Just For Fun: Building SVG Icons With inkscape
The inkscape SVG editor application is really cool!

I created the Encapsule.io "blue burst" icon as an SVG while exploring the amazing application inkscape.

Initially I was just screwing around. But later, I decided I really liked the look. So, I dove into inkscape and created a small collection of similar icons to badge Encapsule packages and libraries.

SVG has been around forever and is a mature and stable text file format. Besides being scalable, SVG is generally quite small when compared with a JPG or PNG which makes it attractive for use where size matter (so always). Also, support is solid (and quite fast) with all the major browser vendors providing out-of-the-box rendering of UTF8-encoded SVG text returned by your sever with the Content-Type: image/svg+xml header.

Recently, I decided to test out the scaling performance on this site and added the background image you see behind all pages now. Cool!

Note that all of these images are built up from twisted and warped hexagons.
