We’ve been receiving emails and tweets from friends and clients asking if we had a hand in the creation of the new Windows icons in the latest beta that has been making the rounds. The Iconfactory played an important role in the icon design direction of both Windows XP and Vista, so it’s natural people are curious to find out if we helped create the look and feel of this new icon suite for Microsoft.
We’re here to simply say: Nope, we did not. It’s quite possible that these are just placeholder images. We have a long history of helping the folks in Redmond, have enjoyed working with them and stand ready should they call on us once again.
