Surely you don't expect me to remember the name of the person who made
the icon!  The reliable way to identify this image is "the image
displayed in the Emacs fancy start-up screen".  (If I understand you
correctly, that is.)

Rob Davenport has made icons from the logo. It is not very easy to make good logos since they are so small.

Icons are used to give users something to click on.  How do you
propose to use these icons?  Where will they be displayed?  What will
they do, when the user clicks on them?

Maybe they are not only there to click on? Are they not also a tool for organising the visiual view and to give an impression?

On w32 the icons would be stored in emacs.exe and emacsclient.exe. Those icon then shows up in a lot of situations:

1) When you view a w32 directory list or file box that includes them.
2) When you view any such list or file box with files that are "associated" with any of those exe files. Clicking on them will (hopefully) take the action tied to the association (like opening the files with emacsclient). 3) On the w32 shortcuts pointing to the exe files. On those you can click to start running the exe files. You may most often also use drag and drop.

I am not sure if this answer is helpful to you, but since the communication delay is quite long I preferred to bit what I think is a bit elaborate.
