Fancy Notes Icons

Have you seen the Notes icon for the Mac? It's really nice. Takes me back to my days as school marbles champ. Well, I can reveal that, while Lotus were planning all three clients for the Mac OS, they drafted these beauties. Aren't they nice:

Mac Icons

Okay, okay. I'm fooling with you. As far as I know Lotus never planned these Domino 6 clients for the Mac. Would be nice though wouldn't it! The icons are actually something I've cooked up using this nice little application called Can Combine Icons. Using the Notes icon as a base and icons from the IconFactory I've had some Friday fun.

DomBlog IconWait, there's more. Some of them might even come in useful somewhere. If you choose to ignore the copyright infringements that is. I'm thinking of using one of them as the icon for the next version of the DomBlog template. Here are a load more of them for use at your own risk.

Anyway, as you may have noticed, I am back on my feet now. There's a lot of stuff in the codestore pipeline and so many blog topics that I've had to add the ability to but them in to draft mode for future publication.


  1. Jake,

    Thanks. You don't know home timely this is.

    Thanks you again.

  2. Jake, I'm disappointed ... no Domino/PDA icon for me to steal for www.dominounplugged.com ...

    What more do you want Rob? I already gave you a favicon.ico for your site ;o)

    Let me look for a icon for the mac for a PDA. If you know of one let me know and I can do it for you, no problemo.

    Rob - if you have something more specific in mind, let me know.

    Icons from XIcons.com

  3. Jake - very nice, but I'm an iPAQ guy!

    - Rob ;-)

  4. Rob, that can be fixed. Dump the iPAQ. :-)

  5. Ouch!

    I kinda like the whole "battery gets low and wipes the entire machine" thing ... I'm keeping him.

  6. Can I download a file for use on my mac and XP? I don't see that other then the page of them. I want the individual icons. Is that possible?

    David, to get an individual icon you need to use a graphics editor to cut the large image in to smaller pieces.

  7. Jake,

    I created one with a BlackBerry, let me know where /how to upload it...


  8. I used the mail icon in a Konfabulator widget for monitoring mail, take a look:

    Hi, just wondering what is the best way to get them in as a notes database icon? I try to copy them, reduce the size and past into the icon editor in notes but it looks terrible.

    Any ideas?



  9. Good day!

    Can I use this icons for the interface of my project? I tried using them and they really look good on it.

    Do you have a particular website where i can find more of this icons?

    Thank you....

    Very beautiful! I love the icons, thanks for making them!

    I'll use some for my linux desktop, too:)


  12. Very cool, glad I stumbled upon this!

  13. Any chance you can create a set using the Notes 8 logo?

  14. Jake, where did you get the base Notes logos in a decent size and file quality? I'd like to make a few of my own.

    Wow these are really lovely!

    Do you have these as .ico files at all? Do you plan to make a notesbuddy one?

    Hi Sarah,

    Sorry. What you see is what you get. If you have a special request I can probably churn out a .ico file though.
