More frisbees.

Yeah that's what become sooner or later, well some I still have some very old disk's around for media that i care a lot, and I should really make backup copy's of them before time plays a trick on them. Attention you should place them for recycling in the end. ;)

The DVD one now (64x64, and 22x22 need a bit of work..)..... I made some improvements to the other ones btw. The poll running on the side, seems to be getting interesting , with a tight fight between "finishing the icon set" and "working on the widget theme".

P.S. update. after making this post I realized that the DVD logo could use some pixel tweaking in the 64x64 128x128 and 256x256... and here is the result.


As usual you can check the svgz sources for each of them in kde svn, in kdesuport.
Btw if you are wondering were you might find them... type this in your console 'svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/kdesupport/oxygen-icons' of course after installing subversion and going in the console to the place were you wants them to be.

Great icons, especially those small ones, with the custom Dvd logo!

you should submit all this to the open clip art library.

Great stuff!

Really liked what you did for dvd logo and small icons (that turned out to be better than what I was talking about)!

I'm hoping you're gonna do the same for all of these disk icons.

Real nice work, man!

You are a master, can't believe, no one pays you to do this. I'm afraid we will end up losing you to some company that as nothing to do with KDE or open source.

Ian Monroe said...

again I think you're breaking trademark!

Just use a generic 'DVD' italic lettering instead of their whole logo.

Pinheiro said...

@ Ian Monroe its obviously "Fair use" of the logos. But I have contacted them is order to sort it out...
Worst case scenario I will remove them, its their loss any way...

J. Janz said...

@Pinheiro: I think, in that (worst) case, I think a better alternative would be Ian Monroe's suggestion. But only if there's actual trademark bad use (so we still have more information than just disks with colors).

Keep them comming! ;-)

+1 on this; not only is Nuno very talented, but he also seems very humble and pleasant to work with. I wish a FOSS company would snap the guy up :(

I like the current style but sometimes I wish someone would do an icon set like this early oxygen draft:
http://www.oxygen-icons.org/wp-content/themes/oxy/images/figure3.png
especially for small icons. Fresher and more realistic than Tango but not as shiny as the current oxygen...

Anyway, these K3B icons look great and fit the current look. So well done...

thomas said...

The icons look great, but I wonder why there is a tiny black spot on the lower right of the DVD logo. (only visible on the big icons)

Pinheiro said...

@thomas its the TM :)

Robin said...

please... to avoid problems, please do not use the official logos for all that DVD and BD stuff.
Even if your work is covered by a fair use policy - I doubt that it also covers distributors like e.g. Novell - they sell their enterprise product and I guess they would have to apply for a licence which they won't probably get because that kind of software is not licensable.
I'm not really sure, but please do not assume that Open Source is automatically fair use, free (as in beer) etc.

Pinheiro said...

@Robin they are free to remove those icons, we do this right now and did it for a long time, Crystal icon set had the dvd logo the compact disk logo the usb logo the firehire logo etc, etc...
I have contcted the howners of the trademark's in order for me to use them and sign what ever documentation they see fit.
If i get a replay syaing We cant use them I will remove them.
Prety sure I wont remove them its in their hown interest.

I dont think at all that those trademarks bring problems because Mr. Pinheiro does not use them on other purposes than their original meanings, DVD and Blu-Ray disks.

Things would be different if those trademarks would be used on other meanings, like icons for text editor and instant messenger applications.

The DvD icon and the Blu-Ray icons does not mean anything else than the disks here and it is actually a free marketing for those companies.

Congrats, those look beautiful.

But IMHO there's something wrong with the 2nd (updated) set - especially the small ones somehow don't look right.
