The Breakroom

We came across a nice posting from a fellow iconist today that we thought we would share with our visitors. Seems as though Jamie and others are going through Pixelpalooza withdrawal and long for the heady days of pixelated madness that each winter brought here at the factory. Starting in 1997, The Iconfactory sponsored a […]

And even though our offices are closed until January 3rd, we will still be responding to technical support and stock icons requests via email. We’ll do our best to respond to your needs in a […]

You may recall that updates to The Iconfactory were temporarily frozen last month due to some server maintenance we were doing. Well, for all those geeks out there, we’re proud to announce just what was going on… we moved our website, email and database servers from hosting at Datareturn in Houston TX, to the loving […]

Iconfactory Updates On Hiatus

November 12, 2004

Due to some extensive internal house keeping we’ll be doing, site updates for The Iconfactory are being suspended from now until December. This means there won’t be new icon releases, news item updates or additions / edits to the DeskBase until we return. Although the website won’t be updated, you can still purchase our software, […]

End of Week Grab Bag

June 18, 2004

As we head into the weekend here at the factory, we wanted to post a quick note to let everyone know to keep your eyes out for several new factory animations that will be popping up in the weeks ahead. The pixel gnomes have been working overtime to send these down the assembly line and […]

History in the Making

June 10, 2004

If you pop over to the Warehouse, you’ll see an interesting statistic on display – 199 icon sets in inventory. Back in June of 2000, The Iconfactory released its 100th icon set and now, four years later we’ve reached another milestone. Another 100 sets of free icons have been released, and to celebrate we’re working […]

A Long Overdue Apology

May 11, 2004

That is to say that the predominant color of the pages of the site was black with white type. We received quite a few emails from people saying things like “Your site […]
