Design Question - Input Needed!

    I could really use some opinions on a design question I have. I used a Service Worker to splice my Service Worker Control Panel into the native application settings page (?a=AppSettingsHome). It looks like this:



    I probably need to distinguish the icon I use for my Service Worker Control Panel so users understand this feature is a custom plugin and not part of the native interface. So I was wondering if the black font provided enough of a distinction from the white font native QuickBase uses on their icons or should I go bolder and change the background color of the icon. What do you think?

    I'd say keep the style (shape and font color white), but change the background color.  
    Blue, or their new favorite purple.

    Or make it a gif that changes color ;)

    Animated Gifs - Good idea. Maybe I could do some animation easing: http://easings.net/">http://easings.net/">http://easings.net/

    That's the trouble with these Service Workers they have so many design possibilities.

    Agreed...different background color. Interested to see where this is going...

    Well you know QuickBase technology has evolved at different rates and along different technical trajectories among the various multiverses where it is used. It looks like QuickBase in this quadrant is following the same evolutionary path as pioneered on Claris Four and going with the Service Workers Plugin architecture.

    I really miss Claris Four - they had the most beautiful sunsets with dual suns and some spectacular total eclipses when all five moons participated.
