(15.Jun.04) Still Going Strong
It was about this time eight years ago that Corey, Talos and Ged decided to create a webpage (hosted on AOL), that would serve as a place where people could come and download icons for their Macs. 199 freeware sets and over 5,700 individual icons later, we’re still here and kicking. Pretty good for a group of people that push pixels into the shapes of tiny little things. Of course, we wouldn’t be here without the hard work and dedication of all of the individuals that keep The Iconfactory up and running smoothly, as well as our loyal fans.
Four years ago we announced our 100th Set on the cusp of the release of Mac OS X. Today, we are proud to release our latest freeware collection, The IF 200th Set. This set of system replacement icons harkens back to the heady days of Mac OS 9 and the beloved “Copland” style of desktop folders and files. All of the 32×32 and 16×16 versions of this set have been tweaked by hand for maximum “Pixel-clickiness” and look great even in the modern environment of OS X. The set also includes some Iconfactory themed desktop pictures to complete your factory makeover. The IF 200th Set works great with CandyBar, our system icon replacement utility.
We sincerely hope you enjoy our 200th release and invite you to stick around for the next 100 sets. Drop us a line if you feel so inclined, and remember, we’ll keep making them, if you keep downloading!
