In October, 2013 the Iconfactory released its last macOS desktop icon collection. For more than a decade prior, we had built our brand on crafting, among other things, amazing and fun Mac icons that people could use to customize their folders and hard drives. We eventually stopped creating desktop icon sets as the world turned its attention to the iPhone and away from the Mac but today we’re pleased to report we’re back with an all-new icon set created exclusively for Patreon subscribers!
Inspired by the blockbuster film from Marvel Studios, our new Captain Marvel icon collection contains hard drives, folders and objects that are a great way to re-live some of the most fun moments from the movie. We’ve included objects like the retro “Fonz” lunchbox and Director Fury’s interstellar pager as well as fan-favorites like Goose’s name tag and even a cheeky Blockbuster video rental membership card.
But that’s not all.
Since Captain Marvel takes place in 1995, we thought we’d add an extra bit of retro fun to include System 7 versions of every icon in the collection. :-)
Designed with love using the same 16 color palette that was in wide use on the Mac desktop at the time, these pixel-perfect icons are a nostalgic treat that are sure to bring a smile to the face of any long-time Mac addict. The best part is these 4-bit wonders may look ancient but they still work in modern macOS Mojave. We can’t wait for you to try them out!
Finally, since the reception to our first Captain Marvel wallpaper was so positive, we’ve gone and cooked up a bonus wallpaper that we’re making free for everyone to enjoy. Head on over to our Patreon page to download it for your iPhone, iPad or desktop – even if you’re not a subscriber.
The Captain Marvel icon set is available today to Iconfactory Patreon backers at the $12 Hero level. Be sure to check out our other Patreon tiers to find one that’s right for you – and while you’re there, don’t forget to grab today’s free wallpaper release. We hope you enjoy this journey in the Wayback Machine, but stay tuned, we have lots more great goodies in store in the future!
