We are aiming to make as much of our software open source as we can, so that others may benift from its development. We would like to provide a set of icons to represent our projects (one icon per project). The projects in question are all distinct from each other, but ideally the icons would feel like a family, such that they are in the same illustration style. The projects we would like icons for are:
Description: Primarily a configuration library, Knobs gets its name from the idea that there are lots of "knobs" to turn in an application configuration. Imagine all the knobs on an audio mixing desk, or large knobs and dials on machinery... these are the kinds of images that we had in mind when we named the project.
Description: Quiver is a multi-graph modeling library. The project is called Quiver because for graphs, there are nodes and edges, and the lines between the nodes form arrows, and a in archery, a quiver is used to store arrows (tenious I know, but stay with me). Quiver is mostly used for modeling interconnected things, be it networks, or domains.
Description: Delorean is a pun on the "back to the future" films, given that it converts from a datastructure called Task, to one called Future, and vice versa. Happy to have any back to the future-style icon for this :-D
Description: A fast, communication system for internal datacenter systems, Remotely provides safety and speed for RPC-style network transactions. The project is called remotely simply because one system is calling another thats remote - please take that metaphor whereever you'd like to go with it.
Description: a simple async logging library. Journal is named as such because of the metaphor of writing things down for to review later.
Description: a tool for restricting build-time dependencies in large distributed build systems, blockade gets its name from forming blockades around certain sets of user-definable dependencies.
