Would anyone be interested in a custom tribe flag?

What with the large amount of new tribes that appear to be popping up, I thought some people might like a hand with a flag for their new tribe.

I've just come over from reddit where I used to design the occasional snoo for people (the biggest being /r/news, hover on the logo and you'll see my name). I thought it might worth doing my bit and sharing the love with what appears to be a very friendly community.

I'd be happy to put some together on request if anyone's interested. Due to time constraints I'd like to keep them bold and simple (see my new tribe /t/underdogmusic for an example). You can give me an idea of what you want, or let me go for broke.

If you're interested, just comment below!

Edit: So, it's looking like some people are interested! I'm going to take a little break and do some more later. Don't worry, I will be back shortly, so keep posting. I'll try and get through as many as possible!

The flags I completed so far are:

Note: I've realised that the flags look terrible when uploaded in most cases. It appears that this is related to the fact that they are programmatically converted to 140x140 .jpg files (which is a lossy compression format). I've played with a few alternatives to try and solve the issue (including various resolutions and converting them to higher quality .jpgs myself) but as of yet, I can't seem to solve the fidelity issue. If anyone has a solution, please let me know. Once this is rectified, I will re-export all the images as required and provide them to the requesters.

Update: the flag quality problem is due to be solved shortly by the lovely admins. Watch this space, and if new versions are required to take advantage of the fix, I will PM each requester with an updated flag.

If I haven't got round to your request yet, don't worry! I'm working through them and letting a few tick away in my head for a bit, until I get a good idea.

Last edit (Jul 20th 2015): That's about all of them done! Thanks to everyone for the requests and positive feedback. You can now consider this thread closed. I will be posting another similar one in the near future! Take care everyone.

    I'm sure there is going to be amazing interest in your offer. My I be the first one to ask maybe you may have a good idea for the /t/lounge tribe flag :)

      Here we go! Do let me know if there are any changes you'd like. :)

      • drunkenninja

        Sorry I didn't reply sooner, just completely swamped with things today :) I really look the direction of this, perhaps a little less color, maybe even black and white and possible the word "lounge" somewhere in there, doesn't have to be a huge word. Thanks for doing this, some of the other flags are amazing.

        • imnotgoats
          +2

          No problem. Try this one for size. If you'd like me to try a whole different idea, let me know. Also, if you're not sure on the typeface, could you give me an idea of a style or 'feeling' you're after? :)

          • picklefingers
            +5

            I like the general concept, but I feel like LOUNGE should be more emphasized somehow.

          • drunkenninja

            Love it! There is just one little thing... would you be able to make the G look a little more like a G? The line at the bottom is a little too small and it looks like a C. I know I know I'm super picky and I'm sorry :)

            • imnotgoats (edited 3 years ago)
              +4

              Sure, I was having second thoughts about the typeface for the exact same reason. I'll have a little ponder.

              Edit: also, don't be sorry - I asked you to be picky! :)

              I think it might be that your sofa's a little too complicated to translate into greyscale easily – it looks wonderful in colour, but with all the different shades of grey, it starts to get a bit busy, you know?

              I'm thinking maybe try getting rid of the rug, moving down the sofa (possibly making the arms/seat cushions the same shade), and using a taller typeface? Maybe Oswald, a personal favourite of mine, or something blockier, like Franchise or Natasha?

            • imnotgoats
              +4

              Okay, here's a bit of a reworking, also taking on board some points from @Katherine and @picklefingers.

              A little less busy, without the rug. The couch retains its varying tones but is now not complicated by the text. The typeface (Burford by Kimmy Design) is bolder and blockier, but has a touch of flair (we can also replace it with a block colour version).

              Again, I'm not precious, so if you want the typeface changed up again or anything, let me know. :)

              Oh that is an absolute beauty! Thank you, updating the flag now :)

    Those flags are awesome! When I finally work out how to create a tribe I'll definitely be coming back to make use of your services ;)

  • HeyYourself

    Wow! Thanks for doing this to the community!

    If you dont mind i would be interested in one for /t/lightbulb. A kind of minimalist style light bulb maybe? If it's not asking too much, please make it this color: "1B96F4"

    Again, I really appreciate what you are doing for the community!

    • imnotgoats
      +5

      Here you are! Hope that's OK. Let me know if you need any tweaks. :)

      • HeyYourself

        This is just perfect! A million thanks go to you!

        • imnotgoats
          +2

          Glad you like it. Just joined your tribe - sounds like a neat idea! :)

          • HeyYourself
            +1

            Sorry to bother you, but could you upload the pic to dropbox or some other place so the image doesnt get all wrecked? After downloading it and reuploading it to snapzu it turned out all pixelated!

            • Axiomatic
              +1

              It seems like that is a current issue with many Snapzu tribe flags. I have found that this happens most frequently with colorful flags, and that black and white flags like I have used in /t/milliondollarideas, /t/oregon, and /t/Portland do not suffer from this.

            • imnotgoats (edited 3 years ago)
              +1

              Hi HeyYourself, yeah, I noticed that. It might be due to the native resolution of 440 being compressed badly by the site. I can try a 200x200 version. I'll edit this comment in a few moments with the new version.

