Being a shy but elegant animal, the platypus is often ignored by the Ubuntu artwork community. This must not go on. We need art that can bring the characteristics of this wonderful little animal to Ubuntu. Candy icon theme is created by Jonian Guveli and Olibia Tsati. It is a modern icon theme for the GNOME desktop environment with the goals listed below in mind:

== Concept ==
The platypus, is shy, cute and dangerous. An interesting mix. The artwork should be in adorable colours, with a few small, menacing areas. Mostly orange and pink. Touches of danger, can be expressed in small, dark, shapes difficult to define. Make them reminscent of the poisonous hind spur in shape.
'''Consistency:''' All the icons are designed following the same guidelines.<<BR>><<BR>>
'''Easy Customization:''' The color that defines the icon theme is used only in folders and arrows. So, creating an new icon theme is fast and easy.<<BR>><<BR>>
'''Quick Development:''' The use of the one-canvas-workflow makes the development of the icons fast because all icons sizes are in one .svg file. Then the organization of the files is handled by a script and so the creation of symbolic links. This also helps in not having missing icon sizes.<<BR>><<BR>>
