Document Management Icons
Documentum, Inc. -- 1994 to 1998

At Documentum Bill was responsible for the computer graphics used in all Documentum products, and managed a library of approximately 600 icons. Here are over 100 of them, most of which were created by graphical designers that Bill commissioned and directed, and some of which were created by Bill himself. It is worthy of note that (except for the last set) all these icons produced over a period of 3-1/2 years, whether old-fashioned or modern in style, visually work well together.

Legend

created -- Denotes an icon that was created by Bill from scratch, without a prior model to work from. Note that, in the early days, many applications did not have icons for their documents, so Bill had to invent them -- typically by basing them on the application icon in some way.

modified -- Denotes an icon that Bill derived from a preexisting icon; one that had to be modified (sometimes significantly) to fit in with Documentum's existing icons.

commissioned -- Denotes an icon created by a subcontractor hired and directed by Bill.

Minimized Window Icons

Starting in Windows 3.1, windows could be shrunken down to icons (technically called "minimized"), then later restored to their previous sizes.

These icons represent various minimized windows in Documentum's WorkSpace application.

Web Application Icons

In 1998, Bill designed a new version of Documentum's SmartSpace Intranet web-based document management application. One of the goals was to make the visual appearance "sexy", so Bill commissioned these icons to replace the ones used in previous products.

The icons shown below are the 9th (and final) iteration that Bill required of the icon designer.
