Project DFD

6th January 2019

I'm starting to think about a new style of icons. I haven't done much on it yet but have started a new section that will show its progress.

Glyfz Office 2019 Style Completed, Sort Of

3rd January 2019

The last of the Glyfz Office 2019 sets are now out and I've added and fixed a few to other sets too. So if you purchased sets before the 1st of January then you might want to download them again. The purchase links to the bundle, site and enterprise license are also now up.

I will be looking at a dark mode variation but I'm not sure how I want to do them yet. I've seen how Microsoft have done them on the Mac and I don't like them at all so will think of a, hopefully, better way. So I don't yet know when they'll be available but they'll be an add on bundle.

Glyfz Office 2016 SVG's Coming Soon

20th January 2018

I've spent time getting a script together, well a few, to help export the Office 2016 icons to SVG. I'll start releasing them shortly.

I'm exporting the 100% versions, 16x16, 24x24 and 32x32, and their 400% counterparts. That gives you the options of either scaling up or scaling down.

Unlike some I've seen they're still pixel perfect, not all blurry. It seems some people don'tknow about pixel alignment.

Illustrator SVG Helper Script

11th May 2017

I've written an Illustrator CC script to automate, as much as I can, the conversion process from ai's to svg's. Can anyone improve it?

If someone can automate the final part then they will receive a license for the Glyfz Office 2016 png's and the vector masters.

Moved back to a static site

13th September 2016

The Wordpress site had too many problems but primarily was far too slow so I've moved back to a static site. The static site is lightning fast in comparison but loses the integrated shopping cart, instead it's back to using the PayPal cart, which works so is fine.

 

Glyfz Office 2016, scale factors progress update

13th September 2016

I've been busy with the not inconsiderable task of redrawing all of the Office 2016 ribbon bar icons to add the Windows 10 scale factors. I'm slowly getting there! I've so far completed 1938 icons which is over 52,000 pngs. I'll be hoping to start releasing completed sets shortly.

 

Glyfz Office 2016, scale factors

25th June 2016

I'm in the process of redrawing the Glyfz Office 2016 ribbon bar icons to add all the Windows 10 scale factors. So for 16x16, 24x24 and 32x32 there will be 100%, 125%, 150%, 175%, 200%, 225%, 250%, 300% and 400% versions.

Here's an example of a 24x24 ribbon bar icon in all its scale factors

Glyfz Office 2016 Ribbon Bar Icons, scale factors

 

As that totals 27 versions per image and simply resizing doesn't work, they're not going to be completed this week or next. However any customer can request particular icons to be made a priority.

The base file names should remain the same but are suffixed with the size and scale factor. For example print.png > print_16x16.scale-100.png

They will be a free upgrade for all Glyfz Office 2016 ribbon bar icon customers and I will look at releasing completed sets early if there's the demand. So let me know.

 

I've moved to 7z archives for releases

18th January 2016

As some customers are non-windows users I’ve decided to move to 7z for ribbon bar icon releases, it saves archiving things up on request. I’ve created 7z’s of all sets and all future orders will point to them however the setup .exe’s will remain available if you need to re-download them.
