Windows 7: A call to artists....

A call to artists....

jopeek - CodePlex is the developer of the wonderful app that I am instantly in love with and cannot live without, Browser Chooser - Home

In Browser Chooser - Discussions - Browser Chooser Icon he is asking for anyone who is willing to design an icon for BC - so I thought I'd recommend the wonderful folks here to give it a shot. He asked for me to make a post here and to link him to it, so here is the post, and there is the link.

Do us proud, folks!

I wouldnt mind creating a few. I jsut dont know what the parameters are in terms of design. Or is it a 'lets see what we come up with'. In that case I'll just start popping some out and go from there.

Something that relates I guess. The tool acts as your default browser, opens when you click on a link or url shortcut and presents you with a list of configurable browsers.

I do like the icon that a similar app for the mac uses at Choosy - A smarter default browser for Mac OS X

The icon should match the general style of Windows 7 icons, ie. glossy and not too square, I suppose. Other than that, you're the creative ones

That's a pretty nice icon they have for that app, I may have a go at doing something similar to that.

Grim's icon is pretty cool. Probably wouldn't scale well to a smaller size though.

Kukag, I like that. I could use that either on the website or on the about screen inside the app for example, if you'll let me.
