I said I would have a go at designing icons for Mastodon, so here's a mockup with them integrated 🙂raw.githubusercontent.com/snwh

@snwh Liked the rocket as the boost icon but I think the log out icon could be something else.

Well done 😄

@frd the classic metaphors for logout are rather dull.

@snwh Agree! But the boost icon being similar to the log out might make it loose its unique charm. Just a thought.

@frd icons shouldn't have unique charm, they should have consistent charm. ;)


@snwh @frd I don't know I have to agree with Farid here - the logout icon and the boost icon looks too similar.

Also as you say Sam, "logout" icons are just weird - I suppose its like "save" icons. The analogy is stuck in there

@frd @snwh

(also they are very cool - just to have that said out loud)

@ohyran @snwh I second that! Sorry if it gave the wrong impression.

@ohyran @frd I know. But you're ruining my fun with the icons. ;) I'll likely use a common metaphor in the end if they get adopted.

@snwh @frd THAT is enough reason in my book. If we can't design and enjoy it - then wth is the meaning?

@ohyran I enjoy the process as much as the result (maybe even more so) including the part where I defend or debate the design. :)
