SoftPerfect RAM Disk software icons and logo
To design a logo, software application icon and an installer picture for the SoftPerfect RAM Disk.
SoftPerfect software developers did not set any restrictions nor give any sketches; the only thing they had in mind was “perhaps a picture of a random-access memory chip can do the job”.
About SoftPerfect RAM Disk
SoftPerfect RAM Disk is a high-performance RAM disk application that creates a virtual disk entirely stored in the computer memory accessible in Windows Explorer and other applications. As the memory is much faster than physical hard disks, storing temporary or intensively-accessed data on a fast in-memory disk increases PC performance and protects the hard disk from extra wear and tear.
What I definitely didn’t want to do was to draw a memory chip. Firstly, because most software that has anything to do with computer memory involves a RAM chip image. Secondly, the SoftPerfect RAM Disk icon is supposed to stay in the system tray, and therefore should look well in 16x16 pixel size and 256 colours while remaining clearly identifiable. And finally, a picture of a chip is just boring.
So... what if I take a ram for RAM?
The programmers were quite surprised with the solution, and they loved it!
The icons and the installer picture are the parts of the SoftPerfect RAM Disk software, and therefore cannot be used without SoftPerfect Research permission, except for the purposes directly related to the SoftPerfect RAM Disk software.
