This article explains in detail the process of creating and phases I was going through with this project, and may act as guidance when you decide to make something similar. I went down more than one creative path before finalizing this "GUI Design Icons" font. Chapters Since this article is little bit longer, I've split it into chapters. The Idea I was drawing sketches of graphic user interfaces literally for ages, and this idea was the whole time in my head.

After months in the making and with a ton of help from people on dribbble and twitter I’m finally releasing this set for everyone to enjoy. Something that started out as a doodle on my iPad grew into a cascade of late nights studying compass concepts and exchanging ideas with designers and good-folk alike. Sometimes you just stumble upon a fun notion and you gotta run with it, in this case it was as simple as the idea of why the Safari icon always had to depict that one type of Compass. A few months later, and I’m finally wrapping up 10 fun new compass icons for you guys to put in your docks. Played around with some early rough sketches I’ve decided to show some more high res artwork and give some justice to the many hours spend by reflecting a bit on each icon below, but if you just want to skip that and get the download, head straight over to the Goodies section and download the set.

You may have noticed: icons made in Mac OS X 10.6 are often washed-out/lighter. Normally we create .png files of each icon state, then drag them into Icon Composer. But, starting with 10.6, the colors would lighten unexpectedly. It wasn’t dramatic, but with certain icons (like the one below) it was totally noticeable. The source is on the left. We spent a long time trying to figure this out, and the story goes something like this: Mac OS X is a fully managed color system. Well, in 10.6, that default display colorspace changed quite a lot to be more Windows-like and less old-school Mac-like, which makes untagged images look more or less the same cross-platforms. In other words, old icons would look too dark with the colorspace changes in 10.6, but the Generic RGB colorspace being applied lightens them back to exactly what they looked like before. Not if you’re drawing new icons on a 10.6 system that’s already using the darker colorspace!

Ok, ok. That’s it!
