I agree. In general the interface needs major changes.

Sorry, don't agree. I find them quite nice.

I agree that they may look a bit childish (?).
Far more of an issue is that some of them look too similar, I think.

But in general: If the same manpower may be used either for new icons OR for bug-fixing I will opt for the latter.

kind regards

Problem solved - neutral icons, you don't see them. Back to focused creating. 🙂 👍

I don´t agree.
Its not (just) the color - its the Design - some of them are not clear enough, some of them too similar to others, and they are not available in different sizes..

Serif's icon choices are fun and engaging. Let's be careful what we ask for.....

Exactly. Serifs looks like icons in a creative app.

This kind of icons are worse than an overcast day in november:

I will admit (and may be in the minority) that I don’t not want fun or engaging icons. I want neutral looking icons so that I focus on what I am designing/creating—not the UI of the app.  This is why I like the monochrome option. The issue for me is many of the icons look rather similar when monochromatic so a refresh with more unique shapes would help me out.
