…It’s Things Thursday: CelebriDucks?


CelebriDucks are rubber ducks that have been modeled after the duck-ized icons of film, music, athletics and history. From celebrities and famous figures to mascots, athletes, heros and more, over 200 different CelebriDucks have been created, and no one is immune to duck-itization.

Each limited edition duck comes in its own container, and can be kept as a collector’s item or floated in the bath for a little extra fun.

Jon Hicks is probably most famous for his designing of the Firefox and Thunderbird icons, but it’s also interesting to take a look into his design process for other icons as well and see how they evolve into a final design.

Recently, he finished a series of icon designs for the Linotype FontExplorer app (aka FEX), including 280 new icons in several different sizes, and he uses his blog to highlight some of the initial concepts sketches for the Pro and Server editions, as well as some hurdles faced along the way.
