Playing around with some flat saturated gradients…
5 months ago
I found this icon only after 1 minute of searching!!!
Btw, why anyone think that iOS 7 mean that all MUST do FLAT icons?
Try imagine that ALL start doing LOGOs in one style!?
Did you find any difference between such logos?
Same is here. All start making one stile Icons~=Logos for their Apps.
Well if you don't need be unique, may be this is right way.
@Vlad "ssh4" cool
@Anthony Lagoon Well I did find it right away.
Have you tried doing less of a "shine" for the top of the gradient, I know that will flatten it out even more. But not sure if the light start of the gradient is too strong? But otherwise looks great Love the iconography.
btw, how did you get a teams account!? :P
@Vlad "ssh4" dribbble is an incredible platform for positive useful critique, to help each other grow learn and refine our abilities as creatives, your comment is rather subpar and benefits no creative progression, seems to me that your anger for flat design would be best served on your own blog.
Thanks @Juan Arreguin, I think its just blown out a bit from the photo… but I'll definitely keep that in-mind. Actually toned the default top shine down by half. Will toy with doing it more. But really just playing around with the idea.
Oh, as for a team account… Santa came early this year ;)
@Vlad "ssh4" interesting feedback coming from a designer who has broken every single rule from Apple's guidelines on how to design an iOS icon. We certainly will have no problem finding your icons, but will indeed have a major problem reading them - http://cl.ly/PtvH
There's my 2 cents - http://cl.ly/PtSS
@Eric Hoffman please point me on broken rules on my icons please. (In my post) This is really interesting for me.
@Nicholas D'Amico why you think i criticize @Anthony Lagoon work? This is reality that i find this blue icon last on this photo. And this take for me more than one minute.
Btw, Apple never say that designers MUST do FLAT design now. Them Just say this: "The UI helps users understand and interact with the content, but never competes with it." This is main IDEA of iOS 7!
I like it, Anthony. I much prefer this one to the current design; truth be told. ☻
Your icon looks ok. It may be a bit booring though, but I understand you try to follow the flat style.
Haha every time I see that mail and phone icon I wonder if the designer actually made a good looking icon and applied a +100 saturation.
@Vlad "ssh4" you're an adult (at least I think you are), go read the guidelines for yourself. You have the time, as we all know this from your time it takes you to find @Anthony Lagoon's icon.
Thank you all for all of your comments. I find this flat vs. dimensional debate to be hilarious and intreaging both at the same time.
@Vlad "ssh4" You are right that I could have done more to highlight, or call attention to the app icon, but my intent was to see what a new version of an existing icon would look like both in comparison the existing app icons, as well as the new apple icons. My intention was not to show some beautifully polished pixels… as I just don't find flat all that interesting on its own. Hence not adding a "real pixels" version. I do appreciate you giving feedback even though it did come across a bit abrasive.

I will refrain from weighing in on the commentary...but dude, team account whaaaat??? Lucky dog you.
