Muir: the Master Collection

Need some fresh icons for OS X Yosemite? Hate the way Adobe’s apps look in your Dock? Already a fan, but tired of seeking out all the various volumes of Muir? Good news!

This collection unifies my effort to make some nice replacement icons for applications for usage in the OS X Yosemite dock, 35 icons in total with various system and non-system apps and more requests from Twitter and Dribbble.

BLOGPIC MASTER

Comes in ICNS format, includes @2x sizes for all y’all retina folks.

It includes icons for Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Flash, Fireworks, Dreamweaver, Bridge, InDesign, After Effects, Premiere, Lightroom, Cinema 4D, Sparkle, Espresso, Coda, Transmit, Telegram, Twitter, Facebook Messenger, Spotify, Rdio, Slack, Mail, Safari, Skype, Steam, Transmission, System Preferences, Messages, Tor, VLC, Deliveries, Sketch, Image Capture, and Quartz Composer.

James Moore was kind enough to help me make a script that will automatically set the icons for you. It is included in the package as ‘Set Icons Automatically’. Easy peasy!

Muir: Yosemite Icons, Volume III

Part of a continuing effort to make some nice replacement icons for applications for usage in the OS X Yosemite Dock. This time around, some system apps and more requests from Twitter and Dribbble.

Meet Muir! Named after John Muir, a great nature man and advocate of the National Park system that eventually brought us Yosemite National Park as we know it today, Muir is a family of icons that I’ll expand upon over time.

This third set contains more icons than ever! Included are icons for Cinema 4D, Quartz Composer, System Preferences, Mail, Skype, Telegram, Transmission, Transmit, Coda, Espresso, Deliveries, Facebook Messenger, Image Capture and VLC.

Photos: Firewatch at GDC

My friend Cabel asked me to take some photos at the Campo Santo event for Firewatch at GDC.

If you don’t know Firewatch, it’s an excellent game that is in development by a lot of very talented folks like James Benson, Olly Moss, Jake Rodkin, and many more together working under the studio name of Campo Santo.

The party space itself, however, was also something else entirely. Greg Maletic did a super kickass job of creating a space resembling the Firewatch watchtower and a whole ‘forest’ (with real trees). The watcher’s desk, for instance, has all the actual props you can see on and around the desk in this gameplay video.

At the party, people could play the game, meet the developers, etc.

In between the trees you could sit down on a stump and play the game: (as you do)

Here’s Rich Sommer (of Mad Men fame) playing the game. He is actually the voice actor for the protagonist. I imagine it’s kind of trippy to play a game while hearing the character talk in your own voice.

I got to play through the demo there myself and I enjoyed it a lot. I’m definitely looking forward to play the game more as it gets closer to completion.

Thanks to Campo Santo, Panic and everyone else!

Pokémon as Brands

I revisited my old idea of making corporate brand identities for Pokémon, and it seems to have blown up a little. I got about a quarter million unique visits to my less-than-a-month old website for Pictogram, my new small design agency I just started.

So, I wanted to share a few words on here on process and provide a few images behind drawing them up. I spoke to Fast Company about the inspiration for the designs and how this all came to be — read the article here.

Some of them didn’t make the cut, like Squirtle. I didn’t really explore this beyond a few quick sketches, and at some point you gotta call it quits and move on to other fun new side projects!
