Icon: Gmail 2.0

A week or so ago, Google released version 2 of their Gmail app for iOS, sporting a spiffy, sleek, and slightly whimsical icon. I’ve been using Sparrow for iOS and Mac and have been fairly happy until recently when the lack of push email had me itching to go back to Gmail (on the web). Being used to having a standalone email app, I...

Icon: Twitter for Mac app v3.0

A couple days ago, Twitter updated it’s logo. No longer will they be using the word ‘Twitter’, or the lowercase ‘t’. Just the bird icon (named Larry) and a simplified version at that. Good for them. Now they join the ranks of Nike, McDonalds, and Starbucks as a brand without a name. Not sure if Twitter is as...

Favicon

(Tap for large image) I’ve spent a bit of time reworking the 256 pixels that make up my favicon. The old favicon’s blurry text annoyed me greatly, so the new one is sharp as a tack pixel, and has teen weeny rounded corners :) I like favicons. When I reach up to my bookmarked folders and bust down a menu, favicons make all the...

Icon: Twitter for Mac app  v2.0

I’ve updated my original Twitter for Mac app icons. Here are the list of improvements (tap here for a visual comparison). New icons are much cleaner and clearer at the smaller sizes In the 16px and 24px sizes, the Twitter bird is replaced with the ‘t’ logo. Much more crisp and less blobby at 8px wide! The dots on the...

Icon: Bump.app

Icon designs for Bump.app. I approached Bump Technologies to design an icon for their excellent mobile app Bump. I approached them because I thought the current icon wasn’t doing the app justice in terms of design and execution. I thought it looked unfinished, degrading the perceived quality of the app itself. After tweeting an...

Free: iCS5 icons

Details about iOS 5 were announced at WWDC last week. To celebrate, I’ve created a set of icons combining Adobe CS5 and iOS 5, and called it iCS5. Click the above image for a preview and full Application list. Basically, it’s the icons from Adobe’s CS5 Master Collection (plus a few extras) redrawn in a deliciously...

Made it to Apple.com

A little while ago I designed an icon for a Safari web browser extension called GmailCounter. After a bunch of hiccups Elia (the developer) had the latest version of GmailCounter approved by Apple. Which is cool. The best part though, is they’ve now updated the Safari extensions webpage to include my icon! Exciting, no? A small...

Free: 8bit  iPad2  icons

In the spur of the moment I created these 8bit iPad icons based on the old OS9 Macintosh smiley icon we all know and love. And with all the hullabaloo[1. Hullabaloo didn’t give me any issues with spell checker!] about the iPad2’s smart covers, I thought I’d better smash out those as well. You can have the .psd and .png...
