Now that a lot of the back end of our Arena Check-in system is in place and ready to go, I’ve been focusing my efforts on the fun part… Themes!
This school year’s theme is “Go Fish”, so I set about seeing if I could come up with something fun, without hiring an external designer/illustrator to do something for us. Here’s what I’ve got so far:
Still a work in progress, haven’t done the buttons yet (as anyone familiar with the default Arena theme has already spotted), but it’s coming along.
I’ve got 4 different scenes to wotk with for the fish, and the original art is vector-based, so I can move fish about as needed to get out of the way of text – I think I can even make them swim from one illustration to the other via the miracle of the Windows clipboard.
The artwork is from iStockPhoto, from a designer who goes by the username totallyjamie. The font is Chaloops Medium from Chank!.
Ian – This looks awesome! I love the way that they look and the tie in with the theme for the year. Great stuff!
