Hey everyone!! I haven't been on Google+ for a long time so here's an update on my life😅 also face reveal, I'm joining my two digital lives together...

TL;DR my new website is at http://gregives.co.uk, I'm on Twitter @_gregives, and I'm working on multiple icon packs😀

I'm currently at university studying Computer Science, which I'm really enjoying. I go to a lot of hackathons, and I'm president of http://hacksheffield.co.uk. Being at university has cut the amount of spare time I have to work on Android stuff.. however, I've decided to spend more time on what I used to love, which is graphics and icon packs. An updated Squircle should be coming soon, as well as a number of other packs🎊

Recently made a new website at http://gregives.co.uk, which just outlines my dev & design work. Whilst creating it I also made an open source snap-scrolling plugin for jQuery, you can check that out at http://github.com/gregives/snapScroll.js

I've started Twitter more recently for tech stuff (hackathons & cyber security) but I'm going to start posting graphics/Android stuff there as well. Follow me @_gregives

I haven't been on Google+ much recently, so if there's any new faces in the graphics/Android scene who I should follow then let me know (self promotions are fine😉)

Looking forward to getting back into this stuff✌️

Quick update (sorry I don't post more!), the huge Squircle update is coming along slowly but surely, about to reach 1000 icons. Also at the same number for my new, as of yet unreleased, icon pack 😄

Anyone know if it's possible to create an app which can install multiple icon packs? Almost like a (very) mini store for icon pack apps

Some more icons from the upcoming redesign of Squircle!

Also might post some teasers soon of new pack(s) I've been working on...

Which calendar apps support dynamic calendar icons? Or is it just a launcher thing?

Does anyone know of a tool to centre vectors by the centroid of their area, as opposed to the middle of their axes? Really surprised I couldn't find anything, it really doesn't make sense to centre a triangle by the middle...

So from the poll I did yesterday, 50% of people care about dynamic calendar icons. That's a lot of users who would be annoyed if it wasn't implemented in an icon pack!

So I'll be supporting it in all my upcoming packs: takes a little longer obviously but seems like it's worth it.

Do people actually care about dynamic calendar icons? If I want to look at the date, I just look at my clock widget... But maybe that's just me🤔

Some games icons I've made today for Squircle! Progress is going well: I hope to have an alpha release soon, if a few people are interested in testing then let me know!

Is there any open source initiative for Android icons? I know there was the material design icons by +Corbin Crutchley and +Daniel Hickman but I mean for normal glyphs and activities.
