Paper Icons by hewittsamuel Paper Icons by hewittsamuel

Paper is a modern freedesktop icon theme whose design is based around the use of bold colours and simple geometric shapes to compose icons. While it does take some inspiration from the icons in Google's Material Design, some aspects have been adjusted to better suit a desktop environment.

Awesome icons man! What should I do if I just want the icons for my Windows desktop? Is there a separate link to download them?

I have created an icon for the popular game The Battle for Wesnoth.

So far so good. Awesome work dude, well done!! 

Waiting for a new update with more icons: steam and skype are missing.

Keep it simple.

Icons like that are low-priority. The current goal is to complete the core icon theme before adding more third-party icons.

Not yet, as of commenting the this icon theme is still in *Alpha*, so everyone will have to be patient.

Being using this icon theme for a while now.
So far one of my favorite.
It's just great to see a non-monoschaped theme again.

Yeah, uniformly-shaped icons are dull (says the designer of Moka).

Hope i didn't offend you. What i was trying to say is that
nowadays 98% of icon themes out there are monoshaped.
Doesn't mean they're badly designed or such.
But after a while i've got tired to see another monoshaped
theme coming to light, that's all.
Also, IMHO, it's against any sane HIG use the same shape:
icons should be recognizable also by their distinctive shape,
not just the overlay one, or the bg color.

Anyway, in case i did offend you i'm sorry.
I actually admire your work :)

Are you gonna create any symbolic icons for this theme, or are you just gonna reuse the icons from faba?

Symbolic icons have already been made.
