    I've made all of the default icons and a template (my first ever template so its not perfect and its sized at 159x160 instead of 59x60).

    I still don't know what I should do for a wallpaper but I'm working on it. So far this is an icons only theme, but that will hopefully change.

    I'm thinking of a metaphor along the lines of building blocks because that's what all of the icons sort of look like but I'm still not sure.

    Here's a download of the icons and template: View attachment blocks.theme.zip

    If anyone would like to C & C, share ideas, or make icons and post them here, feel free to do so.

    I was also stupid enough to think I had a MacThemes account, but of course I don't and now they've closed registration on their forums, so I would appreciate it if someone could post this their for me (I can view the forums even though I'm not registered)

    also: anyway to change the thread title?

    I don't get it... Are all the icons gonna have an apple? What do you mean there will be more bases? I suggest make some metaphors for the other icons before thinkin about a wallpaper....

    no the apple wont be there. thats where something like a safari design (ie: a compass) will be (in the same style as the apple). The base is whats there without the apple. and what do u mean make a metaphor for the other icons before making a wallpaper. i dont get the whole metaphor part

    The bright yellow/a little green base is bad. It blends too much but it could work with a glyph.

    A metaphor (artistically) is the idea that the icon is going to be based on. Example: the App Store metaphor could be an actual Apple Store.

    Yeah I agree with wynd, get some icons done first, worry about the wall once the theme's more settled in.

    Definitely continue!

    Looking at it full size again, the gradient on the purple (top left) one is a bit too drastic, try and keep it darker. Does that make sense?
