Show OS X you hate it with “Teh Icons”

Adobe’s icon set for its CS3 suite is arguably the worst ever. (Well, really, there is no argument, but some people apparently blindly defend Adobe the way most of us blindly defend Apple). If you happen to be one of those Adobe lovers that thinks the simplicity of their faux periodic table of elements icons set (which in reality wasn’t meant to mimic the periodic table) is somehow conducive to a productive workflow, then take a look at “Teh Icons“. This icon set has an Adobe-esque blocky icon for virtually every application available, from Address Book on down, and the source files are included is you find an app is missing (or want to change the font when Slimbach comes out). At the very least, this confusing icon set will help keep other people from easily screwing with your computer…

Thanks to faithful Macesntein reader TheWarpedOne (who apparently remembers my hatred of the CS3 icons) for the link.

    Aaa- … aaaa-AAAaarrrrgh!!! This is the death of usability. Unless you are not an autistic brain this is the worst. To remember which auf this crap is the app you look for in your Dock…???

    Hope this never come into apple-designers minds… : (

    Thanks to designers like Susan Kare or Cesar Carrera we have useful and understandable icons.

    I like the Adobe icons, but not because of blind faith towards Adobe.

    The Adobe icons really work in the Dock because all of the other icons around them are much more complex and take longer (albeit by probably less than a second or two) to figure out what they are. When looking for InDesign, I just glance and find that purple block quite easily.

    And I, for one, welcome our new icon overlords.
