dave shea talks about the newly released adobe photoshop cs3 icons. and i have to agree that the icons are terrible! you can see the simple design in the image below (click to enlarge).
i spent about 9 months in art school while i was trying to figure out what the hell i wanted out of college. during my time there, i designed a few icons, and i did very poorly at it. that being said, i have to say that if i had come in with icons looking like that, i would’ve gotten worse remarks than i did on the designs i did come up with (i always got “you need to push the envelope” lol).
listen, adobe – when i went to art school, i was surrounded with talented people who were able to create some of the most creative and fantastic work (icons, etc.). couldn’t you hire one of them?
