My mate Jeremy in one of his recent shows explained that he doesn’t even use wallpaper. I can’t imagine not tinkering with computers. Just to show how much I play about here is a cut of my desktop. I usually have a different workflow, but I moved everything around so you can see it all in one go.

The Awfullness of CS3 Icons

4th January 2007 - Category: Design,Desktop

You may or may not be aware that Adobe has released a beta of Photoshop CS3, mainly I think to prove to those Intel Mac owners that there will be X86 versions on their way. There have been many posts of the subject so I won’t bore you with the details, I’ll just state my opinion and offer some appropriate links.

I started off liking them for,  mmm, around 5 minutes untill I realised how essentially broken they are. The CS/CS2 icons are fairly broken, but examples like Icon Masks and the comedic Their Toolbar make the point quite well. BeckleyWorks makes a good arguement, unfortunatly he also links to the Icon Masks image, which is equally true in the pre-CS style squares. I’m happy with abstract, but really icons should be icons not minature versions of the finder label highlights.

David Lanham’s Amora

2nd August 2006 - Category: Design,Desktop

 I use DL’s Agua at home as it is an excellent system replacement icon set. He has recently released a new set called Amora. It’s style is based on the video for ‘All is Full of Love‘ By Bjork. I love how David remembers to do res-specific icons something few creators remember to do. Check it out!
