I was rethinking some old icons.

Jesus, dat leather pad. Seems a little excessive, lol
@Jake Moore excessive, yes. :P
I love the richness! I'm sad to see it leaving with the introduction of iOS 7 :/
Superbly done Wil. Glad to see you haven't given up on dimension.
One thing I'm wondering about is your new logo. I definitely enjoy it, but in terms of the logic of it I wonder if it might be more legible as a "w" and "n" if it were flipped around instead of "m" and "u": http://d.pr/i/xSL6
@Eli Schiff Give up on dimension? There's a clarity in this type of design that's not seen in many other places. iOS icons demand a type of uniformity per their identical context — desktop icons don't.
One's meant to follow the motion of the logo rather than the wrote shapes — it's far more clear at larger sizes. It's better this way. ^^
@Eli Schiff Clarifying on the logo — divide it into five columns. The first shape crosses columns 1-3 (color 1). Second shape (color 2) crosses 2-4, and shape 3 (color 1) crosses 3-5. Shape 1 is the first leg of the W. Shape 2 is the next two legs. Shape 3 is the overlapping/stacked N.
@Matt Zanchelli Funny man :P
Still unsure about it. Trying to follow your directions, but the coloring is not making sense to me. The first direction: "The first shape crosses columns 1-3 (color1)" Is stumping me. If you happen to have a color version that'd be very helpful!
Here's where I got stumped: http://d.pr/i/d3e2
While I do now get where the "n" is, I personally think the "n" made from negative space is more effective than the hanging "n" that is in place currently. The benefit of the negative space "n" is that it allows the "w" to have three clear stems.
For me, less gloss on the top, and satin on the leather, kinda ruins it for me, the pencil is just wonderful. Comparing to the older icon, I'd say proper good job!
Damn make a new icon set ! I need this and I like them <3
That leather! I love it.