              Edit: here, try this. Failing that, it might be to do with the colour depth (which we can also look at).

    Hey, I know you're busy at this point... I clicked on your post this morning and now it's blown up!

    It's not a big deal, so don't feel like you have to do it, but I just started a tribe for mixing alcoholic drinks. So if you got the time, I'd appreciate the flag! /t/mixology

    One for /t/ukulele would be awesome. Have you thought about creating matching banners as well?

    • imnotgoats
      +2

      One ukulele flag. I have thought about banners, but I think I'll get all the current flag requests out of the way first. :)

    • thinkerbell
      +1

      Oooh, that is a good idea. Or if not matching, something that coordinates with the flag.

  • double2
    +3

    Top flaggage! Have you considered making this thread into a tribe itself? /t/flagrequests, perhaps? Keep up the excellent work!

    • imnotgoats
      +2

      As a matter of fact, yes. I have set up /t/flagme, but haven't done anything with it yet. I figured I'd exhaust this thread first, then move there.

  • phiguru
    +2

    I can see you have quite a bit of work, so if you don't have time that's OK. If you do have time, I would love a flag for /t/legal.
    Thanks!

    • imnotgoats

      Here we go! Hope that does the job. Some ideas just jump out at me and don't take long.

      • phiguru

        Thank you kind human! What is the color of the background? I'd like to make the title bar to match.

        • imnotgoats
          +1

          Glad you like it! Do let me know if you want any tweaks. The colour is 6cb84f. :)

  • Xeno

    Hey imnotgoats! I previously requested an icon for /t/Mixology and loved it. I'm not sure if you're still taking requests, but I've started /t/NeedAFriend and if you're up to it would love another icon! Thanks :)

  • Tallest

    That would be pretty cool! I know the game of thrones related tribe t/asoiaf needs one and t/nba as well.

    • imnotgoats

      This one may suck a little (you decide), but here you go!. Not a GoT fan myself, so I hope it's relevant enough!

  • Zeus

    What a kind offer!

    I'd be interested in a new tribe flag for /t/horror

    You're the artist, go for broke. :D

    Thanks very much!

    • imnotgoats (edited 3 years ago)

      Hi there! How's this? Sorry to leave you hanging, this one took a little longer than some!

      Edit: just changed the link, as I realised Mr. Myers' cheeks were misaligned. My bad!

      • Zeus
        +2

        Seeing that brought a smile to my face! I can tell you put a lot of work into the design. Thanks so much! I'm adding it to /t/horror right now.

    • imnotgoats
      +2

      This one sounds like fun!

  • SuaveJuggernaut
    +2

    If you have the opportunity /t/multicopter just got kicked off and would greatly appreciate your artwork. Im a huge fan and definitely dig the minimalistic style you have.

    • imnotgoats
      +3

      How's this? I'm a complete layman when it comes to copters, so I took an 'impressionist' approach.

      • SuaveJuggernaut
        +1

        Haha awesome I totally dig it dude, youre the best. I owe you one!

  • Cheski
    +2

    Sure! If you can think of something for t/contentcreators that would be killer. I've been trying to think of a flag that would represent many facets of content creation, not just YouTube or Twitch. Thanks!

  • RADAC10US
    +2

    I would forever be in your debt if you created a flag for /t/gamecollectors ! Roundcat, the leader of learn japanese is also a member!

  • thinkerbell
    +2

    I would love a flag for /t/scrapbooking! It's maybe a little different than what you normally do, but perhaps a fun challenge?

    • imnotgoats
      +3

      No problem. I'm pretty tired, so I'm going to head to bed for now - I may neaten that one up tomorrow if I get the chance ;)

      • thinkerbell (edited 3 years ago)
        +1

        Holy cow, that is amazing. Better than I could have hoped! I would ask, if you get the chance to add a greeting card or two in there as well, since the site also caters to cardmakers.

        Again, thanks so much for your hard work! I know a lot of the tribes and chiefs are happy for your contributions.

  • massani

    If you have the time, my tribe: /t/mensfashion would greatly appreciate it! Right now it's just a picture of dapper David Gandy but I have a feeling it would look better with something vector-based. Thanks mate! Love the work!

  • Quietrabbit
    +1

    Really? How about one for /t/Earthbound or /t/Splatoon?

    • TheDylantula
      +1

      I thought about asking for Splatoon, but if you look right now I have a poll up on our tribe for a tribe flag.

      HOWEVER, if you have the time OP, I really do like the art style you're going with, and would definitely consider using it (with discussion from the rest of the tribe :))

      • imnotgoats (edited 3 years ago)
        +2

        Hi TheDylantula, I had a shot at it. I like to keep things somewhat subtle, as I don't think there's much point in my just drawing a Nintendo character (Nintendo does that already). Anyway, it's yours if you'd like it. :)

        • TheDylantula
          +1

          Wow, that's great! We already got a tribe flag that matches with our banner, but I have a second banner that we will switch back and forth with, and this will accompany that banner :D
