Codebook has an extensive set of icons bundled with each build of the application that are used to decorate your records (your accounts, your passwords, your secure private information), making them easy to distinguish and ideally to make the app pleasing to the eye and nice to use.
There are currently 150 of them, which isn’t quite enough. They are also a little old, a little fuzzy on the high resolution devices we are all more typically using these days, and some of them perhaps could use a little re-imagining. Finally, we’re sensitive to the criticisms some of our customers have had over the last few years over the aesthetic style of the current set. This is not to put them down, they’ve served us well and helped Codebook to stand out from other password managers.
Whether you’re a critic or not, I think you’ll be excited to hear we’ve just begun a project with Icon Factory to refurbish the entire set in a brand new style and add 50 new icons to the set. Icon Factory did a fantastic job with Codebook’s app icon and we’re really excited that they’ll be doing the artwork for the new and improved set (you might have seen their work around!)
To that end: we’re currently going through old requests and ideas and coming up with new ones which we’ll winnow down to a final set of fifty. We’d like to hear from you as well—is there some missing icon, or a type of account that lacks a metaphor in the current set? Please let us know, reply with any suggestions below.
