, and the white one looks nice at first, but now it looks like a tooth to me.


The blue one is pretty, but as said above, white is more seamless.

I still wonder if we could use color schemes to change these colors, KDE is blue by default, so most icons/htmls are blue... but I use a Green desktop and it feels a bit weird some times... :-/

Being able to define predominant, light, dark and contrast colors would be great! :-)

Thanks for great work!

I don't like any of them :) white seems half-invisible, red I just don't like as a colour, and there's too much blue in kde right now (although I do like how it looks on its own). I think I could find a problem with *any* colour suggested...

David said...

oh man those mouses are sick! it's great to have you in team :)

The one with an angle is just spectacular

white may be more explicit...

I like blue the most.

Mart said...

I think kde had way too much blue, a change would really mean a breath of fresh air :)
and i think the white one (like all the grayscale icons) is hard to distinguish between an active icon and a disabled/greyed out one, so i would say red :)

Hey Nuno,

Colour-wise, I would go for something grayish. However I have to say that the old, perspective icon is far better. With the new ones, it's difficult to tell right away that they are representations of a mouse. With the old one it's a lot easier and clearer...

Anyway, cheers for the good work!

I want it painted black... oh, wait, that was a cheat in some game :) The blue one looks good :D

Blue- it looks like mine. white is drab, red, too much... love the angle shot.

Lengau said...

Can I vote for not the red one?
I like the white and the blue, but the red just looks weird.

Parker said...

Blue.

Could you rotate it 180 degree. Usually the wheel is onn top.
The white is nice but on a white background, we need more contrast.

Last but not least I prefer the one with perspective (3D).

felipe said...

The old one is still the best, I admit i don't know the rationale for changing it, but it's just better than the new ones :)

Pinheiro said...

Ok about the old one, its the wrong position all device icons are seen in a frontal view position, so...
The old one will be used elsewere!

red is better!

GothicX said...

I like the blue one :-)

I agree with the above comment - it is facing the wrong way!

Also white, or perhaps light blue-grey?

T1m said...

I like the blue.

I think that the old mouse was much better because it is from an angle (more distiguishable).

Tnx for Oxygen!

Imants said...

White.

quintesse said...

Yup I agree with two of the above posters as well, the icon should be the other way around. For some reason my brains doesn't want to accept it's a mouse this way.

About the colors... well... the blue and red ones seem a bit to bright for my taste but the white one has too little contrast. How about a grey one :-)

Matt Broadstone said...

My god that old one looks so nice, you guys really do some great work! (and for the small one I choose white)

Anonymous said...

The red one. The white is nice, but it is too difficult to see it.

As for the old one, it looks very nice, but the scroll wheel is too black. I think it would look better if it was a little more gray.

superstoned said...

I vote for red too. The white one is a bit boring, the blue one - we have enough blue, so red. fresh color. And the one from the side, yes, very cool ;-) But maybe not in small resolution.

Blue. White could be hard to distinguish for those with bad eyesite (like those who put the fonts up x4). Red is just too much power from a little device. Red fits in a black/red themed desktop, not the bluishness that KDE has had (and seems to continue to have.. which is fine)

Thanks for asking our opinions, but then again opinions are just opinions. Everyone's got one. We really need to be sticking to a pre-defined colorscheme here, not whatever kde planet readers dig.

TreviƱo said...

White for me too, but maybe it's not so visible for little icons, so maybe should be considered also the blue icon for small sizes...nh

Anonymous said...

Blue, definitely. Red is too brihght and out of the KDE/Oxygen pallete, white is not distinguishable.

shamaz said...

I've never seen a red mouse (in real life).
I prefer the white version.

Most of oxygen icons are bluish... You know there are other colors in the Oxygen color palette ;)

Anyway, this icon looks great! (regardless of the color)

el_mickey said...

Both, i'm french

Blue or red are OK, the white one is difficult to see. But aren't the icos upside down?

Pinheiro said...

Go to a computer store! look how all of the mouses are displayed, i bet they will be like the ones i show the intention is to show the details at frist glance, not the back.

IV said...

if you want my honest oppinion I would say they need work. They don't look like real mouses... too large, and the view you chose doesn't help.
I'm pretty sure you can do much better, I've seen much better from you!
By the way, I've noticed you have put a "cool music" category in your blog... It's really good music! I recommend it!!!
Keep up the good work!

JoeJoe said...

Go for Blue. Blue = KDE's primary color! Go for blue!

Markus said...

I like all colours (maybe grey is my favorite)!

However, I have to agree that the mouse should be turned by 180 degrees - the wheel belongs to the top, otherwise things are irritating!

Having said that, I am really impressed about you graphical skills, continue just like that!!

blue! great work!!!! :)

Blue is great, but it's so much used i the icon theme, so I think that would be a bit to much. The white has to little contrast. The red one looks great and will be easy to reconice. If I could chose. I would take the red one, but they are all GOOD

danuthaiduc said...

I like all three of them, but I agree that they look weird upside-down. Look at your mouse. What side is pointing at you?
