As well as make cool software I also do icon, web and application design, with a focus on the Mac and iOS software market. My price for an application icon for Mac or iOS starts at £300/$500. For a bespoke quote get in touch and tell me what you need. I’m happy to offer discounts to students, hobbyists and non-profits.
As the first point of contact between your software and your customers, an application’s icon is an important part of the user experience. For many indie developers their application’s icon is also the most important part of their branding. With an ever more competitive landscape, it’s crucial to stand out and try to convey as much of your application’s identity and quality as possible.
Icons also play a key role within applications and their quality can have a large impact on the usability of your software. Is their meaning concise? Do they use sensible metaphors? Are the colours consistent and meaningful?
With years of experience in designing icons for both my own applications and my clients, I can help deliver you an excellent Mac or iOS icon, toolbar and button icons and other application graphics.
The recent “flat style” trend kicked off by Microsoft with their Metro design language and later adopted by Apple in iOS 7, means many developers are looking to update their icons to remove unnecessary elements and textures. Getting the balance right between detail and minimalism isn’t always easy but we believe the middle-road as exemplified by our iKanji touch and iKana touch icons is the right approach for most applications. Retaining familiarity and friendliness while looking at home on iOS 7.
