Metro Style Icons - 1st Set by Blaze-Sama Metro Style Icons - 1st Set by Blaze-Sama
It all started some days ago while testing the Office 2013 preview for some reason I fell in love with the yellow metro folder I saw in that release, however after trying to extract that icon for days with no avail I decided to recreate It from scratch in Adobe Illustrator and convert it to icon.

I made two versions, the yellow folder like the original one and a blue version to match a custom windows theme I had, however in the design process I got inspired with more ideas to transform actual windows Icons in something that could match the folders I made so there it is... This is the first set, I'm planing on design and release more icons when I'm done with them so you can expect more.

I'm accepting suggestions as on what icons should I try to make next so feel free to leave comments.

Can you port and tranform old icons from "progman.exe", "winfile.exe", "pifmgr.dll", "moricons.dll"?

I'm really starting to get tired of the inconsistency with the Metro theme and Windows 8's Aero-style (Windows 7) icons.

Sure I will do when I can, 256px version, I even had planned to release more icons but I had some Issues with my main computer which is preventing me from doing it right now... I hope I can get it fixed soon. =)

And how to install them on windows 7?

You need third party software to change icons... I use Stardock Iconpackager which I recommend It allows you to change almost every icon in Windows 7 for ones of your choice but if you want a free alternative you could try IconTweaker although it doesn't have that many options as Iconpackager (Like for example change Control Panel item icons)...

Next set is already on the go.

Including icons for folder types, multimedia files (Video, Audio), some misc icons such as Desktop, and Registry file extensions and maybe more.

Add the "folder within a folder" icon. And you should adjust the folder icons 3-4 pixels to the left. Thanks! Best work so far!

Already working on them, next Metro Icon set will have icons for Folder and Multimedia file types, I will also try to make Live Folder versions for those who want a total folder overhaul. there are also more icons coming for that release such as the Desktop icon, Reg File extension and perhaps more if i have time to make more. =) thanks for your feedback.
