Ubuntu Poster with PICOL icons

Clock Mini IconNovember 19th, 2010 written by

Thanks to Alessandro Gubitosi, who just send me this poster with PICOL icons, which promotes the Ubuntu in Italy and can be used by the rest of the world. It´s great PICOL can help the great and open Ubuntu project with it´s own openness. It would be great to have PICOL as UI icons in Ubuntu ;)

Alessandro is a member of “Gruppo Promozione Ubuntu” (the Italian Ubuntu Marketing Team). He is active in the fields of green marketing, art direction and web development. You can get more information on Alessandro on his website www.gotanotherway.com.

That´s not all Alessandro did with and especially for PICOL. He also mentioned as an aside that he did PICOL generator. THAT´S AWESOME — I LOVE THE INTERNET. He built it overnight! That´s version 1.1beta and he wants to push it forward :)

I will keep you updated on the PICOL generator.

By the way this is the first post on this blog matching all categories (Contributor Work, Diagrams, Icons in use, New Icons & [Great] News).

Vuvuzela Icon

eöööööööööööö — The  Vuvuzela is definitely the unofficial symbol for the soccer tournament with teams from all over the world, which takes place in South Africa right now. (Am I allowed to say the original name, which is a trademark? I remember many people got sued the last time)
Whatever. I designed a Vuvuzela icon for the PICOL library which again is publish under a Creative Commons license.

Here you can download the icon in various sizes

What is Probabilistic Computing?

Just finished a new clip with PICOL icons for Navia Systems, a company which was founded in 2007 by four MIT doctoral students. The company’s goal is to help people make more rational, data-driven decisions by designing and building machines that make good judgements in the presence of uncertainty.
The clip exaplains the concept of probabilistic computing, also known as Bayesian inference. Enjoy watching it.
For more information you can visit the website of Navia Systems.

Here you can watch the clip with some additional information on my portfolio.

John Nack on the “History of the Internet”

The blog post isn´t really new, but just found some really nice words on the “History of the Internet” on the blog of John Nack — Thanks :)

Melih Bilgil’s The History of the Internet tells, well, you know, using minimal lines but loads of attention to detail. (The fly-over of Cuba is terrific.) Adobe designer Ethan Eismann writes, “My new personal mission in life is to bring this level or higher of engaging instruction to an Adobe welcome screen near you.”

If you want to download the Pre-Release of all actual PICOL icons (about 550 icons) as pixel or vector files please download the ZIP-Files.
