Basic set update 2.2

Basic set update 2.2

July 22, 2019By Jan KovaříkUpdates

A thousand icons... My first thought was: phew, it's done! But almost immediately I realized: wait, what's "done" exactly, what does it really mean? It actually means it's a nice rounded number and that’s about it. The best thing I can actually do would be just to keep calm and carry on, with no fanfare, no ceremony or silly discount, to celebrate this occasion.

On sales and discounts

July 21, 2019By Jan KovaříkThoughts

From time to time, I get an email from a customer asking for a discount. I always try politely explain, why I don't do any sales, but it is difficult to keep my answer brief without sounding harsh. That's why I've decided to wrote this article, so I can refer to it whenever I got a similar request (feel free to use it too).

Logo update

Logo update

April 22, 2019By Jan KovaříkUpdates

Last year's version 2.0 was the most important milestone in the entire GLYPHICONS existence and updated logo was part of it. Yet, because of all the fuss around this version and the lack of time and my attention caused it didn't get as much attention as it deserved. Now, when everything settled down, it's been a great time to re-evaluate its appearance in the context of new icons and the entire website.

The first version of SVG tool

March 29, 2019By Jan KovaříkUpdates, How to

Today, I’m really happy that I can announce the first version of this new online SVG tool! This simple web tool runs in almost any common desktop browser and it lets you upload multiple individual SVG icons, edit some of their basic attributes (without changing anything else in their code) and download all icons back to your computer in one ZIP file.
