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).

Making editable icons for Powerpoint

PowerPoint and OpenOffice support eps files, but changing the color of the icons isn´t possible with eps files. If you export your icon as *.emf (Enhanced Metafile) you are able to change the colors with PowerPoint, but you lose all your curves, if you look closely on your icon.

It took me some trials to convert the icons made with Illustrator to make them editable with PowerPoint. It takes a few steps, but it works. Now it´s possible to change the color of the icons with PowerPoint and OpenOffice.
