Icon: Bump.app

Icon designs for Bump.app. I approached Bump Technologies to design an icon for their excellent mobile app Bump.

Up to date

Just a couple more things to add, and then we’ll all be up to date :) This is something I’ve been trying to do for a long time — getting all the best examples of my work together in one place.
