Designing icons and other user interface graphics is an interest of mine. I have created two collections of icons, most well known in the form of themes for Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird. They were even used as defaults in the early days of these applications. Since a while back, I don’t develop the themes anymore, but some other people have created their own versions which work on current Firefox versions.
Qute dates back to the early days of Mozilla Firefox, when it was called Phoenix. It was born out of the desire to make the browser look more modern and better integrate with the system.
Even though it has kept the same name, I have refined or even completely remade the theme several times, because I simply wasn’t very good back when I first designed it. As a result, the latest version is quite a bit different from (and better than) the first, although I have tried to keep its original spirit.
Kempelton was originally conceived when I was developing the updated graphics for Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0. I wanted an icon set that blended in with modern operating systems and still had its own character.

Here you can download zip files containing the icons, that may be used for example in web sites and software. They are available in the common PNG format as well as the original SVG vector format, in which you can easily edit or resize them.
