Was looking for the UX bubble on Stack Exchange's All Sites page. Couldn't find the icon. Well, here's your problem:

enter image description here

It's even more invisible in context.It's like UX StackExchange logo is hard to see in the SE profile pages (accounts tab) but way worse.

Could we get a tweak to make that U a bit more visible?

@JimmyBreck-McKye Stack Exchange, it's hosted at cdn.sstatic.net/ux/img/icon-48.png –  Ben Brocka Aug 23 '12 at 23:10
    
Does anyone have a PSD or editable vector, though? –  Jimmy Breck-McKye Aug 24 '12 at 16:09
    
@JimmyBreck-McKye presumably Jin; otherwise I'm not sure where they'd have higher-resulution/vector copies –  Ben Brocka Aug 24 '12 at 16:34
    
Researched a bit of Jin's work on SE (means: read his blog), currently I try to find out, what was the design intent with these colors, they look like the global SE colors, but hexa-wise a bit different.. I'm nearly sure he has a palette somewhere. Is he too busy? –  Aadaam Aug 26 '12 at 1:11

I have put in a fix for this. I have no idea why I picked the colors I did... it will be in the next production build. (you may need to refresh browser to see the change).

Try something like this:

UX site logo

I guess @Jin tried to use the default SE colors when designing UX.SE, all I did was basically grabbed the current logo, grabbed the bg color of the header, then the bg color of the SE bar on top, and used these colors, this way trying to be faithful to the original palette.

The cutting is terrible, but we're full of visual designers on this site, someone surely could do it properly if they like the idea. Hey, I'm an engineer, I can't do pretty things! :)

+1, this is basically exactly what appears in cdn.sstatic.net/ux/img/newsletter-ad.png and the favicon, and until I saw this post, I thought this was the "official" UX.SE logo. –  msanford Aug 27 '12 at 1:32
