itsaBox Icon by ~c55inator. It's simply a box. But with so much scope for use! A really clean, functional and colourful icon for your Mac.

itsaBox Icon

Well, itsaBox. It was an experiment, and my first ever fully "Mac Style" icon not based off of anything. I worked on texturing, perspective, materials, and other things, especially scalability. It scales almost perfectly.

That said, it is a box that you can use as an icon for stacks, for a folder, for a pen drive, anything really. It's a box. And it was fun to make. And it has a ribbon on. Only one ribbon, though.

As always, comments and criticism on any aspect of this icon [Except for originality/innovation] is appreciated.

Please fullview it, otherwise the image is fuzzy. :-)

**EDIT** I just got my first DD! Many many thanks to BurgerBunny! I am happy now. ^_^

It is indeed a box... it'd be hard to mistake for anything else, after all. The real question here is: just what is in the box?? More boxes? My cat? Nothing? Now that is an intriguing one...

I'm amazed at how nobody is freaking out about how the file is '666KB' Nice change of pace from the regular idiots I talk to.

Very well done, polished and eye-candy goodness. Love your presentation of it as well with the type on the white background.

Step one... cut a hole in the box... (Though it's going to take a little more work than that! XD)

It looks excellent... I'm going to use it for my pendrive icon! :) Thank you very much!^^

What if the box is a lie too, considering cakes are packed in boxes? D:

Scalable, that means vector :)
c55inator's avatar
Technically, yes. I just meant that it could be scaled down to 16px from 1024px and not grow any less clear; it lost unnecessary rather than necessary detail.

The point is moot because I'm too lazy to make a new preview image.

One of the best icon and idea I've seen.

Thank you! I think it's the best I've made so far, and I intend to make sure that all of my future icons are somewhere around this level of quality.

Thanks for featuring!
