Canonical have hired Faenza icon maker Matthieu James to work on a new icon set for Ubuntu.

The news was revealed by Mark Shuttleworth during a community question and answer session earlier today.

Asked by us whether Ubuntu 13.04 would see changes to the default look and style of Ubuntu, Shuttleworth replied:

"Yes. We have hired the amazing Matthieu [James], which means we can start the icon project.?

James? squared Faenza icon set is one of the most popular third-party icon sets on Linux, having been downloaded 661,689 times from its DeviantArt page alone.

One thing i always hated about Linux in general is the poor icons and GUI. They should definitely hire a good UI designer to make the window borders, buttons and such nicer out of the box.
