Daily UI #005 – app icon

Today’s topic was an app icon, which was a bit of an actual challenge…Even though I can set up complete web pages that reflect the atmosphere of any brand’s design guidelines, I’m still to become excellent at communicating with icons. I had a hard time coming up with an original idea, and then communicate it effectively. I drew many icons, both on paper and in Illustrator, experimented with gradient swatches to get a 3D effect. Then I decided to just go with a fancy play button with a fancy frame, because better done than perfect.
