What version did you stop using it at?
I don't know, all I know is I went right from Illustrator to Photoshop and Photoshop was at CS 5.5 at that point. I got them separately and at different times, so I'm not sure.
I work CS4. Still I like the CS6 UI.
Here's the messages icon rendered in Illustrator.
The icon looks flat from the bottom but as you go up it looks like a random bulge.
How about that?
And I designed a cover art for a new fictional Coldplay album (I honestly think it's sh*t)
For the messages icon, it looks okay except the icon looks rounded while the speech bubble looks set into the icon due to the shadow, so I'd remove the shadow.
You want to make the bubble look as though it is above the icon. Lose the inner shadow and have a play around with bevel and emboss. Add some gloss to the bubble too.
If you do use bevel and emboss on the bubble though make sure you make it really smooth and faint.
Edit: Er, also, be careful using bevel and emboss with gloss. It can look really awkward.
You may think I never take the time to perfect my works but ideas keep popping up in my head and when I have an idea, I MUST do it. That's called determination eh!
Just though about these Notification Center widgets. Did this quickly though. I think that'd be awesome if anyone with good coding skills is reading. And sorry it those already exist. I just thought it'd look nice with these styles.
The clock widget: Configurable using the little "i" button on the lower right hand corner of it. You can swipe left or right to switch to different clocks.
The messages widget: Text directly from NC with this little handy widget!
