Three application icons in Arcade Daze style

Posted on 30 May, 2008 at 2:52am

If a computer can be said to be a place, then my computer is the place that I call home. I spend more time there than anywhere else, love it and get sick of it, and get a bizarrely human satisfaction from decorating it. It stands to reason, then, that one of my great passions (and not-so-secret shames) is customizing my OS.

I’ve recently become enamored of Gedeon Maheux’s vintage game-themed Arcade Daze icon sets over at the Iconfactory, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that when I installed the first application set that almost all the apps I have in my dock were updated. Being the completionist that I am, I created my own icons for the missing applications: Firefox, Xcode and Interface Builder.

The two developer tools were surprisingly not too difficult, but Firefox was more challenging and I’m still not entirely happy with it. Here’s hoping Gedeon covers it in the next application set. In the meantime, you can grab all three icons here. (And check out my now fully pixelated dock!)

  • That’s pretty cool, I really love the all-pixelated dock! I wish my dock had so few items in it.

  • So awesome I stole one for my twitter icon.

  • Not bad Anne! I like how all three turned out, especially the XCode one. Interesting to see you layering objects with their own strokes instead of merging them with a single outer stroke. I struggled with this on mine for a long time. Some of mine are layered and some are merged. At any rate, well done!

  • love these! Thanks for filling the glaring holes in my Arcade Daze-d Dock!

  • [...] I filled the holes in my Arcade Daze dock with this post, but my insane sense of completionism compelled me to add a few more apps I use frequently: [...]

  • thank you so much for these, my dock is finally complete!

  • Awesome! Thanks so much for making these!

  • In my opinion you commit an error. Write to me in PM.
