Description:

"Steel Icons" is an icon set for KDE comprised of Steel/Silver icons with shadows. I know everybody loves the Crystal/Aquafusion/Marbles Icons (with the exception of aquafusion, I do -- its just too blue! :) but I saw Metrope, and thought, wow, those don't look like they're trying to be OS X, they look like, well, like Linux (actually, like KDE; I hate Gnome's look, it just looks childish). So I set out to design some icons that weren't based on OS X, Windows, or who-knows what else. Tell me what you think, please.




Changelog:

1.2.5 - Straightened out version numbers with themes.freshmeat.org, added apps/devices, 153 icons

02/12/03 - New Screenshots (no liquid-stipples)

0.3 - Completely redone mimetypes, redone apps, and new apps/filesystems icons. Design is generally softer and less harsh

0.2 - Hard drive icons have been added for KDE, Linux, Windows, and MacOS. There are also icons in different colors for a few apps, and the old trash icon has been replaced.

0.1 - Initial Release

 I like them

Nice job, but I think they are going to be niche icons ... Not because they are bad (they're great for what they are), but they lack to much color ... which is to be expected with 'steele' icons.

Am still waiting for some completely original general purpose icon set that can rival crystal ...

How about using copper or brass as an auxiliary color? It would perhaps eliminate the monotonous look of some of these icons.

Also beryllium (orange/yellowish) and other metals... I would avoid cobalt as it tends to give blue composites ;-D I think a metal icon set, with photo-realistic icons would be great.

Hi all,

I agree too ... The icons are really great piece of work, but they do lack colors... A little bit more color would probably make these icons a lot lot better ....

These icons are really cool and really original (Cristal are very good but too XP-ish).
If you add some other metal shades I will surely use them :)

I do like this icon set. Very much. It's a good effort, and it sure give KDE a "unique" and "personal" look.

However, I find the shapes (and just the shapes) to be a little too cartoonish. Take for instance the K icon: I think it's too much skewed. Also the trash bin looks like a metallized hamburger wrapper ;-). Please, don't take this for a criticism, but for what it is: a simple suggestion.

 Nice idea

That's a nice set. It'd be interesting to see if you could blend in some other metallic shades to give it a bit more colour without making them too colourful and cartoony.

If you could produce a whole set of icons for this style (i.e. all of the hicolor icons) that'd be really fantastic work for KDE. Just a thought, if you were to try this: with mimetypes, it might be an idea to not make them too metallic, otherwise it might just turn into metal overload. If you could make the application icons, and the window "decoration" icons metallic, and then have the icons that are in the contents of the window non-metallic but still suiting the style, that'd look very nice.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
