:icondakoder:
This icon set is personally my favorite metro icon set out there. Everything about this is amazing.
Let's start with the vision, as in what it looks like. The icons look amazing, anywhere you put them. The color selections are very wise. Although, I kind of think that there is a bit too many light blue colored icons. The square shape of the icons make them look great when they are together. These icons are also a perfect fit with Windows 8.
Well, about originality. These icons are not exactly a new idea. They are made for the well-known Metro UI that came with Windows 8. Still, this icon sets is a very popular one, and many of these icons have never been seen before.
I don't know about what technique was used, but whatever technique was used, it seems that you knew what you were doing, as it turned out great. If I look closely at the icons, none of them look stretched. The white icons are perfectly centered on their tile.
Impact? Well, I'm pretty sure that icons aren't made to "evoke strong emotions", which is what impact is for. I'm going to talk about a different impact. These icons have become very popular. Many, many, websites use them (some without giving credit :o). I also think that these icons look amazing with Rocketdock, and they're the only reason I downloaded Rocketdock.
Overall, I think you did a great, splendid, job on these icons. If there weren't categories, I would have given you a 5 star overall! Keep creating icons!

I'm still working out some issues (it's not the final version yet: psdescomplicado.blogspot.com.b…) But you helped me a lot! :)
I'll thank you in my blog and refer/credit you ASAP/finished :)

Thanks, once again, :)
---------------------
 ps: I'm not a big shot/don't have much crowd of followers.... but still, I hope, that helps  :)

pps: I absolutely hate working with vectors, I'm too bad with them! ( I have an idea here, for my new logo...but I can't bring it to work because of that...
 I could paint, sure... but I want it like "metro" vector style... :)

It's way more hard than it looks... I still trying to figure out how to use illustrator... ha!

Cool! Thanks for letting me know :)

Aww, yeah working with vectors is pretty challenging when nothing nothing more than the basics. Most of what I learned in vector art was self-taught, but started by learning in Illustrator/graphic design classes at school. So it takes some time, but you eventually learn how to use it. :)

It's very challenging indeed. I like painting realism, it's hard to, time consuming... challenging as well... but I think is way more hard to translate ideas into simples concepts/vector/symbols that, actually, work.
You have to think clearly before you start ... and keep up with your idea without "meeh, that'll do..." (I do that often, I'm too lazy I guess)

Anyway, I'll be on your watch to get inspired into practicing it :)

regards!

I'm pretty much the exact opposite. I have simple design ideas and it's very hard for me to make something super intricate and abstract. I am horrible at painting but vectors and graphics are what I really enjoy doing. :) Props to you! Painting is certainly a challenging skill to have.

It sure has taken a lot of work.

I'd say an appropriate Creative Commons license must also have been attached to it to make legally binding; like CC-BY-NC, which requires attribution and no commercial use. (Of course, you can choose another too.)

i have noticed there are system icons like action center icons and stuff inside. . .how can i possibly replace them ? except for shell32.dll injection. . .


//edit: Sadly i discovered these are useless. THe app icon is to small in the center of the tile. A lot of people (myself included) have "use small taskbar icons" enabled, and if you do so, these icons are a complete mess. Just a colorfull tile with some smudge in the center. Completely indistinguishable.

Yeah, sorry about that. :/ That is one reason I have the Uinvert icons though, if you wanna check those out. :)dakirby309.deviantart.com/art/…

And the pack installer changes system icons to those icons. dakirby309.deviantart.com/art/… maybe this helps!

Could you just make an installer for this...I find it very hard to change every icon one by one using iconpackager..I really appreciate your work, thanks a lot

Sorry :( I'm no longer working on this set, at least for now. I have very little time for projects like this since I started college. Plus I'm not a pro at installers, IconPackager's the best I can do. If you want to make an IconPackager theme for this set and upload with credits, feel free! :)

Thanks for the suggestion! I may get to it one day.
