Thanks to a hint tweeted earlier this week from David Anderson, I’ve completed this weeks challenge in record time. The challenge is to create a customized elearning course player.
A few years ago I made a custom player for one of our clients. Their logo was mostly a bright purple with a little white and gray thrown in the mix. I made them three prototype players, one was grey, one was black and one was purple. Although I was initially afraid that the purple would be too much and end up looking garish, I liked that version the best and the client agreed with me.
Originally, I made the player template by combining the client’s logo colours until I found a result that I liked. Although I wanted to use their player template for this challenge, I didn’t want to use their logo without their permission. My boss suggested that I use the Sacramento Kings logo instead, because it was the same colour palette as the original logo. I added a team photo and a bit of animation and my challenge entry was complete.
Here is the finished player. The colour is a little louder than I had anticipated, but I think it adds some excitement and works really well with the logo.
