hey there everyone! This is the official home page for the Unofficial Ubisoft Signature Design Group! Or the UUSDG for short. the first home thread The Animus effect-
The UUSDG's beginnings Basically, this thread will be for members of the Group to bounce off ideas, chat about design related subjects, and help one another to get better in the area. Also, join this group for the official UUSDG! http://forums.ubi.com/group.php?groupid=27 Remember that if you're in the group, you should incorporate this image: LINK: http://img.skitch.com/20110101...1cgkcq32q35j6pua.png into your signature for ease of everyone else to identify you. I'll update the roster for each person who joins as well.and to show that your sigs are part of the UUSDG, show: LINK: http://img.skitch.com/20110214...273rcn6n98atcfpk.png also, just as a reminder in case anyone forgets. The signature limits for this forum are under 60kb and must be, at the most, 500x150 pixels. lest your sig be replaced by: If you want to make .PNG sigs without optimizations, please use a size of 375 px x 75 px. This the size that is A-OKAY for 60KB.If you still prefer the normal size, you can save them in either .GIF or PNG-8 image. However, soft edges (such as shadows) will be sacrificed, in replace, the edges will become rough. Picture quality may also degrade.here are the links to each request thread opened so far: signature (and avatar) request thread #3AC:B Multiplayer Signature Request Thread #2EndWar Signature Request ThreadGhost Recon: Future Soldier Signature Request Thread The Signature Challenge:It'll be a two-in-one challenge - all connected to one another:The first one is create a typography of any kind you like - be it a comprehension (for reading), title (effects) or art (creativity).Second, using the typography, design a sig in minimalism style or clean.The size required is 500 px x 150 px or smaller, at 60KB and it can be .PNG, .GIF or .JPG.Boxed sig is okay - however, a generic box (with just a sharp black/white/colored line frame or no frames at all) is not allowed. Boxed sig will need more than a thin frame, find or design a thicker and/or creative frame that complements the whole design.Custom shaped sig is highly recommended.The aim of this challenge is to create a pleasing yet attractive design with minimal elements put in. Good luck & happy designing.

It's going to look awesome!!! Oh and on the previous thread you were asking what was Inkscape for?! Here is the answer:
Inkscape is used for vectorial image and used to create paths, you can make realistic stuff or unrealistic like computer icons, social network icon, can use it to create templates, walpapers, full signatures, bases, gradients and anything else it comes to your mind. I recommended Inkscape to use on base making, because there are tons of people that can't create them on GIMP/Photoshop, when I started I was a complete n00b and started to use Inkscape because is way easier and free! Inkscape is to Adobe Illustrator like GIMP is for Adobe Photoshop!

forum rules dictate that once a thread hits 99, we start a new one. figured it out in the past hat for some reason, too many 100+ page threads causes the forum server to get all screwed up. there's a few exceptions, but the more popular on-going threads go by this rule.
i just noticed, i can create a shortcut between the sig request threads for the AC and AC Multiplayer if you guys want to link the two. it would be one less to check, but that's entirely up to you guys. it will mean closing one of them first and having one consistent thread. just an idea...
