Great icons!


A problem for the design challenged is the ability to create acceptable icons for desktop applications or for a web site. So it’s great to discover IconWorkshop from Axialis. The idea of the product is simple: compose an icon by layering visual components. The components are just PNG files with an alpha channel so they can be overlaid appropriately. The components include backgrounds in different shapes, highlights for reflection and ‘objects’ which might be arrows or a printer, etc. Through this simple process – and 50MB of backgrounds, highlights and objects – a large number of icons can be generated at any size up to 256×256. At $40 for the pro version its a timesaver that also allows the generation of really high quality icons.
