Re: GNOME High Contrast Icon Theme

Sorry about the time bomb! I was thinking something similar to what Joanie ultimately suggests - that it might be better to have different "types" of clocks. This type of solution is used in Gnome Icon Themes for security states (low security is a wooden shield, medium a plain metal shield, etc.) However, I was thinking like a fully sighted person drawing in black and white.

The scale issue is the main problem that I am having when I use the approach shown in figures 5-7. Adding an indicator of state, etc. is the best solution in terms of providing the user with the full meaning of the icon. However, because of size limitations, it is difficult to produce an icon which is easily "read", even by me. However, the all of the feedback I am getting is very helpful. Having a better understanding of how users see is definitely key to finding a good solution.

Joanie, I saw figure 3 as a time bomb and the white band is simply a
rubber band or something to keep the clock attached to the dynamite.
