Adobe CS replacement icons

Adobe CS replacement icons

What are these icons?

This is the replacement of Adobe Creative Suite 4 default icons. Some time ago, when Adobe released CS3 (and then CS4), many designers around the world were not happy with the new style of application icons and came up with their own ideas (example, example, example, example). I know I am a couple of years late :-) but you might like my icons as well.

Why did I design them?

I was mostly inspired by this article by Mike Hopkins, and I agree that:

There were, however, some ideas in default icons that I liked: I also felt that Mike Hopkins' icons were too much work of art, too complex. I tried to keep them simple but at the same time I put as much meaning as I could into each icon, using apps' interfaces as inspiration. Most icons have "rulers" on top and left, Photoshop icon means "pixels", Illustrator means "vector", Lightroom means "histogram" etc.

Are my icons better?

I don't think so! For me this was just a quick spare-time project, and Adobe surely spend more time and efforts. But my approach is different and so far, I like it more. If time permits I will polish the icons. Meanwhile, your feedback is welcome!

How wonderful! I've always hated Adobe's "Periodic table" icons My only complaint is that I love all of them except Photoshop! They all clearly communicate their function at a glance (especially Dreamweaver, Lightroom, Illustrator); I know it's very hard to embody Photoshop because it does so much, but the pixels and selection tool don't seem to do it justice. I'm not as creative as you, and can't think of a suitable metaphor... but otherwise very well done!

Just in case you wanted to see :-) Here are variants of Photoshop icons I tried:

Robert Marton 26 אוגוסט 2009
Great work, Vlad! Great-great work!

Karl Yeurl 26 אוגוסט 2009
Agreed, your final Photoshop icon is the best one. Like Kaz said, they're well-made, they communicate quite well the various functions of the programs (maybe a bit less AE, I would say, I use to use AE more to do some fx than to make a proper video, but anyway, tha work's great). And even though Mike Hopkin's icons are… well, let's say way more complicated, I think yours are more usable. Great work, good idea !

Great job! These are cool. What about making a "CS4" icon. I place the suite in a folder and place it in the dock. A "CS4" icon for the folder would be awesome. Thanks.

Thanks Vlad for sharing this! Great job!!!

Vlad, i really should say it is something i would not like to see on my PC.. some kind of 3d effect would be much better..

Alexis Brille 10 ספטמבר 2009
Dude, great job. I liked how you kept the colors so that they're still distinctive in the dock.

Cec Medin: oops! my mistake. Please try now, should work.

Yours pictures are amazing !!!

Vladimir, I am a furniture maker from Taos, New Mexico , United States. I am very interested in this traditional Siberian wooden architecture. I love your photographs. I would like to learn more about the history of these houses and origins of the design elements. I would like to learn more about the range of cities and towns where these houses can be found. Are there any groups I could contact who are involved in wooden house preservation? I may eventually like to plan a trip to Siberia to study these houses in person.

Ariel Diaz 6 נובמבר 2013
I like your work so much!!! It's perfect to me!

Ingrid 13 פברואר
You are an artist in the deepest, truest sense of the word. I was amazed at these beautiful bits of history. You may call yourself a photographer (per excellence.) Thank you!

Никогда не была в Сибири. По моему представлению, это сказочный край. После просмотра фото я уверена, не ошибалась. Это чудо! Это - величие и торжество! Хочется самой увидеть. Спасибо!

Oh my, Vlad, these are gorgeous photos! I arrived here via a link here: http://trueslant.com/joshuakucera/2009/09/28/the-endangered-wooden-houses-of-siberia/. I want to do a Google Earth Community post about Siberian wood houses and wonder if you would allow me to use a few of your photos to illustrate architectural details of these treasures. In fact, I feel they are international treasures, not just Russian. Cheers, Diane Putnam (USA) diane9247@gmail.com

Vlad Gerasimov 26 אוגוסט 2009
Kaz: yeah it was not easy. I always knew I wanted Photoshop icon to show pixels (as this is pixel-based editor, opposite to Illustrator), and after many Photoshop icon designs thrown in trash, this is the best I could achieve!

Haz 26 אוגוסט 2009
I actually like default Adobe icons, as they are simple, yet distinct from the icons of other programs, what makes fast identification (in dock, for example) possible. But I like your icons too. Your idea is not another variation on "let's take default Adobe icons and add them more GLOSS", it's not an overkill as these by Mike Hopkins (seriously, they're super-detailed, but is it possible to actually USE them?). You did really good work there, making something original, but also practical.

Pete 26 אוגוסט 2009
Marching ants would be the PS-trademark, I guess.

Dwane Arthur 26 אוגוסט 2009
I love these. Now I learned how to change them. You do "Good Work". Thank You Dwane

Avalars 26 אוגוסט 2009
Simply gorgeous. One thing tho. Why is After Effects the only icon that has the glossy curved cut in the middle, whilst the others' background is consistently and only a radial gradient?

Jana 30 אוגוסט 2009
Je to dobrá stránka...

Item 31 אוגוסט 2009
I don't know what to say? AWESOME? Cool!

Omer Uzun 3 ספטמבר 2009
Wow. Great job. Thank u.

Oomu 7 ספטמבר 2009
I prefer the other version of the photoshop icons. The second in fact. I would love to have them in 512x512 pixels.

keisuke 8 ספטמבר 2009
Just beautiful!! I always admire ur works..

Cec Medin 6 אוקטובר 2009
Vlad, I just try to download Icons for Win and I'd following msge: Fatal error: Call to undefined function mystringfilter() in /home/vladstud/domains/vladstudio.com/public_html/adobe_cs4_replacement_icons/download.php on line 8 I've got Adobe Master Collection CS4. Any reason(s) why? Love to have them on my comp. Thanks heaps

Alex 6 דצמבר 2009
Super icons! And your the first one that I see, that did not forget to include Lightroom.

Angela Siegfried 18 ינואר 2013
These photos move me. They are so beautiful, in part because the houses are made out nature, wood is so pretty, and because of the way that you captured them with your camera, technique, and eye. It is sad that they are disappearing. They should be lived in, I'd like one with a tin roof to hear the raindrops on. :-) The contrast between the newer more sterile looking buildings in the background of one of the photos and the lovely wood houses is almost shocking.

Lynn 24 אפריל 2013
I love your photographs...truly beautiful photos and what a tribute to the artisans who built the structures. They are gorgeous buildings. I have a question about the windows...why do some of the windows have smaller, hinged windows that can open by themselves? For conversation? Passing items outside? It is a curious design that I haven't seen before here in the U.S....and...Vlad, I love your work. It makes me happy everytime I visit your webpage...

Harriette L 23 אוגוסט 2013
Beautiful photos! I would love to visit where you live, it seems like such a beautiful place! Thank you.

Gypsy 5 ספטמבר 2013
I'm not shore i could say anything new after reading several of the comments already made. But i am struck by one thing, the heart and soul that went into building theses house's seams to be something you share also. So i cannot be too surprised that your work shows the same. Sadly, in my country we do not. A big Gu'day from Perth, Western Australia.

Laurie Dalton 24 מרץ
These photos are stunning, and carry such deep feeling. I return to this part of your website over and over. Thank you for sharing this special part of the world, and for 'preserving' these amazing houses.
