The day has come, and Icon Resource, the biggest project I’ve spearheaded since the start of my own company has gone live. You can now go to the Icon Resource website to watch a sample video, read more about the contents, or acquire your access to the polished Icon Resource member area.
Icon Resource contains 15 high-definition videos, separated into a theory and a technique section, explaining you everything you need to know to make your own icons with Photoshop. No prior knowledge of Photoshop is required.
If you purchase Icon Resource, you are granted access to a special member area featuring all videos in HD and iPhone formats, with the project files and documentation. The experience has been tuned to be as seamless as possible, as Icon Resource is now running on a separated, dedicated server, with an extra available high-bandwidth server for the large video files.

I want to thank everyone who’s helped out in this great endeavor; making such a beautiful and browser-friendly website was a unique experience, and working with the talented people who helped me turn a design into a great website was great fun. Of course, working on the videos provided to be a much larger task! I’ve spent about 6 weeks of fine-tuning my speech, minimizing my accent, and recording screencasts and audio.
Icon Resource wouldn’t be as beautiful and made with love if it weren’t for ScreenFlow, the best screen recording utility made since the dawn of man. Simon Clarke, one of the ScreenFlow developers, also helped me out with a minor issue I had during the composing of several recordings.
For now, sound off your thoughts and enjoy this great new jump into instructional videos!
Feel free to digg it if you want to see more of these kind of videos!
