We are pleased to announce a new JIDE Icon Set for Windows Vista – another beautiful stock icon set for your Java/Swing applications that follows the Windows Vista icon design guideline.

Vista Icon Set

We released our first stock icon sets a while ago and now here comes the second icon set that follows the Vista icon design guidelines. The Vista style is more realistic than illustrative, but not quite photorealistic. Icons have a maximum size of 256x256 pixels, making them suitable for high-dpi (dots per inch) displays. These high-resolution icons allow for high visual quality in list views with large icons. We tried to use the same design idea as the existing Vista's icon so that your application looks consistent with any native Vista applications. You can preview both icon sets here.

This Vista icon set is built by our graphic designers with the cooperation from our developers of JIDE component products. By combining both the artistic talent and the logical thinking talent together, our icon set is designed with developer in mind which makes it extremely easy to use in any software applications, especially for Java applications which all our existing JIDE customers and users are building. It even comes with a jar file that you can put into your class path and start to use those beautiful icons right away using IconSetManager class from the open source JIDE Common Layer.

The price for this Vista icon set is at a very affordable $249.99 for the Java version which is less than $2 per icon even though some icons took as high as six designer hours. Please also keep in mind that we provide custom icon design services to meet your speical need, no matter what icon styles you are looking for (Vista, XP, Mac, Linux etc). If you dream to have a consistent user interface with a set of unique icons across all applications in your company, we are right here to help you.
