I said I would have a go at designing icons for Mastodon, so here's a mockup with them integrated 🙂https://raw.githubusercontent.com/snwh/mockups/master/mastodon/mastodon_wide.png
@snwh These are great. Especially love the rocket ship and astronaut-type icons.
@mjd exactly, you can see there are some Twitter icon analogues still in there.
@snwh Which makes sense -- Twitter and Facebook have so dominated our conceptions of how social networks work it will be hard to come up with a different vocabulary for actions that make sense to everyone, much like a floppy disk still means "save" in some places.
@mjd Mastodon is already establishing a new vocabulary with Toots and boosts.
@snwh Indeed - this is why your takeoff icon makes sense -- the current recycle icon says retweet but not "boost" to me.
@mjd it's a rocket, which has boosters. ;)
@snwh I also like the use of the actual Mastodon icon for getting started -- asterisk doesn't really mean anything.
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
