Last Updated: 6/9/13


:bulletpurple: Here it is! You guys asked for it and now I'm giving it to you! Here is my first ever icon set made exclusively for the Windows 8/8.1 Start Screen!!

:bulletblue: The set is based off of my Metro UI Icon Set

:bulletorange: THIS SET CURRENTLY INCLUDES 616 512x512 Metro Tiles for today's top applications, internet browsers, Operating Systems/system icons, 1-5 alternative icons for the top websites, AND MORE!

:bulletgreen: To put these tiles on the Start Screen on Windows 8, click here to download OblyTile! OblyTile is necessary for you to change tiles until Windows 8.1 is out! :)

:bulletyellow: Thank you all for being so patient as I get this done, was a bit of work but the result is well-worth it! :D



FEATURED SECTION:


:bulletgreen: Orphydian has made some GREAT complimentary Metro Uinvert icons that you should check out! orphydian.deviantart.com/galle…


:bulletorange: COMMONLY ASKED QUESTION:
Q. "How do I install these icons?"
A. These are JUST IMAGES so you can use these any way you want. If you want to use them for system icons, then my .ICO's are needed and you need to use StarDock IconPackager or IconTweaker.

If you want to use them for Windows 8 Start Screen, my .PNG's are needed and you need to get OblyTile: forum.xda-developers.com/showt…
Or you can get these, made EXCLUSIVELY for Windows 8: dakirby309.deviantart.com/art/…




:bulletred: RULES FOR USAGE: You may use these icons however you like, BUT if you post them online for others to see, you must provide appropriate credit to me and this set and selling ANYTHING that contains my icons in any way is strictly prohibited UNLESS you are willing to give me a portion of your earnings via Paypal, on ANY site. Period!

Thank you so very much! :)




:bulletorange: For a Business Transaction:


If you're interested in using these icons or interested in having me make something for you for a commercial product or service, you can contact me by sending me a Note here on DeviantART! :)

I like the modern look it has a clean look to it. The clean look also provide a sophisticated look and is easy on the eye. I prefer this Tile set and recommend it ,because it blends in well with the original windows 8 tiles and does not appear distorted. The clean look also improves the usability of windows with the ability to add your favorite apps to a appropriate tile reducing loading time from hiding your hideous icons from the start screen. Overall i would recommend this tile set above any else ,because it just feels right and well done!
What do you think?

I'm aware of the the logo change, it changed a year or two ago. However, I'm currently no longer updating this icon set. :( Sorry

Oh, that's fine. Thanks! Just searched Google for an updated version and edited it so that the icon would move slightly upwards for some space for the text... lol

I wanted to say Thank you! I recently reformatted my computer lost a lot of icons, that I had gather from the internet through image searches. To have a massive collection of some of the most popular programs out there is amazing. Hope the best for you, and thank you for sharing this openly with us.

I love these icons! The only thing is that the original icons made by Microsoft have a slight gradient. Maybe you could implement that in an update to this pack. But other than that, very nice work!

PS: How long does it take you making one icon?

:icondakirby309:
dAKirby309 Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks :) and yeah, I realize there is a gradient on the official icons. But I don't think I'll implement that, at least not for quite some time. Currently not working on this set at all.

And the time required for each icon varies depending on design, shape, detail, and other things. Most don't take long, just a few minutes perhaps? 10-45 minutes =P

Hi man! Could you make an icon for Autodesk's AutoCad?

:icondakirby309:
dAKirby309 Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Maybe, but I'm currently not working on any Metro UI set, sorry. Right now I'm working on the Flat Colors Icon Set.. and I have already made an icon for AutoDesk Autocad and just about every other major AutoDesk app! :) I was actually planning on maybe releasing a third Preview to it within the next couple days!

It's a lot of work to get them done and the best quality I can get them. I'll try and get them done soon! :)

Thanks! But yea, most android/iOS apps aren't available on most platforms, plus there are a ton of apps to worry about. Plus it's a lot more work than you may think to make them and get them posted, synced, etc. :( Sorry about that.

Umm, I'm not sure what you mean. Do you mean how to add separators to the Windows 8 Start Screen or add separators to a dock such as ObjectDock or RocketDock?
