Over at The Next Web they’ve posted my latest tutorial: How to create an awesome Tron inspired app icon. If you’re up for a creative challenge, try it out.
Here’s a fun tutorial to get you started with app icon design (and perspective) inspired by Andrew Reifman’s “Bodyboss Icon 1“. If you’re new to designing app icons, this should give you a few tips on how and where to start. App icons can range from the simplistic (Facebook, Yammer & iTunes) to highly detailed and realistic (view the incredible work of Konstantin Datz). So for this tutorial we’ll be designing just past the simplistic mark.
