Wanted: icon

Post by sbooth » Tue Feb 13, 2007 4:48 am

Any icon designers out there? While the current Play icon is nice (taken from the KDE icon set nuvola) I would like to have a custom one. One idea I'm throwing around is something resembling an old victrola:

or

Of course, I'm not an artist, so I would be open to almost anything.

It's a good idea. Musical notes have been done to death.

As another possibility how about a modern speaker cone? Panic's now retired Audion used that idea for an application icon -

- and variations on it for file icons. Something that immediately says "music" or "sound", that can be used to tie the application and its documents together, and that scales well ...

I wish I knew some budding icon designers - I'd point them to your site.
