Once again, we have gathered some of the best work in icon design. It’s interesting to see how the Apple Watch will influence icon design with its small screen. This week’s surprise was Andrew Colin Beck who’s producing beautiful icons in a unique style. Enjoy!
We’ve reached #50 of Icons Of The Week. Do you think we should continue? (post a comment below). This time we have an extra large edition with quality icons that will inspire and leave you in awe – from simple pictograms to detailed illustrated icons. And of course, a collection of animated icons. Enjoy!
Mac OS X Yosemite will come with a bunch of new interesting UI updates. The updates includes icons and just as iOS8 started a trend, this update to Mac OS X will probably also be defining a style for desktop app icons. Jim Tanous did a nice side-by-side comparison of the icons. Regarding how Apple clearly hasn’t settled on a streamlined OS X icon style, despite iOS now having a very well defined “framework” for icons.
Icons keep growing in details as they are increasingly used a illustrations on landing pages. The outlined style is everywhere and luckily allows designers to get creative. We also stumbled upon a bunch of highly detailed app icons. Even though this style isn’t “trendy” they are candy for the eye. Enjoy!
