Not-So-Big Icons, v2.0

Submitted By Andy Allcorn (bob_the_gorilla)


0.8 users - I recommend opacity set between 30% and 50%.

The suggested contact list styles to match the popular message style "Big Icons" (also shown). It includes both a bold contact bubbles layout, and a subtler group bubbles one.

Designed to be colourful, with clear on-line and off-line colours to attract attention, yet tasteful. Reminiscent of the Spotlight search results windows in Tiger, I think (maybe that's just me) - and the OS X traffic lights appear as the on- and off-line indicators. New message colour is the same as typing colour - when the message is ready, it begins to flash. Maybe not to everyone's taste, but I've been doing it that way for a while now :)

v2.0 now has colours to match all of the default Big Icons styles - blue, green, grey and red.

Includes two different list layouts, and four colour themes (the only difference is the group colour). Please note that I suggest you use these together, as the colours were chosen with translucent bubbles in mind, and they look a bit pants with any other layout :)

Please see my website for more goodies.

I modded it a bit - bender should be on the left, or he gets hidden by my icons! The original (and other colours) is here: and my modified blue one is Sadly, Bender has now been supplanted by U2 but he lives on here.

That is an awesome desktop. *ganks* In fact, the original would conflict with my icons too, so thanks for posting your modded one; that'll work better.

I dig the style too, so I think I'll grab that as well.
