To everyone here at the Iconfactory, the World of Copland collections
are like old friends. Every time we start a new volume, there is a
certain creative spark that goes around the factory floor. We end
up brainstorming really neat ideas, and get excited about cranking
out more icons at that familiar 3D angle. This time around was no
The enclosed folder contains 45 icons based on the now infamous and
defunct Mac OS code named Copland. Probably the most memorable thing
about Copland was the distinctive 3D look of the interface's icons.
World of Copland:4 picks up right where the past three sets have left
off. Included in this volume are Copland versions of some of your
favorite foods like Cheeseburgers, Hot dogs and Submarine sandwiches.
Techies will appreciate the wide selection of all new computer and
hi-tech gadgets like Sony Cam corders, Cell Phones, Printers, and
all new Quick-cam, modems and digital cameras. Lastly, hook up your
boring old removable media with some super-cool translucent Imation
Diskette icons, complete with colored shadows! All these and more
in the Iconfactory's latest round of World of Copland: Volume 4. Enjoy!
Work Notes: These
icons were hand-assembled pixel by pixel in Adobe Photoshop.
Thanks: A special
thanks goes out to Arno Gourdol at Apple who has been instrumental
in our successful transition to creating icons for Mac OS 8.5. Without
his help and guidance, the World of Copland Volume 4 collection would
be limited to the same old 256 colors we're all used to.
