This session is packed full of stories, advice and pixels as hell blow your mind with a neon-infused journey that teaches you how to create the single most important visual aspect of your product; the App Icon. Learn why Icons are the most important visual aspect of your product and get to know the five core aspects of successful Icon Design. There’ll be something in it for everybody whether you’re just about to make your first app icon or a seasoned veteran.
A really upbeat exploration of app icon design ranging from 30–60 minutes in length (or up to a full day if made as a workshop). It gives people both some practical advice specific to making icons, but at the same time uses this specific craft as a key to uncovering universal qualities in design. Can be given as a standalone inspirational talk or as part of a hands-on workshop where I provide the tools and guide participants in making icons. I have been giving variations of this talk / workshop for 3 years now, and it is always a great and fun experience where I get to share one of my big passions with the audience and teach people some universal qualities that can be used- not only in icon design but in making things in general.
