PTP's LauncherPro Docks & Icons
------------------------------------------------------

Here you will find all of my various dock and icon based creations for your Android powered device. I am always looking to come up with a new look for my phone, and now I want to help give your phone a face lift as well. Each dock is designed to work with LauncherPro on most Android handsets. The icons packs also are made to work with LauncherPro unless otherwise stated. They are made to look as good as possible with the known size and dimensions of the icons that LauncherPro uses.

Got A Request? While I do tend to constantly come up with new ideas on my own, I am always on the look out for someone with a good idea. Post in the thread with your idea, or request for a modified version of any dock or icon pack. I am also always on the look for new ideas for the icons themselves. I try to steer clear of random programs, but ones we all use, or phone functions I have not made one for are all on the table.

TO DOWNLOAD A DOCK, RIGHT CLICK ON THE DOCK IMAGE, AND CLICK SAVE!!

PTP Dock Pack - Updated 03/07/2011


The Docks
------------------------------------------------------

Cleared Up
At first I was making docks just for me, then I randomly decided to make one to hand out to the masses. This was my creation; a weird blend of what I personally like, and some graphics techniques I hadn't used in ages. For a first round back in the realm of Photoshop, I say not too shabby.

Preview:


Dock:

Merge
A dock I used for quite some time; Merge was a complete redo of a dock found on the LauncherPro forums. I took the idea and moved the app drawer button to the middle (not a fan of side based ones) and also made the app drawer icon a static part of the dock. Still one of my favorites.

Preview:


Dock:

Encircled

After 'Cleared Up' I wanted to do a simpler less busy dock using the same basic idea and method. Encircled is what came of that goal, and my current dock of choice. Encircled is also the main dock I tested and based my 'Punch-Out' icon pack around.

Preview:


Dock:

Enclosed
After completing my first icon pack, I wanted to make a dock specifficaly for 'Punch-Out' so I took the color scheme of 'Encircled' and made it a solid dock. At first I planned, like 'Encircled', to have a Light and Dark variant, but after testing I found it did not work as well. So I went with a normal style dock, and one with a static app drawer button in the middle.

Preview:


Dock:

Embers
Take one look at my computer and you will see I love text based icons. Embers was an attempted at text based dock that used the icons themselves to add an interesting effect. Sadly I did not at the time know the exact way LP handled icons, and it was a large fail. But both the dock, and the icons ended up turning out alright after some tweaking.

Preview:


Dock:

Flat Grain
After the fail of 'Embers' I had to try again for a good text based dock. This time I went with flat colors, and a more grainy effect. Also the icons created for this dock look almost like they are sliding on a track, an effect I plan to use heavily in the future.

Preview:


Dock:

Real Droids Wear Pink
A quick dock done to work with one of the new colors for 'Punch-Out'. This was a request I did quite quickly as it was my first request.

Preview:


Dock:

Utility
As somewhat of a graphic artist, there are times a good idea (with me often one taken from something I've seen) ends up turning out more like a "what the hell was I thinking?" kind of idea. This is one of those. To be honest I thought it was going well right up until the end. And a cookie to whoever can guess what my real world inspiration was for this And why no icons? None of mine work well with it :P I would have to make a custom set. If someone is actually interested in this I will. But yea...

Preview:


Dock:

The Clearing
There are tons and tons of these solid color slightly transparent docks out there. I have been avoiding them, but they work great with 'Glassy' icons. I have been using and loving the rounded box one. They are very simple, took no time to make and yet work fairly well. And yes the single small bar at the bottom is an idea I like. Its my odd sense of style.

Preview:


Dock:

Carbon Footprint
What started as me trying to make a half sized dock for 'Glassy' icon pack, turned into this, and I am very happy with its outcome. I have this carbon fiber pattern I never get to use, but love; I also have not gotten to do one of these 3D effect docks. So I put the two together, and got this. In the preview you see a custom wallpaer which extends the look of the dock up, click the link and set it as your wallpaper to get the full effect!!
PTP's Wallpapers For Android
As you can tell its meant to not scroll with your phone. To get this effect on LauncherPro, while on the homescreen, click Menu > Preferences > Appearance Settings then check the box next to the option Disable Wallpaper Scrolling.

