Metrofy Project by oliver182 Metrofy Project by oliver182
Metrofy Project (Modern ui/win8/etc)

A joint effort to metrofy icons in Windows 8.

This is the start to bring metro/modern ui to the icons of Windows 8, that's why I started by making this first pack of icons ( I will release it when more icons are added )

So I invite everyone to join this project.

To do:

Control panel

So if anyone is interested just let me know :)

Let me know what you think.


Note: This IS NOT a concept ;)

PS. I'm back!! :D


Un esfuerzo conjunto para metroficar los iconos en Windows 8.

Este es el comienzo de traer metro / modern ui a los iconos de Windows 8, es por eso que empecé a hacer este primer pack de iconos ( los subire aqui cuando se añadan más iconos)

Así que invito a todos a unirse a este proyecto. Tenemos que reemplazar por lo menos los iconos de la cinta para la primera versión del pack.

Así que si alguien está interesado, háganmelo saber :)

Déjame saber lo que piensan.

I am interested on joining to this Project, why don't you send me a Note with a list of what's missing to complete it and maybe I can help you. As I am currently working on a Theme for Windows 8 and I realized that it would be great to have a wide collection of Icons for each Application.

This is VERY nice but is NOT METRO. Metro SUCKS.
btw it is called "Modern UI" now.

Any chance they'll fix this in the first service pack?

Please collaborate with these like-minded individuals:


I'm really starting to get tired of the inconsistency with the Metro theme and Windows 8's Aero-style (Windows 7) icons.
I think the four of you could combine your artistic views of a proper Windows 8 icon theme and have a lasting, profound influence on both users and Microsoft's creative team. :)

I agree with you completely

excellent just what i was looking for, one thing i would like to see are sets of folder colors in the main primary metro colors, green, blue red etc.
ideally i would like a tool made by a genius that changed the colors to match the explorer color.
could be a money earner for the right person. unfortunately i dont have the skillz just the ideas. :)

AdrianFrg Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013
Wow, excelente !!
Esto es algo que le faltó a Windows 8: cambiar los íconos por un estilo más plano, como los de Office 2013. Algo que veo te está quedando muy bien.
Ojalá pronto se puedan bajar, aunque sean esas que tienes en la imagen.

If I had enough time I would participate on this Project, anyway I can't really see the point of designing Icons for Windows 8, this new OS has lost all of what it made Windows XP and Windows 7 great OS.
Windows 8 has incorporated the new Design Trendings which consist on the use of Solid Colors and very Basic and Simple User Interfaces for low end devices which cannot Render Correctly elaborated User Interfaces.

It is truly disappointing to see Transparencies and Blur going away and being replaced by simple Solid Colors, it just looks cheap.

Many things that you had on Windows XP or Windows 7 are gone in Windows 8, for example there isn't a Start Menu anymore. Windows 8 was also released to soon and so far it needs more Development.

Windows 7 is just a so much better OS than Windows 8, I can't believe this way in which Microsoft just ruined Windows.

So far you shouldn't even bother on changing Windows 8 Icons, unless you are planning to use something different than more Solid Colors.
