Subject Re: [UX][DESIGN EXPLORATION] - flat application icons
Date Tue, 09 Jul 2013 12:17:41 GMT
     Hi Samer,

nice stuff! No longer the basic 'app'-like shape, but nice ;-) I like 
the round ones, this is a visible change. I miss the gulls less than I 
would have imagined before seeing it...

Some thoughts on looking at them:
- The symbols in the objects are well distinguishable. The presentation 
one is rounded, the others have sharp edges. Would it be possible to 
have sharp/round for all uniquely? Maybe a unique size for all, too?
- For Impress I still would prefer the 'dia' association, a frame with 
the classic 'dia' dimensions and an open 'window' in the center, like in 
the set from Kevin two above yours.

Just my thoughts (and just suggestions of course)
