We're looking for resources to help design custom application icons
for a consumer product. Does anyone on list have individual
contractors or consultancies they have worked with successfully in
the past? For individual contractor names please feel free to respond
to me directly.

Thanks!
Chad

I would highly recommend talking to FilterTalent.

They are a staffing agency for creative design and UI
design. Through FilterStudios they have a permanent
staff than can work on projects. They do quite a bit
of work for Microsoft. I've used them for icon design
on a project with my last company Actuate and was
very happy with the pricing, the art direction and the
process. They assembled me a team rather quickly and
did a per price per icon which was rather reasonable
when compared to employing a design firm.

I've also used them for visual design on a mobile
device and was also happy.

Chad,
Check out Yegor Gilyov. You can see his portfolio and get his contact info
on his site. He's located in Russia.

I'm working with Yegor Gilev too (he has a team of icon designers) --
we have about 6 projects made together.

And would recommend Yuri Mezentsev:
http://www.mezich.ru/

Some works:
http://www.livejournal.com/users/mezich/5385.html
http://www.livejournal.com/users/mezich/5006.html
http://www.livejournal.com/users/mezich/4817.html
These pages on russian but the pictures is all-sufficient.

Very very smart people. They're based in the Boston area. Their whole
portfolio isn't up on their site, so you should ask to see their
iconography.
