TextAdium: 'Reflections SRI' Integration Set

Submitted By Brandon Phatt138 (Phatt138)

Description

Always on search for the ultimate in desktop minimalism, I was glad to discover styrizo's 'Reflections SRI' icon set via deviantART. As can be seen in the screenshot, the set contains (among other more iconic folder and application symbols) elegant text-based icons for many major programs and system apps. Trying to maintain a visual flow between subtle wallpapers and eye-catching icons was always problematic for me, and this set solved all my woes in one fell swoop. Why, there was even an Adium icon!

...one Adium icon, that is. Simply an .app icon, with no accompanying set for various states. Expanding on Viana's brilliantly minimalist ideal, I decided to make a fully-featured Adium iconset!

Since people who use Adium regularly are online by default, I wanted a base state that wouldn't contrast with the other Reflections icons, but would still make your status easily understandable.

Hence, the Connected/Available state is black, while the default/offline state is a translucent grey - one that is notable and reminds you that you're not connected but doesn't detract from the visual continuity. The connecting state is animated and fades between this light grey and the full black, pulsing subtly.

The Away state is a nice, matching red, and on Alert status the icon animates - fading between the full black and red states - as well as flashing the user's name a la normal functionality.

Enjoy, and let me know if you have any further suggestions!

Viva la minimaliste!

Awesome! I love Edson's icon set, and I'm really glad you expanded on the Adium icon. Viva la minimaliste!

Thanks Dylan, I'm glad you like it! I recognize that it's kind of a niche set, so I'm glad it'll come in handy for you! :)

Nice icons. I like the black news badge. (Sorry, that was totally unrelated to the matter at hand).

after finding this at random, i was hooked to the way those icons looked, and went and downloaded the full set and changed my comp's appearance to a more minimalist one. it looks awesome now!

It has the same style of font, but the text is located towards the bottom and not the center. So it looks a little off when paired with the rest of the text icons.
