Motivation Behind the Design

As usual, here are some insights from the designers themselves:

“When asked to design a set of icons for Smashing Magazine, DryIcons’ designers decided to create a practical, user-friendly icon set, one that could have a large range of uses, and look great at the same time. Our main motivation for this icon set was to give the readers something they could really use.

The “Practika” icon set is stylish and elegant and can find its use in all websites, blogs, applications. The set contains 11 high quality web icons in 32-bit transparency in PNG file format. They come in 64x64px, 128x128px and 256x256px size.”

Thank you, guys!

    Cute bird icon! It is VERY ironic, though, that you release a good, free bird like this, while your own website’s link to Twitter makes use of the copyrighted Iconfactory icon for Twitterific! Twitter and Twitterific are NOT the same product, and that whispering bluebird is a copyrighted image representing a piece of commercial software.

    Hi!

    I just wanted to say thank you for the icons, especially the Twitter bird. I wanted to make my own Twitter button, so I used GIMP to make one with your bird. I had a lot of fun doing it and I think I’ll get more Twitter followers with it.

    I didn’t want to put the link to my page with my edited version of your bird (don’t wanna look spammy), but my name is the same as my site.

    Thanks again!
