iOS 7 Mac icon project: VLC

by Stephen Ashby

VLC gets a make-over in the latest iOS 7-style icon in the project

Honestly, I had every intention of starting the week with Pixelmator, but after the update to the VLC app for iOS 7, I couldn’t help myself from working on a new design based on the new icon. The results are the two icons below; one which mirrors the colours of the current Mac icon with a simplified design, and one which uses an identical colour scheme to that of the iPhone and iPad app.

The latter is actually better, I think, as it not only maintains the colours that the Mac icon is known for, but it also helps the icon stand out in the Dock. I’ve included the other anyway, so the choice is yours as to which you want to download.

Pixelmator is next, for sure, and there’s still a long list after that to work through. For now, grab LiteIcon to apply all the icons in the project easily, and take a look back over older posts containing my other designs.
