Hi Christoph, Bernard, all,

I know the time constraint plays an important role in this, and for what its worth, I think you've come up with a really professional icon Design in a short amount of time. I'm just sorry my contributions lately have been all talk and no graphics. Talk is cheap.

Here is the refined version:


I think the lighter interior is an improvement and I _would_ recommend switching the icons so that the current template icons serve as document icons. It is hard to explain in just words, so please refer to this image I hacked together to help explain;

The original template icon (t1) still seems best to me because it looks like a Paper stack, backed against a blue folder lining. Of the new lighter versions, while they are an improvement, t2 has no light-grey gradient on the white inner surface and d2 uses a light-blue inner border.
My eyes interpret this as;
- t2 loses the consistent look because it doesn't share the "universal top-lighting" that shades its border and page contents (the mock-paragraph-lines) - d2 loses the impression of a pile of stacked pages because the inner border is blue rather than grey. Reducing the effect of depth.

I think t1 is perfect the way it was originally. Just drop the binder and reinstate the grey left-inner-border (t1B) and it's a perfect document icon. I understand that time has run out. This is not a change-request, just feedback.

But that is just my opinion. I pay too much attention to these details =)
I LOVE the template (binder) icon. Great stuff Christoph!
Oh, thanks a lot ... but really, I'm just jumping in because we miss a
"pro" here :-)

In my opinion, anyone capable of creating this; ...
... is someone I'd readily consider a "Pro".

And Bernhard, I think your proposal to complete the icons in their current form is most reasonable. There will be a chance to address these small issues down the track, like you mentioned, and I think Lib/O deserves non-OOo icons! =)
+1 to your "icon finalisation agenda"
