Canonical have hired Faenza icon maker Matthieu James to work on a new icon set for Ubuntu.

The news was revealed by Mark Shuttleworth during a community question and answer session earlier today.

Asked by us whether Ubuntu 13.04 would see changes to the default look and style of Ubuntu, Shuttleworth replied:


YES. WE HAVE HIRED THE AMAZING MATTHIEU [JAMES],
WHICH MEANS WE CAN START THE ICON PROJECT.”


James’ squared Faenza icon set is one of the most popular third-party icon sets on Linux, having been downloaded 661,689 times from its DeviantArt page alone.

Good move in my opinion. Always liked Faenza myself.
