Dave,

Let me start stating that I love your work and I use your icons in my desktop. That said, an app icon based splash could use the default (crystal) icons. However, the default icons in Kontact do not fit well one another (yours look much better).

The crystal Todo, KNotes and News icons do not fit with their crystal conterparts. Is there something you can do about it? (Like offering replacements that fit better the crystal defaults for these icons?

Cheers,

Carlos Woelz

I'd suggest:

- removing the kde, the klogo, and the 3.2..
- making it about twenty pixels taller
- putting the kontact text under everything in the white area.. and centered

There is only thing that looks (IMHO) a litlle bit irritating - the big empty head. Other than that it conveys the idea of a PIM Suite very well, and it looks nice.

umh, maybe your right, I'll think what to put on the face, maybe just a smile and little eyes, let me see ...

I agree that a smile and eyes would be great. But you'll figure out what will be the best. After all you're the icon king :) keep up your great work

Don't do nothing with face. Do something what will look like hair. :)

lol, put a 'post it note' on his head!!!
only joking
But I am unsure why a lot of themes lately have those kinda faceless men.
I think I've missed the point somewhere along the way. I am a terrible designer, but I thought about having a super imposed almost transparent calendar in the background which might look good with the other stuff you got there.. No idea if that makes sense to you.
