Brooklyn-based designer Nina Azzarello has created a series of handmade, paper cut-out icons for computers. Made entirely by hand, Azzarello sketches, colors, paints, cuts, and finally scans each desktop icon into a digital image. According to her, this project is currently still on-going and she plans to make an icon for each desktop application. (via Design Taxi)

You can find the icons at www.behance.net/fairyfingers. The icons are also available at www.etsy.com/shop/NinainDesign.


From Hat-Trick we get the tiny Olympic Non-Events book which sees Otl Aicher-style icons created to illustrate various well known metaphorical phrases. Nice. (via Creative Review)




New York-based graphic designer and illustrator David Iglesias, of Tender Creative in Manhattan, redesigned the images on Burger King’s sandwiches, sides and ingredients as part of their global packaging reinvention. He also redesigned their existing icon system. I do like this redesign with sharp and welldetailed icons and illustrations. Nice.
