Description

5 years ago
CSS edits and graphic-assets needed (based on firefoxflicks.org) for http://firefoxflicks.tumblr.com/

Once the main-site design is ready, we need the Tumblr blog to be updated accordingly.

Access to Tumblr:
There is no password. The designer/dev will have to have a personal Tumblr account. Please forward the associated email address to me, so I can add you as admin.

Thanks Tobi, I'm not sure what the process is for this but the scope for my team will be to help with the background image. I'm making this into a creative bug, please be sure to file the appropriate bug / ping the appropriate folks to be sure it gets updated / implemented on the Tumblr account.

Tara - This should be ready in time for Flicks R1. What do you advice the due date to be then? 1 week before that? Thanks!

Thanks.  I'm not sure what the process is for uploading this into the Tumblr site, is that a quick process or does it take 1 week? We're very short on time to crank through all the many assets for R1, so the more time we have the better.  let me know, thanks.
Last year it took someone in webdev a day or so to do it. I'm not sure what else they had on their plate at the same time. Hope this helps.

Tumblr_background_example

I've kept the Tumblr background quite simple in this example.  I didn't want it to become to overbearing since it is a background element. The content is based on the current Flicks Tumblr page and is for placement only.
I think it looks great.

Thanks Matt. Our team will look over all graphic assets in a few and let you know if all things are good to go.
Let's also update the subhead while we're at it:

Disregard this - wrong bug.
Feedback from Creative review:

The important action here is to revise the Tumblr to look and feel like the rest of the Flicks campaign ID in particular the website and lifestyle focused collateral assets. 

Currently, the Tumblr doesn't feel like it's part of the same constellation of assets and because it's our content distribution hub (Tumblr) it should resemble the other pieces of the campaign. 

- We're missing a Flicks logo here.  Ideas? We were thinking to either have it in the background somehow or  quite small in front of the wordmark. Feel free to play.
- Potentially make the word mark smaller?
Feel free to disregard this, but I wonder if the collage would work here in some way. Matt, what do you think?

Folks...

So I went forward with re-skinning the blog based on the webdev bug, I completely missed that a creative bug had been filed and that mockups were being created. Craig is on MWC stuff so I took this on to help out.

This might have been serendipitous given the above comments.

Below is the theme I came up with applied to a test blog with some copy pasted flicks posts:

http://bsternth.tumblr.com/

Thoughts? Maybe use this as a starting point?

Thanks Ben. We've definitely been working hard on hammering out design for a variety of things, including the blog.  I think this is a good starting point, but lets be sure to use the designs that were created, please :)

Agree and apologies... total oversight/mistake on my part.

More than happy to redo the theme from scratch if necessary.

Hi all, I'm wondering: Where are we at with the design files for this? I somehow assumed it's already done but I can't find anything. Tara?

Hi Tobias - I've just attached the most recent Tumblr background image as a jpg. Please let me know if you would like a link to the PSD as well.

Comment 21

Yep please add a link to the psd (just in case). I can update this either today or tomorrow. Current blog will not break when the new site goes up.

Matt:

Many thanks but do you have a version that includes the flicks logo and example post.

I will need to cut the logo (mock looks bigger than the one we have on the reg site), and look at the text to make sure I match the colors.

 Hi Ben, sorry for the delay in getting back.  The PSD that I posted should have a content layer in there that is turned off, which includes the logo and example post.
Please let me know if I can help with anything else.

Matt, thanks...I should have known to check the psd. Will work on tomorrow and let you know if I need anything.
