Yeah, that is one example, but I personally think (if you are referring
to the document-properties icon), that there the contrast serves good, I
can point to some examples where the contrast between border and the
rest of the icon is too big (for example edit-select-all at 24x24 size).

Aaah... folders are very very bad example. There is a lot of problems
with them and they have only 48x48 version, really bad. They MUST be

From artist point of view I can tell it is much harder to create good
looking perspective icon, from user point of view I can tell that I like
the isometric perspective much more than the one used by tango or gnome
icon theme.

Err, first is too bright? I don't think so, this is very very
subjective. Also, the third icon is overaly bright as well, only the
bottom is shaded.

I am against glossy style (reflections, shiness, etc.) in Echo icons,
but I agree with the mail icons, they could be brighter.

Yep, you need not to fear that Echo will be in F8 - it is far from
complete... We are staying with Mist (I actually think that the
Mist/Gnome combination is nicer than Tango, even though the style is
very similar...)

We'll do :)
