    Hello guys !

    I've wanted to start my own theme since I first tried one though Summerboard. Yesterday, I decided to start experimentally making an icon base for future use.

    It turned out to be quite well looking, being a text based icon theme.

    Icons will be transparent (see through), and there will be just the starting letter of the program each icon is assigned to. This means you'll need the Icon Labels turned on.

    Here's a preview I made quite quickly. Check, and vote !

    If you like it, you can also make some offers on what Font I could use for the monogram of each icon. Personally, I prefer the font I used in the title of the Preview {Hud Icon Set}.

    See you out there.

    [If it goes well, I'll start making all the graphics and stuff after June 15th, when schools in Greece close and I have more spare time]

    looks okay, needs a few a few adjustments:

    try to tone down the glow, make it seem less obvious.

    also maybe try to give the icons a little more depth, I'm not exactly sure what but the icons look too flat, just a square with glow...maybe add a white-black gradient on the icons with the opacity turned way down, just to give it a slight depth. [thats the great thing about gradients - even if you dont notice them it changes how the icon looks]

    Actually, I want to keep it simple...

    I wanted it to be just as you describe it. A square with a glow. Personally, I like the [slightly, yeah] shadowed one.

    I'll try changing the glow thing a bit.

    {I'm using Paint.NET to make all these, so do not expect great graphics here...

    Glad you like it. I tried again -because I didn't like something. And I added a surrounding ring.

    Do you like it?

    the ring is a nice touch, but it looks off somehow. I cant quite put my finger on it, but something about it looks not right. maybe its not sharp enough? I dunno

    I know exactly what you 're trying to say, but I also want the icons to be as transparent as possible, to emphasize on the wallpaper. I'll play with the Icon Labels, the dock background etc.

    For now, I just want to keep the icons as less opaque as possible...


    ============

    You liked the one without the ring more ? [Compared to this ring without the changes you mention ]
