Ive been working on some unified icons for the instance so the icons feel like they belong together

Let me know if you like them or if there’s some adjustments I should make

Some examples from ones I’ve done

The majority of them are generated from https://game-icons.net/ with the settings of foreground being shrunk twice and position being x:2 y:2. Foreground color is diagonal from 2EE5D2 to A01FC5. And has a shadow with color 423025 and blur set to 15. The background color is just black

    I think we could also help some mods to find project artwork or logos that are textless, increasing their relative size for easier visual recognition. E.g.


    • Docker’s container whale
    • Android’s iconic green robot head
    • Java’s steaming cup of joe

    Of course some icons are unavoidably text, like php, R, C/C++, etc.
    But their also common enough to ID on sight given additional color cues.

      Java coffee? No way, we should use Duke!

      I’m actually fine either way, I just have a soft spot for weird mascots, like the 1996 Olympics mascot Izzy.
