    Another item ticked off the to-do list — the new installer icon for iStat Server 2. We're not close to release yet, but we're close to being close. Or something. Hey, it's a big project.

    512×512 version attached.

    @lucas marinm Ha. Fair enough. (This is something I started a long time ago.)

    I personally love it, it kinda resonates with the dropbox logo, but i think it's original enough, and i love the blue cube of 3dish love.

    Dig it. I must say it reminds me a lot of this one though (which is fine seeing it's a freebie, lol).

    The istat icon on the side is sort of too squished, looks oval.

    Add some styrofoam for fun :)

    @Creative Goat Thanks. It's intended to be a custom replacement for the standard OS X installer package icon. The blue is taken from the main app icon, so they're themed together.

    @lucas marinm @Thom @Mani Thanks!

    @Anton Kudin Good point. I'll fix that.

    Looks really nice. What did you make this in? Is it fake 3d in illustrator or did you model and texture it in a 3d application?

    @Callan Rowe It's all just Photoshop, using shape layers almost exclusively. I don't think there's anything particularly tricky about the process used.

  16. This is the final iStat Server icon (the server companion app to iStat for iOS).

    Details — Early images and some of the document's techniques explained.

    Movie — I saved lots of versions of the icon as I was working. This is the result.

    iStat Server 512 PSD.zip — The full, final Photoshop document of the icon.

    iStat Server 512.png — A bigger version for ogling.

    If you're going to scale this icon (or one set up like it), then you'll need the Scale Patterns to 100% script and Mask Feathering scripts, because both techniques are used heavily and scaling without the scripts will look hideous.

    They're both available here, for free, because we're nice.

    The rules: This PSD is provided for education purposes only. If you use it or parts of it in a commercial product, I will hunt you down and feed you live cockroaches. Feel free to replicate the tricks though.
