Careful! This post is looking a little old and could be inaccurate in many, many ways
Today I have been surprised to find my website, or more specifically my favicon highlighted in Smashing Magazines 7th Favicon Episode. This is where the guys at Smashing Magazine list some of the newest examples of ‘beautiful favicons’ (their words not mine). It’s incredibly rewarding to have your work recognised in such a way, especially as in this instance I have not actively sought inclusion as with a number of CSS gallery websites my website has featured on.
I must admit I put little work into the favicon itself as it was a natural progression from what I had designed as my website logo. When creating the favicon it was only tweaked slightly so that the icon would appear on a range of background colours including white.
