I've created this icon for the Mac app I'm working on. The icon graphically shows how the app works. Please try to guess what the app does…
Answer: the icon shows how the front window is visually highlighted by placing a translucent dark screen over background windows. That is literally what the app does to reduce screen clutter and help to focus.
I have used physical cardboard cutouts and paper sketches to experiment with different "window" layouts. That was quite fun. The final layout is designed to adhere to OS X Yosemite icon grid so that the icon looks right at home in the Dock.
HzO stands for the name of the app – "HazeOver". The abbreviation had stuck from the very first iteration. It also fits nicely as a menubar icon.
I'm not a pro designer, so I'd like to know whether my design intentions are properly expressed and what you think of the execution. Thank you and thanks @sheglove for inviting.
