To help app designers with their own tab bars I’ve collected a panoply of examples ranging the full gamut of interfaces.Since the iPhone’s original inception there have been plenty of apps using tab bars with some very unique icon designs. The release of iOS 7 ushered into a new era where all graphics have been changed over to flat colors with thin line icons. It seems to be Apple’s newest UI style pending the release of OS X Yosemite following by iOS 8.
To help app designers with their own tab bars I’ve collected a panoply of examples ranging the full gamut of interfaces. There’s icons and tab designs in here for every type of iOS application. Whether you’re just getting started or need some fresh ideas for your next iOS app – this post will surely have a little something for everybody.
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). This means icon designers need to create multiple icon sizes for each OS X application. The level of detail is often exquisite and these icons are nothing short of a masterpiece.
This gallery contains 35 Mac OS X app icons created by designers on Dribbble. Many of these apps have gotten published onto the App Store, while others were just created for practice. A few icons even include a free PSD download if you’re into that kinda thing. But regardless of your operating system these icons are truly exceptional and easy to appreciate from a designer’s point of view.
Sometimes designers make better redesigns of the product than the original products are. Let’s talk about apps. In the internet we can found thousands of great examples when redesigned icon, logo or the whole design looks much better than original one. Some of designers just like to test their skills, others are creating designs and expecting for new job opportunity.
In this collection you will find some amazing redesigns of your favorite apps like Facebook, Viber, Instagram and others. All of the redesigns was taken from most crowded home of designers Dribbble.
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.
Ever since iPhone apps started picking up traction, icon design has improved more and more. With time, designers and developers have been able to practice creating a beautiful, stylish and slick icon that suits the device it’s on, and looks great at high resolution and when it’s a tiny icon on a home screen.
It’s important to mention that it’s remarkably challenging to create an icon that looks good – it can take an extraordinary amount of work and skill to create something that looks simple, and the more complex a design, the more talent is required.
Since the launch of iOS 7, there has been a barrage of feedback – both negative and positive. Much of the criticism was based around the overall iOS 7 design, this has spurred a rather interesting reaction from some designers who have taken it upon themselves to create their own alternative design to the current iOS 7 design.
Take a look at these 10 iOS 7 design alternatives and let me know what you think.
