Re: Transmission Icon

I've brightened up my proposed icons a notch. I realize it's a subtle change, but the light grays really shouldn't be any brighter than this -- there are constraints I have to stay within to keep the shading from disappearing. (On some displays, grays above a certain brightness get "crushed" to soli...

Re: Transmission Icon

Yes, they are a bit heavier and darker. The chunkier shapes help it at small sizes, and toning down the brightness of the gray parts was a decision I made when testing it against white, gray, and black backgrounds -- if it's too bright, it pops out of black backgrounds in a glare-y way. The middle g...

Re: Transmission Icon

I've made some progress on modern-style OS X icons, and will be submitting two versions to the devs for consideration (I'll open a Trac ticket shortly.) Here's a comparison between the look that was established for Transmission in 2007 and my proposal to match modern icon styles: icon_sample_1a.png ...

Re: Transmission Icon

Here's a very rough sketch of my first attempt to adapt the current icon to match Apple's style (flat shading, no foreshortening, thin bright outline, closer to vertical orientation.) It's meant to match Mail, Notes, Calendar, TextEdit, etc. Transmission icon flat N1v15 SKETCH COMPARISON.png Losing ...

Re: Transmission Icon

In my personal opinion, of the two you've suggested, the upper one maintains some good continuity with the current icon, and is a pretty good design, though the shade of red needs adjusting and the contours could use some tweaking to make the shapes "read" better at small sizes (one advantage of App...
