Re: Echo bad



Greeting Jakub,

Thank you for taking the time to comment about Echo icons.

Quoting Jakub 'Livio' Rusinek <liviopl pl gmail com>:

I have this tool in orange and dark grey. =)

That is relative, not all folders are shiny. Martin perfectly gave the reason
about isometric perspective and the avoidance of shininess for all icons which
are overused.

We are people who learned about mistakes. It is our very first time we work on
icon themes.

Pidgin main icon is flat and definitevely not Tango style. Echo is designed with
isometric perspective aiming to be the natural successor of the defunct
Bluecurve icons.


Starting this week, I will resume echo development. Summer class is over and I
have two weeks of break.
