Sleek Icon Set Brings Elegance to Weather Forecasting Applications With Realistic Graphics for Any Weather Condition
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Aug. 23, 2010 — Guifx, an interface design studio specializing in touchscreen interfaces for home automation and embedded systems, today announced the availability of its new weather icons. Designed by Guifx’s world-class artists, the set of 32 realistic icons adds a touch of elegance to any weather forecasting application, and can be mixed and matched to represent any weather condition.
Guifx’s new weather icons allow integrators to differentiate themselves from the competition by providing the end user with unique, easily recognizable graphics for their touchpanel’s weather forecasting applications. For high-resolution touchpanels, the icons are offered in a 512 x 512 size to accent the graphics’ sleek design, and can be quickly batch-resized using Guifx’s CoPilot software for lower-resolution devices.
Utilizing weather icons from Guifx offers significant advantages to installers and manufacturers over outsourcing or creating art in-house. In addition to receiving design quality that is second to none, Guifx’s customers can see what they are getting before they make a purchase, they know exactly how much it will cost, and the weather icons are available for immediate download 24/7. A cost-effective solution, once the icon set is licensed for inclusion in a product or software, its use is unlimited.
“In any system, the touchscreen is the component that sees the most use. It sits in plain sight, so it should offer superior aesthetics to complement any high-end environment. With their rich detail and ability to be mixed and matched, our new weather icons offer the degree of elegance that consumers crave,” said Morgan Strauss, director of operations at Guifx. “For installers, the weather icons provide a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to simplify the user experience in weather applications with rich and vivid graphics. This reduces training time and increases client satisfaction, both of which benefit the installer’s bottom line.”
Provided as high-resolution PNG images with transparency, Guifx’s new weather icons set is available for download now on the company’s website for $99.99, which includes Adobe(R) Photoshop(R) source files. Updates to the weather icons, as with all Guifx products, will be available free of charge.
