Hi Bernhard,

just a quick comment: I really like the design - but the metaphor for
templates is not convincing and does not work in small sizes. I would
again like to bring in the idea of inverting the icon, which is as
close to the mental model of a template (german: Schablone, Schema) as
my mind brings me atm.

I tried to do a quick draft of what you suggested (it's quite quick and
very dirty if you would have a look at the source), inverting the
interior area of the template icons, but I kept the rip-off metaphor too:

I like it. Think it is good to keep the rip-off metaphor. And the different 
types of icons are well distinguishable. 
For reference the link to Christoph's icons:

We don't have much time left to create the icons, if they should be
included in the final release of LibO 3.3.0, so we should define quite
fast where to go.

I think both proposals have their advantages - the inverted icons look
quite dark, but are easier to differ from the document icons.

Perhaps it is possible to increase brightness / decreas saturation of the 
icons to have them both approximately in the same darkness?

I don't know if they really follow the general visual language of the
other icons...

What do you think?

In general I think the quality of the icons (template being dark or not) is 
good enough. So I will not comment on further mails. Get them out :)


Best regards


(who starts working on the Draw document icon)

If anybody else would try his/her skills on the Master Doc (just put the
symbols of four Writer icons or the full icons together on the main
application icon), this would already help a lot!
