Hello

I've been searching for a specific sort of icon set for android apps, but haven't been able to find it. My idea is to have an icon set of stickies / post itīs in different colors, angles, sizes, roation and with either text, drawings or text and drawings for the icon itself.

To give you a better picture of what I'm imagining I've found some pictures to illustrate fractions of the idea - "combined" they kinda look like what I imagine

Hope you can help me or guide me in the direction of something alike !

Seems simple enough to make, I've actually worked on something like this before but never finished it because I didn't really imagine myself using it. I probably still have my resources gathered, and could materialize it for you - but be warned that I'm not a professional and the amount of time I have to work on it is limited. If you want to work something out, send me a pm. There are better designers out there, so if you find someone else to do it I won't be offended.

I'm not saying I suck, I'm just letting you know I'm not the best. Your idea is fairly easy to implement, so it shouldn't take a professional. Anywho, just let me know.

Be my guest ! I have an idea of them in a homescreen setup, where the wallpaper is a vintage white polished fridge (like 50's kind of style) up close and then with all the post its apps *Haven't been able to find such wallpaper either tho :(

Angry well
I like the idea and could probably pull it off... the only thing bugging me is the random post-it rotation... if they could all face the same direction i'd do it...

but otherwise...

ok
So after much thought i decided to do this set... without compromise, different colors and positions... this is the most logistically challenging set so far...


I hope there's a demand for this because its gigantic work

and its coming, with the ability to choose the color and position of every icon. For example, lets say you want the facebook icon, you'll be able to have five choice for it... This is going to be a lot of icons... trust me.

I hope there's a demand for this because its gigantic work

Looking very forward to see the result of this and how it looks in use! :) Good luck from here!

Glad you got Phlash on this! For one, I'm super busy right now and don't have the time.

And Phlash is an amazing artist! I remember when I first came across Tha Icon months ago, I used those icons for at least two months straight!

He'll do a great job, you won't be disappointed
