Leopard-Style iTerm Icon, Take 2

Several days ago, I posted a suggestion for a new icon for iTerm, a terminal app that many developers prefer over the standard Terminal app. The first version was just a few standard Leopard icons thrown together. A few days later, I updated the icon with a more balanced, albeit less-colorful, version featuring a vectory globe.

At the developers’ request, I have updated it once again. The color has been brought back to the globe, and the smaller versions (32px and 16px) have been simplified a bit for a cleaner appearance. I encourage you to try the new version. You can click it to download the .icns file, which may be placed inside iTerm.app/Contents/Resources. Enjoy.

    Definitely a major improvement! And so timely… You made this not even a month ago and I just now finally got sick of that tired old iTerm icon.

    This icon was made over a year ago. Any reason the developer never integrated it into the actual application?

    @Mitchell - That is a good question. I don’t know. I’ve been meaning to follow up with them.

About This Site

About the Author

That’s me in the photo above. My current profession is web development. Therefore, it is the subject of this site.


Postpostmodern is the name of this site and my alias on most of the web. There's nothing really special about the name Postpostmodern. I studied art in college during the years after postmodernism, and nobody knew how else to classify the state of things other than silly words like postpostmodernism.

Sorta Blogish

I'd call this a blog, but I don't feel it fits the 'log' format. My goal is to publish articles on web-related topics that interest me, and while some articles may be time-sensitive, I would prefer that the organizational focus be on the categories and tags rather than chronology.
