I know what you’re thinking. “He’s already done an iPhoto icon! Why is he doing it again?” Well, if you’ve been following the news you’ll know that Apple is about to update its iLife apps on iOS, and the designs for the icons have been discovered online. I’ve worked on some new Mac icons using these leaks (like last week’s GarageBand icon) and they should replicate pretty closely the feel of the new icons, and today’s design is iPhoto.
My previous iPhoto design pulled together aspects of both the iPhone Camera and Photos apps, and while it worked quite well, it wasn’t quite what Apple would do with a standalone iPhoto icon. This one mimics the upcoming iOS icon very closely, with another bright iOS 7 gradient to complement the simple design.
I’ve been working on an updated iMovie icon, too, so that will be appearing later this week, and then my mission turns to the iWork suite (Pages, Numbers and Keynote), which have also had new icons for iOS 7.
