Glimesh Pride 2022 ideation

Been a little quiet lately, but I am really looking forward to this year’s Pride, especially since it was announced Glimesh would be raising money for The Trevor Project. Similar to a mood board/concept art post from a few months ago (didn’t want to bump such an old thread), this is a space to share any artwork or ideation for stream graphics for the Glimesh Pride “stream-athon” and charity drive for The Trevor Project.

It was brought up that there could be changes to the Glimesh homepage during the month of June, such as including a “widget” to display funds raised for charity drive, and/or highlighting more events using #GlimPride or other tags. The screen below is mostly background graphics that could exist as part of a “hero” section if something like it were added to the homepage. Placement of other elements such as event cards, charity drive “widget”, etc. are not decided on yet.

Ooh i do like the idea of the pride colours displayed so prominently on the homepage if we can find a way to make it work within the scope of how the current homepage works.

I do also, as a smaller design change think throughout the month the logo in the top corner would be nice if we changed it to the Pride logo we had made last year!

For context to the widget idea, not sure if it helps with visualisation at all, im unsure if theres any screenshots around but from what @mja00 was saying for the original charity stream they just basically added in the widget directly from Tiltify (Ya know the updating bar) into the homepage, thinking we could equally do similar for this one. Though this would mean reworking the current layout of the homepage for that month, something I think is defintely worth discussion/mockups and ideas around how to best make it look good :slight_smile:

Thank you for starting this thread!

I was thinking about this as well, either display it all the time, or on hover/click it could animate into the Pride logo variant.

These are pretty generic still but turned the bar one into a wallpaper. If used on the homepage, it could be a transparent png/webp to have the background color come through. Also, any possibility of having a Glimdrop emote for Pride as well? (Quick mock-up using existing :glimsmile:)

Oh that’s a neat idea, whenever you click it to go back to the homepage it changes to it. It would be a nice lil thing and if we have pride colours elsewhere on the homepage it would also break it all up a lil bit so its not rainbows everywhere, give a bit of breathing room, else it could end up being a lot to look it for sure.

So would the intention of this be to sit behind the current home page feature stream/ behind the bit wher eit says next gen live streaming? Sorry its probably just me being a bit dense trying to get my head round the suggestion to visualise it fully!

It would sit behind the “hero” section at the top of the site. This is just a possible mockup of what it could look like. There would still be a featured stream (assume it would be the current event that is live for Pride Event), as well as the featured stream cards (could change randomly on refresh, or maybe could be a carousel).

Text is all placeholder as well, I’m sure someone could come up with some better wording, but essentially it would state what event is, and list several call-to-action items: Link to The Trevor Project site, Donate CTA, and link to events page/form. I know it was mentioned that we could add the widget to the homepage as well, but not sure what that would actually look like (assuming it’s not styled, and also not sure what the fundraiser goal would be). An “Amount raised” could take its place if undecided on goal amount.

Other changes to site could be footer Glimdrop, Glimesh header logo, and other elements/hover states.

Oh damn that looks super clean We need to get a @clone1018 in to see how he feels on such ideas to the homepage :slight_smile: if he’s good with it maybe we can work on getting something concrete and polished implemented in time.

I also think @Paco1342 may now have the tiltify widget if it helps at all :slight_smile:

That image has really helped me visualise it though and I think that’s an fantastic idea with the rainbow behind and the links like that, and that hint of rainbow at the bottom too. So good!

Is this all coded or concepts in designer etc? If I may ask :slight_smile:

Can’t confirm or deny on glimdrops or backgrounds or anything else you keep saying all I can say is we promise there will be surprises :smile: just going to have to keep your eyes peeled!

I do love your lil pride glimdrop, it’s just so cute and happy :3

All design/concept, don’t have a Glimesh Dev environment setup at the moment. Work been keeping me busy/tired 🥲
