Information Card Icon Usage Guidelines Updated

Information Card IconDuring Catalyst in San Francisco we announced the now-familiar Information Card icon and its accompanying usage guidelines. Since then we’ve received community feedback on clarifications we could make to the guidelines. In response, we’ve publish an updated version of the guidelines addressing that feedback and an accompanying updated complete icon zip file during Catalyst in Barcelona.

Specifically, we were asked if we could be clearer that the icon can be used in contexts discussing and promoting Information Cards, not just in software, and some felt that the spacing guidelines were overly restrictive. My favorite feedback along these lines came from Dale Olds, in his wonderful Fashions in information card beachware post, where he wrote:

Thanks to Mike for the information card shirt. I try to wear it in compliance with the logo usage guidelines, but I think I probably sometimes stand too close to other images and I spilled some salsa on it. I’ll keep working on it.

So don’t worry Dale… I’m glad you’re enjoying your shirt and displaying the icon to the world. Heck, you can even print some cool new ones of your own using it if you want. (And if you do, it’d love it if you saved one for me!)

    Shirts? SHIRTS?

    So here is myself presenting a bunch of Information Card stuff in the UK, and rolling out some POCs with Planky at MS and all the time we’re wondering where the goodies are and no-one in the team ever mentions shirts.

    I shall expect a big parcel at some stage soon then? :D

    I love it when an Information Card log-in works, although the startup is a little sluggish on my 3GHz Pentium 4 XP SP2 machine.

    Hey, shirts!! We wantz shirtz.

    IIW 2007b in December would be a good place for shirts. I’d pay for one.
