The Mac operating system is used by millions on laptops and iMacs around the world. Each program for OS X uses an app icon which can be resized in the dock(among other locations).

I’ve been a fan of icon design for years. Much like how a logo represents the tone and personality of a company, an icon represents a program or app. Both make use of a tiny canvas size and often have a lot to say with little space to say it.
