Creating an icon in Fireworks

Vane Kosturanov and Vanco Stojkov pack a one-two punch as DryIcons: one is a developer, the other a designer (I’m sure their skills overlap). Together they wrote an amazing tutorial that shows you how to create a web icon — one of the basic ingredients of any good website.

Everyone I know who touched this article before posting on the Adobe Developer Connection told me how much fun it was to create the icon. Sarthak Singhal, a QE on the Fireworks engineering team, wrote, “I followed the article step by step and could not believe myself creating a beautiful folder icon. It is simply amazing.” Tommi West, the copyeditor, said, “I loved this article sooo much! I followed along with all of the steps, and I’m very pleased with the folder icon I made.”

Gee, who knows what you’ll think? Me, I’m pretty excited that I got to work with two excellent technical writers from Macedonia. There’s a first time for everything.
