Hi. First of all, I couldn't find a more appropiate forum so please feel free to remove or relocate the post if it doesn't go here.
I think that it would be nice to have the splash screens of the next generation of adobe applications pay homage to the great artists that serve as inspiration for us everyday.
I've prepared 3 rough images just as an example. In every case, the letters that represent the program are the initials of the artist that it honours.
Thanks for the space to post this.
And who is Bridge a 'homage' to then, Barney Rubble?
It seems too gimmicky, IMO.
I wasn't a fan of the CS5 product icons, but the isometric splash screens are, to me, be-freaking-utiful. Simple, strong, elegant gradations and opacities. Very professional typography with the logotype as well.
Nice idea, but personally I'd have to vote no.
I can't stand splash screens.
I already bought the program and I know what it is...so I definitely don't need to see an 'ad' everytime it launches.
But that's just me.....
