Day by day, the wordpress engineers have been adding more features and functionality to WordPress 2.7, and as they do, their excitement shows as they have been slowly leaking previews and imagery of the new administrative interface. They have just released another post looking for icon designers to help out with icons for the newest release of the 2.7 interface.
With the release date for WordPress 2.7 set for November 10, they’re going to need to find someone who can crank out some icons very quickly.
We’ll need icons for each of the main navigation sections, plus a matching pair of list/excerpt view icons for the table screens like Edit Posts. That’s a total of 13, and for the navigation icons we’ll also need a larger size for use in the screen headers. Some of the sections have natural iconography, while others may be more challenging. The sections are: Dashboard, Posts, Media, Links, Pages, Comments, Appearance, Settings, Users, Plugins, Tools.
Icons should be subtle, with a classic/designed look, nothing cartoonish. Thin lines. Maybe a little old-fashioned looking. They’ll be grayscale by default, possibly with a color version for active menu items.
Fast, fast, fast. 2.7 is due to release on November 10. That means icons need to be ready within two weeks, give or take.
Is there anything in particular that you’d like to see in the new 2.7 interface?
