I'll preface this by saying that I am no graphic designer but would love to hear people's thoughts on the first conceptual draft of the artwork for my Uni-Vibe. Things might move around spacing wise depending on where things end up on the final PCB design but this is the concept I had in my head pretty much from the start. The enclosure will be light grey like the original unit, hence the black and white colour scheme of the artwork. Again, inspired by the original source material.
Below: The first draft of the artwork.
Just to recap, Pадио Москва means Radio Moscow
in Russian and was the inspiration behind the creation of the Uni-Vibe by Fumio Mieda. See my very first post in this thread for more information and an interview with the inventor himself.
The red dots are the holes for the pots, the yellow dots are the holes for the footswitches, and the blue dots are the holes LEDs. The LED at the top of the antenna is the LFO LED
and will flash in time with the speed and intensity of the modulation and change colour depending on whether it is in Chorus
mode. Or, if the LFO is in Cancel
mode, just turn a solid red colour. The bottom LED is doubles as the status LED for the bypass and an indicator of the input mode using a bicolour LED. Blue for the original Vintage
mode and red for the Modern
I'm leaning towards a separate faceplate but am also considering UV printing. So I'd love to hear if there are any preferences one way or another in regards to a separate faceplate over UN printing or vice versa.
