    First of the icons I was commisioned to do for Intel Inc. for their inhouse web application. This is a metaphor for "Manage Server" in the application.

    About 2 years ago, in 2010 I was in my last minute furnishes before launching Iconsutra and I got a surprise mail. It was from Intel and they wanted me to work on some icons and the user interfaces of their upcoming product. I was thrilled and I sent out a message saying that I was interested. I got up the next day after the Iconsutra's launch checking my mailbox and there was no reply. I waited a week there was no reply. So I was disappointed and felt like I missed a great opportunity. May be the quote was a bit high ? May be they weren't impressed by my work ? You know the anxiety of someone who hits gold and loses it in the next second. That. The wait continued for a couple of weeks but in vain...

    Pretty neat :)

    But I find the handle a bit weird. I guess the perspective? The side is too thick? Dunno.

  14. Second icon from the Intel Set. This is a metaphor for "Database Restoration". And this remains my favourite icon of the bunch ;)

    Seeing that I was not getting a reply from the them, I started taking up other client works. I worked for some startups as well as indie developers. But like it says in the opening scene of Swingers, the reply came back one day, but it was when I had completely moved on. Though snowed under other work, I was able to finish them off in time and take up this job. I started off by doing the 4 icons that I'm showcasing now. But little did I know that the work was to span more than a year. I worked from 2010 till 2011. I got first hand experience in how working at a corporate with a chain of departments would be like and insights into the policies and procedures that influence your work by collaborating closely with the team on building icons like these and their web interface. I will be sharing what I learned in the next shot.
