Flashback to 1984

ClassicMacIconsThe year the first Apple Macintosh was released. Their funky black and blue screen pulsed just slow enough to give you a headache if you stared at it very long and the chunky but extremely cool icons issued in a new era for designers. To the best of my knowledge, this was the first publicly available GUI, giving rise to the notion of a desktop on your computer, a trashcan in the corner to discard unused files and a smiling Mac that let you know everything was okay.

Ben Vessey, an Amsterdam-based Art Director and Conceptual Designer, has come up with a set of icons and desktops based on those from 1984.

Do you want em? He’ll give them to you at the cost of a Tweet or Facebook post. What could be better than that?!
