Designer spotlight – Timothy Miller

Pennsylvania based Timothy Miller has created one of the most popular icon sets on Iconfinder, the Ligthly icons. The icons are perfect for iOS7 design. We got a chance to ask him a few questions.

What is your focus of work?

Mostly icon design and graphic design.

Ligthly icons

Timothy’s popular Ligthly icons are optimized for iOS7.

How would you describe yourself?

Someone who’s focused on a few things I find important: my business, fitness, and living a simple life.

Tell us about something interesting you’re working on at the moment?

I just finished up an update for Ligthly icons, and I’m currently working on one for Ligthly icons Pro. Once I’m done, I plan on working on something new.


The Ligthly icons are based on a 30 px grid. All icons come in a 30px and 2x version in 60px. This matches the standard sizes for icons in iOS7.

What’s the best thing to happen to you this year?

This year I expanded my business and improved my skills in icon design.


Which current business would you most like to own and why?

I enjoy what I’m currently doing with my own little business.

What’s your favorite working environment?

A quiet room at home so I can focus on creating.

    • Thank you for the feedback. We try to keep these designer spotlights short – they are not intended to the be the full length interviews. I’ll work a couple of extra questions in for the next one.
