Basic set update 2.4 and Halflings set update 2.2
February 01, 2021By Jan KovaříkUpdates
These updates are both (Basic set and Halflings set as well) rather "technical", as most of the new icons were made upon on requests I received during the last year. Some of them should be already part of the previous update, but I wasn't able to finalize them in time. So, in the dry language of numbers, with 30 new icons it's 1060+ icons for Basic set and 30 new icons in Halflings set make a nice equal number of 300+ icons.
Custom icons process
January 31, 2021By Jan KovaříkHow to
Over the years, I had the privilege to create custom icons for various companies, organizations and individuals. I learned very quickly, that each client has slightly different requirements, as each project is unique and has its own specifics. Nevertheless, there is a certain pattern for custom icon design process, routine even, made of the steps that repeat in each project.

Last year, the global pandemic changed our day-to-day lives in ways and degree nobody expected. Lockdowns, quarantines and even restrictions of personal gatherings, this affected more or less all of us.

The way people consume content on the web has shifted during the last decade. As YouTube is now the second largest search engine (crazy right?), video is something you can't ignore.
More than ten years together
December 19, 2020By Jan KovaříkThoughts
November 11th, 2020 marked the tenth anniversary of GLYPHICONS icons. More than a decade, since I draw the first icon set. It still kind of blows my mind, every time I think about it. Ten years may not seem like a particularly long time, but when you put it in a perspective of today‘s average lifespan of tech startups, it's a quite long time.
The first version of the Weather set
It almost seems like the demand for apps showing various weather conditions is never ending and it kind of makes sense, as depending on the weather, we often plan our whole day ahead. Almost everybody have some kind of weather app installed on their phone or desktop computer. So naturally, I've been getting a lot of requests for weather icons during the last few years and now I finally had some time to create them.
Basic set update 2.3
February 18, 2020By Jan KovaříkUpdates
1030+ icons in total make the Basic set the biggest GLYPHICONS icon pack ever. I know it's obvious and that the Basic set has always been the biggest. It may sound a bit like when new iPhones are introduced – with a better display, thinner body and better battery, it's the best iPhone ever made – of course it is! Nobody would buy a new, but slightly worse iPhone :). But this is not an iPhone, this is different.
The first version of the Mind set

I remember that not so long ago the meaning of terms such as meditation or mindfulness was known only to a minority, at least in the western world. Today, these words have penetrated almost all mainstream media and most of us have at least a vague idea about their meaning. I think it's great that more and more people try to live in a present moment and improve their mental health. Also one of the side effects is that those people become kinder, more relaxed and compassioned.
