Icon design reccomendations?

Hi All,

We're going to need to have some icons designed for use within our next project. Does anyone have an artist/company that they would recommend?

Thanks,

Look at this site http://www.foood.net/ his icons look pretty good.

But you could also go to the windowsblinds, kdethemes or general opensource theme sites and contact the authors of icon sets that you like,

They have some good icon families, plus they do custom work.  They did the new icons for TopStyle, FeedDemon, and Nero. They also do splash screens.

I had some great stuff done by http://www.glyfz.com. Marc is a great guy and does great work. He did most of the images for Painless Schedule, and even cleaned up some of the button images that weren't his.

I posted this message to a more recent topic, but thought I would pass it along to this thread also.

Yahir Vite has done several icons for me, and I have been more than satisfied.  He specializes in XP styled icons, so your graphics will generally have a consistent look with 2k and XP.

He is very reasonably priced (especially relative to artists in the US who may charge $50-$100 per custom icon) and will negotitiate on most projects.

You can see examples of his work here :

Hi All,

Thanks for the recommendations. We looked at all of them and what they have to offer. The glyFX site is down/excruciating slow right now, but a google on them pulled up an ad for http://www.iconexperience.com, and their collections appear to be exactly what we're looking for.

If others are too expensive, try www.windows-icons.com - They have also a lot of information about icon design and formats.
