If you’ve ever wondered what goes through the brains of icon designers as they work their mojo, you are in luck. 37signals invited Iconfactory Principals Corey Marion and Dave Brasgalla to an informal Fireside Chat to discuss the state of icons and icon design. They met up online with noted icon artists Brian Brasher and Josh Williams of Firewheel Design as well as Jon Hicks of Hicks Design and Michael Schmidt of Cuban Council for a fun and informative rap.

This first in a three part series, delves into the designer’s favorite creations, thoughts about the new Adobe CS3 icon suite and more. Its a easy read that offers a glimpse into just what we do around here from day to day. If you’re a fan of pixels, design or just plain icons, you’ll enjoy it. Check it out.