Preview:


Dock:

Colors Of Ember
Someone request 'Embers' in a different color, and I admit I had already thought of it. I got a little carried away, so unlike most times, I am making a seperate little area for this one instead of adding it to 'Embers'.

Preview:


Dock:


Tabbed
Quick attempt at a tabbed style dock. I will try and expand on this later as well as more colors for it.

Preview:


Dock:


Transparent
I wanted to make a specific dock for the new Reflected icon pack, and really like the way "The Clearing" docks looked with the text based icons, so I modified the idea of "The Clearing" and added much more detail and a baked in app drawer icon. I was also playing around with rounding the edges, and came up with a unique look i quite like.

Preview:


Dock:


The previews you see above are not taken on a phone. I use a handmade layered .PSD which allows me to change the background, dock, and icons at will simply by copying and pasting new designs in. As such expect the look and feel of each to be slightly different on your device. Each preview is modeled after my Nexus One, and is resized down to 360x600px as to decrease bandwidth usage.

The Icons
------------------------------------------------------
Punch Out Icon Pack - V.3
These icons were made for 'Encircled' & 'Enclosed' docks, but work well with many different dock designs. The icons come in a Dark and Light version, and three different bottom glow colors; the original Blue, Green, Pink & Red. 25 Icons in each color and glow.
All icons are 66x66px

Preview:





File: Punch-Out.Zip

Embers Font Icon Pack - V.2
Made to work with the 'Embers' dock. Font based icon set, full words. Updated to work with my better understanding of how the LP icon's are sized.
All icons are 85x85px

Preview:


File: Embers-Font.Zip

Flat Grain Font Icon Pack
Made to work with the 'Flat Grain' dock. These are a font based icon set, and unlike Embers quite a few are abreviated to make the font a bit bigger on the screen.
All icons are 100x100px

Preview:


File: Flat-Grain-Font.Zip

Glassy Icon Pack
I loved most of the actual symbols in Punch-Out, but really started to fall out of love with its general look, so I remade it. Glassy uses the symbols from Punch-Out as a basis, then I refined almost all of them, and added quite a few new ones bringing the total number of icons in this pack to 35.
All icons are 66x66px

Preview:


File: Flat-Grain-Font.Zip

Reflected Icon Pack
I love text based icons, its what I use on my desktop. I also really liked how I did the "Flat Grain Font" icons. So i took the basic idea of Flat-Grain, got rid of the arrow, and added a reflection. I am currently loving this on my phone and hope you will too.
All icons are 100x52px

The Icon's look great (the 4 you have so far, and in both colors), looking forward to you actually releasing an icon pack.

lol sadly those aren't my icons. I would love to take credit for 'em. I am still working on the initial icon for my first pack, so the design isn't final. I've got like 3 other docks almost done along with the two you see here (i work better with lots of projects going on at once) so i decided to go ahead and post what I had.

I should have put those weren't mine i guess xD Although I can post that set if you want them.

Here are the Icons. I don't know where I got them, but its what I currently use. Making my own version inspired by them for my first Icon set.

So anyone actually interested in the docks, or just the icons i happen to be using :P

Here is a preview of the Icons I'm working on. Using the parts of the icon set you see already for now as a placeholder. Getting the styles and things worked out, then I'll do custom icons inside each one. But that takes a while. This should give you an idea of the first Icon set though.



As you can tell its built for Encircled. I'm doing one for the Dark version as well.

It's SiMi Clock Widget. I actually have BW and used it since I got my phone (you can see the weather at the bottom of the latest screenshot) but once I found SiMi i fell in love with its looks and simplicity.
