Ikon Angst

Time at which I deployed the new, custom designed category icons for Tea Leaves yesterday: 7:38 pm.

Time at which the first reader complained that I took away their favorite icon: 7:49 pm.

I love the little fruit-lover as much as the rest of you, but he’s not mine. I always felt a little guilty about my icons; they’re grabbed from all sorts of random places. I wanted something that would give the site a little more consistent feel. I commissioned Elise to design some replacements, and I’m really happy with the results.

However, for nostalgia’s sake, I have left the FF2000 as the miniature icon that should show up in bookmark lists, browser tabs, and the like.
