10 Nov Clarify those Leopard stacks
Category: Design, Icon Design

In browsing my RSS feed, I found that Susumu Yoshida’s blog had a link that pointed to several ‘drawer’-like icons containing the stack icons behind them in a Leopard dock. With a bit of guessing (I can’t read Japanese ;)) I found the original website, Optica Optima. Here’s the ‘Leopard Stack Drawers’ in action;

There’s but a few things that I really rush to download and use for usefulness, aesthetics and innovation; this one’s one of them. I wish I could write some Japanese so I could comment ‘Domo Arigato!’ to Susumu Yoshida, whose blog made me aware of this pretty cool idea, and the creator of the icons of course!

    Man, that’s perfect! So great I really wish Apple would buy the idea and icons from him and include it in an update. I still hate having to put on an empty folder just to get something to look right that Apple should have done much better themselves.
