I was a bit oblique last time I wrote about icon design; I said I’ve been thinking about the subject lately, but I didn’t say why.
After watching the happenings over at IconBuffet, StockIcons, and the new IconShoppe, it struck me last year that stock icon design might be something interesting to try out myself. I’ve worked on icon design projects in the past, so I knew I could do it, it was just a matter of finding the time.
Well, that finally happened. I’m happy to announce my introductory set, Chalkwork Basic, which you can buy starting today.
Chalkwork is ultimately a much larger set of icons unified by common style and colour; Basic is simply the first pack of what I hope to be many more. There are around 250 in the family so far, but at one point I finally decided to focus on a smaller subset and just get them out there to make sure there’s a demand before I produce the rest.
I’d like to see the family grow to a thousand plus in total, but that all depends on what happens next. So if you or your favourite site/application developers are looking for a consistenly designed, high quality set of icons, make sure to spread the word!
