Bored of standard plastic icons and started to create my own.

Thanks for warm response.


> The backwards Г used as a T really broke the readability for me though.

I feel ASCII-only people are pretty crazy about unusual forms of characters. E. g. they write ШE ΛЯЕ, and they fine, but cyrillic guy will spend some moments wondering 'That is this Sheh-Lyaye?!' before deciphering 'we are'.

I saw that T form in several demoscene pieces, seem it resemble '7' as in leetspeak. I found it good for 4 px wide font.


> But what's the deal with the print icon?

Actually There are several series of similar icons denoting different states or actions on objects, like battery empty, charging, missing, etc. I think it would be boring to see all of them.

Print icon is one of the series related to printer, meaning actually Printer Error. It shows a bloody-red cross on a paper. Printer Printing is the same without the cross. And Printer Idling shows less paper out.

> have icons like these on my phone

I don't know thow (end even if possible) to install own icon theme on a phone. For OpenDesktop compliant systems creating theme is pretty easy and striaghtforward: it is just a bunch of properly named PNGs and a description/index file. If there's converting tool exist then it is possible to make icon theme for phone.

Look very cute and ... cozy, dare i say ?

The backwards Г used as a T really broke the readability for me though.

These are so nostalgic and pretty! Really awesome! I wish I could have icons like these on my phone. But what's the deal with the print icon?
