The Breakroom


February 23, 2009

Greensboro, North Carolina. Saturday, February 21, 2009. 7:15am. 24 degrees Fahrenheit. Gedeon, Talos, Anthony, Louie and myself arrive at Friendly Center to join a small but fanatical group, including Ian Meyer who had camped out all night, in front of a polished aluminum and glass monolith. Just under three hours later the new employees joined […]

Every one of the Iconfactory’s workers have had Twitter accounts almost since day one. In recent months we created product-specific accounts for both Twitterrific and Frenzic but never one to cover the entire company. Until now. We’re pleased to announce the Iconfactory now has a Twitter account that you can follow to get the latest […]

Full Steam Ahead!

January 12, 2009

Our Christmas trees have been put away, we watched the ball drop, and have safely returned from an exciting trip to Macworld 2009. Although we had a wonderful break, we’re more than ready to get back at it. Our trip to Macworld allowed us to showcase both Twitterrific and Frenzic to the scores of people […]

Year In Review for 2008

December 22, 2008

How time flies when you’re pushing pixels! It seems like only yesterday we were looking back on 2007, and now it’s a year later and once again it’s time to reflect on our accomplishments. The year that was 2008 featured an iconic tribute to a movie legend, important updates to Twitterrific and xScope, and saw […]

We sincerely hope this year’s Iconfactory Halloween festivities contained a sufficient helping of creepy to satisfy everyone. Despite the shrieking, moaning and howling around the factory floor the workers were able to craft four spooky icon sets to help you express the spirit of the season. Somehow we were also able to sneak in a […]

We’re Still Kickin’

September 3, 2008

Since it’s been over a month since our last update we wanted take a moment to let you know we’re still here and pushing pixels as always. Unfortunately those pixels have been for a major client instead of our usual freeware releases. This, combined with Craig’s voyage into Twitterrific revision land has meant there hasn’t […]

Iconfactory In the Media

July 31, 2008

If you’ve ever wondered just what we do here at the Iconfactory, then we’ve got a treat for you. The Greensboro gang was recently featured by our local Fox affiliate, WGHP for their “Made in North Carolina” series. The goal of the news series is to highlight companies that you may not realize are in […]

Kneel Before Zog!

July 22, 2008

In 2004 David Lanham released his first set of Somatic Icons. Within these icons, there was an unassuming purple monster named Zog. Slowly, this character has crept out of the icons and into larger desktops and prints on David’s personal site. Now we’re pleased to announce that Zog will be taking shape as a collectible […]

A Day In the Life

May 23, 2008

The folks over at MyMac Magazine have been around even longer than the Iconfactory, so when their founder, Tim Robertson, invited our own Ged Maheux for an interview, we were only too happy to oblige. Ged appears this week in episode #185 and gives the skinny on everything from our month long Indy tribute, how […]

We Remember Stan Flack

April 14, 2008

I remember MacCentral always being a top bookmark in my early days as a serious Machead. Stan was a pioneer in the Mac journalism field and was a great friend to the Iconfactory both at the helm of the original MacCentral and in his all too short time as showrunner at MacMinute. He will be […]
