try to make the icons a bit less visually aggressive - you can do that with anti-aliasing, reducing contrast and saturation, and removing or toning down elements that are secondary in importance.

I guess my point is; in blender we have text to identify the icon in most places, thus the illustrative aspect is less important than the consistent symbolism, if, in the future, blender moves to icon only menus, the consistent style is what makes for fast identification.

something like this with a small "X" for delete, and a water drop for dissolve would sufficiently convey the task, while remaining simpler and more symbolic.I'm not a icon designer , so this is just my two cents, but hope this helps!

@Paweł Łyczkowski (plyczkowski) @Jonathan Williamson (carter2422) Can we make a proposal about this loading thingy? IMO it will help us to resolve the "Loading Custom Icons" problem as well, because before you compile or even better, before you run blender, you can change the location of a specific file in JSON. Further more: we will have a list of all icons with their names and locations as a result!

Thank you @Jonathan Williamson (carter2422)! Next time I update this list (hopefully tomorrow) I will split it into sections just as you mentioned.

Peter Varo (petervaro) added a comment to T38666: ObjectMode -> Tools and Origin-menu.

@Paweł Łyczkowski (plyczkowski) Fair enough. My previous icon set I designed for my own 3D CAD software at my last startup company were 13px by 13px vector glyph icons without any color (the soft gray gradient was added programatically to each of them on startup) -- so I know what you are talking about. However, in blender we can find icons using the same or even more colors than the first half of my set:

@Paweł Łyczkowski (plyczkowski) As a matter of fact, creating these icons is a super learning experience for me too: reading the wiki, testing it in blender, try to catch the smallest/minimal possible example, etc. I also learned how the Limited Dissolve works.

These icons are also raster sketches. These are using blue colors like the Pivot Point selector icons.

@Matjaž Lamut (lamoot) I had the same problem, so I created this list myself just as I mentioned to @Paweł Łyczkowski (plyczkowski)

@Paweł Łyczkowski (plyczkowski) I couldn't open your SVG file from google drive in Illustrator -- it threw me at least 5 errors. Anyway, I couldn't find which icons are you working on right now (except the Move, Rotate, Scale, Extrude, Duplicate, Pan, Rotate, Zoom -- are these ready yet?).
