The Kidcon™ Icon Collection by Gedeon Maheux

The Kidcon™ Icon Collection is meant as a reminder that kids use and love computers just as much as us "adults". The entire collection was created in just a few days in a blitz of creativity that seemed to come from deep in the kids in us. Brainstorming this set was a blast as it brought memories from our childhood flooding back to the surface. We hope you enjoy Kidcons enough to decorate your computer with the collection even if you're a grown-up!

The enclosed folder contains over 60 custom Kidcon icons for children of all ages. This fun and playful set was drawn by hand utilizing bold lines and striking colors to bring out the kid in everyone. There are Kidcon replacements for the standard OS items like blank folders and the trash can as well as scores of toys and objects that are sure to loosen up any computer. Whether your eight or eighty, we're sure you'll enjoy the Kidcon Icon Collection as long as you're young at heart!

Thanks: This set could not have been created without the creative support of my girlfriend Mindy (of Deskstop fame) and my roomate Talos Tsui. Ideas for all of the icons in this set flowed out of our brains like water, and creating the icons themselves was almost as fast. This set was just plain fun to create and I couldn't have done it without Min & Talos. - Ged
