Type Blend Icon

The lovely geometric type icon I made during the DFP Lecture today. Simple and customizable, but after continually seeing all of the pretty things that James White keeps putting out, I really just wanted to make something colorful. The icon is entirely vector, which was really difficult to achieve with the color blending of the radial shape and the necessary drop shadow ... had to delve into that cumbersome Illustrator Transparency panel masking interface, which is not typically any fun.

As usual, the icon should be available for purchase from GraphicRiver later on this week ... once it gets approved, of course. Feel free to head over to GR and pick up a couple of my other icons too . My new XBOX 360 will thank you for the spending money. :)

Kodachrome Icon
It is time again for the monthly DFP discussion on icons. My über example today ended up being this lovely tribute to Kodak's belated Kodachrome plastic slide mounts. It's kinda crazy that these were still being widely used just back in the 1990s. The icon should be available soon from the nice GraphicRiver folks, in both ...


Got somethin' to say? This is the place ... just try to play nice.

Wicked! Really like the soft tones you have going with the palette, looks nice and natural. Good job, man.
