Twitch Account Art

Post by Vogue »

So, who wants to make some for me?

Example: http://www.twitch.tv/voyboy/old (the top banner, the offline screen, an avatar)

And I'm gonna have to replace my bowl rim_wall (by concord) with a general ladle one!

Here is something I was playing around with today.

Vogue, you should pick some colors you like as a scheme for the designers here to work with. Having a color palate and a design motif will go a long way to making some sharp crowd-sourced art.

What are the dimensions for the replacement graphics?

It doesn't say what the dimensions are, can you tell off the example page I provided?

I like purple.

What are the rough size requirements?
And what code purple are you using sine? Might as well try and keep a unified colour theme.
Would purple be bowl colour with a different colour for ladle, or the colour for anything going on the stream?

Ah, avatar dimensions aren't specified but here's the rest:

Video Player Banner
This is displayed on the player when your channel is offline.
Image should be 16:9 to fill the entire video player.


Header Image
This is displayed at the top of your channel page above the title of your broadcast.
image must be exactly 640x125px


Background Image
This is the background of your channel page.
no dimensions


Maybe create your own twitch page to test which image goes where and if it looks right.

I don't know if I even like that purple or that avatar. I'll probably make something else. Twitch uses purple too and I think it's rgb(100, 65, 165). We could even match their color, or be careful not to make a purple that is too close.

There are no Bowl colors. For the server browser I just used Ladle colors (green, blue, pink). Really, I think we should just keep throwing ideas into this thread until we get something really sweet. I'll try and get more art done before Sunday, but I'm pretty busy.

Here are a couple things we can use until something better comes along. I repositioned the avatar and the colors of it and the header match Twitch's color scheme. Should look sharp. The offline image is 16:9 as specified.

I don't know if the background image will tile or not, but here is a grid square to try. I think only people who have their browser maximized will see the background image anyway.
