Design : Killer App Icons

Tags: , ,

I have created a Pinterest pinboard of Killer iPhone App Icons. A killer icon is a pre requisite to get noticed in the very crowded app store. This is a collection of icons that really stand out for me, and I hope that by curating a colelction of them I can start to see some trends in what really makes the killer icon.

Check out my Pinterest Killer App Icons board!

Design : World Flag Icons

Tags: , ,

World Mini Flags. These icons were created for designers who wish to add a little more interest to international websites. Each flag is 30×18 pixels (border added with style sheets). They represent all current countries and flags. All flags have been hand finished to preserve detail.

The flags are named with a capitalized two letter prefix eg AU.gif , this corresponds to the ISO3166 naming convention for naming countries. In addition territories are included as well, some of these may share the same flag as the colonising country (theres a lot of french flags!)

Also included is a comma delimited text file countries.csv which includes the two letter code, and the country name, this can be imported into a database, or used with some clever search and replacing to build drop down lists, tables, etc.
