What makes the first impression on every app in the App Store? It’s the app icon, of course. Very often it’s the decisive thing that makes a user either look into the app’s details or skip it. At Artua, we have designed icons for dozens of apps: skeuomorphic, flat, different, and very different.
An icon for an app that should be very helpful for parents. With the help of this application, an iPhone will have an eye on a baby and let parents know immediately if it starts to cry loudly :)
This one of our first iOS icons. Gosh, how long time ago it was? We still love this one!
An icon for a poker game application. The application itself has an oriental theme, which is why the Chinese dragon had an hour to represent it!
The icon for a game is this cute but very dangerous girl in one of the game’s characters. Wanna play with fire? :)
An icon for a home interior planning tool. A room was chosen as visual metaphor which should be very obvious. But apparently the cat is the main element here. Everybody loves cats, meow!
Cisco Social App
We’re not sure if this app will be ever released, so we still can’t reveal a lot about this one. We love to design icons for Cisco anyway!
In the past, we designed a few icons for some photo related apps on iOS. Seems like the client was happy about them, so he ordered one more icon, the one for the InstaGenius application. This is an app to edit photos on Instagram.
This one is for the Gym Genius app which controls your work out. It’s a serious dumbbell icon for a serious application.
FL Studio Groove
Now here’s the icon for the new Image Line - FL Grove app - a touch-based music production & performance application. A good old fruit with a brand new image, yeah!
An icon for a photo camera app for those who always run out of places for more shots. The more photos you’ve got, the less organized they are, so this app will help you with that as well. IceCream app, enjoy!
An icon for Looping. It is a loyalty program software that uses sound to identify and authenticate users. As you can see, it was decided to use a speaker as the visual metaphor for this one.
This one is for the Loose Leaf - the sketch application. This app imitates paper and has a minimalistic interface design, so the task was to make the icon minimalistic as well.
An icon for an exciting startup. You put a small camera on your clothing somewhere, and it will make photos periodically. This one is for those who don’t want to miss anything :)
In fact, this one is not for an application. One day, we wanted to see how the moon would look on the iPhone screen. We must say, it didn’t look bad at all!
This is the icon for a photo editing app, which is very obvious from its name :) It’s another case when an old icon can be replaced with a flat trendy one.
Obviously a tough application needs a tough icon. This one is for the Arms Cartel app. The guy is one of game's characters. The client wanted it to have a 3D effect, so did we.
It’s the one for the Remotely App. The app is for safe remote access to files on the desktop computer from your iPhone.
This cute one is for the Skritter application, for those who study Chinese. The character was invented by the client, but to bring it to life was our task.
A new icon for the Superimpose application. The client requested the new flat icon be as close as possible to the existing icon in a good-old realistic style.
Not just Youtube app plays video in the App Store. Here is the icon for another similar app, but with its own functionalities. Our task was to design the icon, which will be unique, but at the same time, it should be obvious that this is video playing tool. What can be more obvious than a good old TV?
Here is the logo / icon for the game development company, The King of Animals, ladies and gentlemen. However, many people say that it’s too human, and obviously too photogenic to be an animal :)
Here is an icon for an app of our own, one for windsurfers and all other people who need to know wind forecasts. Maybe surfers should have it on their iPhones and water resistant Apple Watches? Hmm…
This is the interim version of a logo icon for a social radio platform and iOS app as well. In the later stages, we redesigned the receiver, making it more character like, but that's another story.
