Adobe unveils its CS3 icons

Look, over at Adobe! It’s a color wheel! It’s a periodic table! No…It’s the icons you’ll have on your desktop for the planned Adobe Creative Suite 3 (CS3) … and boy are they hideous! See the large image.

One reader said he “thought it was a cruel hoax.” Another says he doesn’t want “Alphabet soup in my Dock.” CSS Zen Garden creator Dave Shea asks “Did I sleep through the announcement where Pantone bought Adobe or something?” One user went so far as to create a useful icon legend on Flickr so we could understand the damned things.

Here’s more background on the eyesore, which kinda looks like Adobe’s version of Sauron’s evil, fiery eye from ‘Lord of the Rings.’
