Free Helveticons Folders

The designer behind Helveticons, the set of 245 Helvetica based icons, has released some free folder designs to spruce up your desktop a bit.

On my desktop I have standard folders for most everything, but I have 3 folders used for blog post ideas, inspiration and projects which I use different looking folders to help separate them. I switched to these Helveticons folders and now really stand out, with they’re bright yellow against the dark desktop wallpaper (I’ve been using Alex Cornell’s wallpaper). Fun and free make me happy.

    How do I install these on my Mac? I’d appreciate the help.

    @Mike – I did it by hitting Command + I on the folder that holds the icons. When the Get Info panel pops up, click the icon in the top left corner and then copy that one. Then click the folder you want to change, hit Command + I, click the icon in the top left corner and then paste the copied icon.

    Make sense?

    Yes, perfect. Thanks again for the help.
