Great article, Michael has some serious skills! Added to my Quuu :-)
Glad you like the piece. Yeah, Michael has some crazy skills. He is a brilliant speaker, too. Super nice guy as well.
Usually you would not think that this app icon is scalable, because of the stokes it has in it. Generally, when you have high contrasting lines and you try to scale them down, they quickly appear muddy. In this case it works great, because of the high contrast that is used here.
I may be a bit confused. Usually high contrast lines look blurry, but this looks good because of high contrast lines?
I'm just posting the article. I work for Iconfinder but I didn't write the article. I believe Ieva was quoting Michael Flarup and I'm not sure exactly what he meant. It might be worth commenting on the article and asking him to clarify. No idea if he will respond or not but we can try to get clarification. I'm afraid I won't be any help explaining though since I had no involvement in the article.
