I do a lot of pro bono work for companies and charities that I believe in. Whitestone Motion Pictures is a company that creates short films. They originated from 12 Stone church creating their promotional short films and have since went out to make their mark. Being a part of their “protege program” I have developed some graphics and promotions for their short films. A recent one I created was for “Fear Itself”, which is an homage to Alfred Hitchcock and his films.
They obviously wanted a promotional to reflect the style and period of Hitchcock. I designed a tabletop of common items you might see in that era. There are a few subtle things in this design. One being random bird shadows on the table. I wanted to give the feeling that there were birds you could not see flying around in the room. Also, if you mouse over the birds on the typewriter they will fly off and randomly come back. Notice that the watch hands are moving erratically. Another vague item is Hitchcock’s famous profile that is watermarked on the book.
I had a lot of fun creating this as I do not get be so creative at times with my clients. You can see the at http://www.anythingdesign.com/multimedia/hitchcock

I develop icons all of the time for software applications, apps, and favicons for web sites. I recently learned that the apple OS has developer tools to help with this. I also learned that you can embed several sizes into one .ico file which is very convenient as it uses whatever size the device needs.

Here is a solution for designing icons on Mac OS X
