Alternate Adobe Suite Icon Design Contest
author: Kevin M. Keating
In December, I wrote about the new Adobe Creative Suite 3 icons (ick!) and the controversy in the design community surrounding them. Well, today, a reader who presumably found this site through a Google Search commented on that post with information about a contest sponsored by his/her (Pariah is the name) site Quark VS InDesign. They are looking for designers to submit at least three icons for consideration, though more is great, and two must be for Photoshop and Illustrator, respectively. The prize list is pretty great (I marvel at the shipping costs alone for all those books!) and all submitted icons will be made available for download to replace the ugly paint chips if you so desire. Deadline is 23 April 2007. Read more about it here.
