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 it seemed appropriate for "boost" and it went from there.
@snwh It makes perfect sense. It also feels less reliant on Twitter design language.
@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 it's a rocket, which has boosters. ;)
