Since Allan Day and Andreas Nilsson giving me some suggestion and inspirational material these days, I got the new idea to frame up GNOME VI in my head. As I get a view from the current GNOME style and trend, I suppose to create a series of “GNOME style” icons to design GNOME’s VI. The idea is to offer a lot of icons with concepts not limited to representation of applications but can be used to form multiple publications, brochures and such like. A similar VI design approach is taken by IBM in their initiative “The Smart Planet”.
A few samples are attached. It’s a direction, an idea.
Here are a list of icons to establish vi concept, I draw some of these, some are taken from elements of GNOME exist icons:
