Inspiration is very important in every aspect of life as well as (especially) designing. Today’s featured website is not conventional but its visually dedicated aspects can get your creative juices flowing. Search for tags that might be in your interest to find a plethora of images and articles on the topic.
If you look at this group of icons they’re all different but beautiful in their own way. Icons are the first thing we see, I am always intrigued mainly by the app icon design which draws me into reading details of the app. A beautifully designed icon can make someone intrigued at first glance while an ugly one turns off the potential customer.
They are all vector based and most likely done in Illustrator and touched up in Photoshop. But what else can you see?
How about the image represents the app? How vague some designs are vs. extremely apparent of what the app can do. What is being used to represent the app as a whole. For example the checkbook and pen icon being used to represent a money managing/budget app. Usage of gloss and bright colors and overlapping images, is a repetitive aspect in this group as well.
Some of these are popular and some are not. See if you can guess what the app does with just looking at its icon.
