Uniform Icon Theme by 0rAX0 Uniform Icon Theme by 0rAX0

Introduction


My very first icon theme for Linux!

Okay, so what the heck is that? Why everything is out of shape? Am I going nuts? Maybe.

Uniform is a new icon theme made for Linux (GNOME) desktops. It's made by someone who tested every shape on the planet to get a unique and original theme until he flipped the table and unshaped everything. Consistency can be achieved by maintaining the same pattern instead of drawing the same container. ;)

This is the first release, it's missing A LOT of icons. For now it's inheriting the GNOME icons. Oh, and it has no folders yet. :P

Installation



Copy the content to ~/.icons or /usr/share/icons for system-wide access.

Arch Linux



AUR: aur.archlinux.org/packages/uni…

yaourt -S uniform-icon-theme

Versions

Very nice theme. The only drawback is the lack of panel icons and of the ones for Ubuntu Tweak and VLC. Good job overall.

Any reason why certain icons have a specific shape (or color)? Random? Chance? Secret concept?
Reply
:icon0rax0:
0rAX0 Featured By Owner May 10, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
The shape is random, but the colors choice depends on the icons; sometimes it's taken from the original icon and sometimes not. :)

morgengenuss Featured By Owner May 11, 2014
Humm, the complexity of the icons also varies quite a big deal. That gimp icon really stands out in this respect.

Don't get me wrong, I really love most of your work, I just want to ask about/challenge the underlying rationale of this icon theme a bit.
Reply
:icon0rax0:
0rAX0 Featured By Owner May 11, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Yeah, I'm aware of that. Some icons will eventually be tweaked. As you may know, you don't always start with a clear idea of what you want but you iterate until you get to it.

Please keep the challenges coming, don't worry. :)

Ok :) Anyway, I feel a bit silly with my remarks though as you'll most likely have thought of all this before.

I think – and this is something that frustrates me about some icon themes (e.g. libreoffice do this upstream) – that mimetypes and apps should be distinguishable from each other. When I look at the pdf icon (and obviously you haven't disclosed your concept of mimes), my first (intuitive) thought would be that this is a mime, hence a file, not an app.

Another thing I'd personally avoid is using fonts in these icons. The "2+2" is the calculator I suppose. Why not borrow the idea of so many calc-appicons and use the signs of the 4 simple mathematical operators (+,-,/,*)?

0rAX0 Featured By Owner May 12, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
No, those are good remarks, they're not silly at all.

The PDF icon was a last-minute change, I was just going to do Evince's e, and tried this one instead. I might change it, who knows. :)

I'm trying something different; why not borrow the concept? because it's the concept "of so many calc-appicons". I don't want to play it safe, I'm experimenting; if some concepts don't work I want to see them fail with my own eyes and know why myself. :)
