Louie Mantia, a former designer at Apple and Square, has posted a redesign concept for the icons in iOS 7.

One of the most disliked features in the iOS 7 has been the new SpringBoard icons. Complaints about the style and colors have led to numerous redesigns already. Mantia keeps the same style in mind but tweaks the colors and spacing to create a more balanced result.

Almost a year ago, I took a day or two to redraw the iOS icons. Since then, Apple's introduced iOS 7, with a visual style that is fascinating and new. The talented people at Apple have worked really hard to create something pretty cool for us.

Today, I revisited that original task and took about a day to understand the new style. Simpler, smoother, subtler. While I don't employ the grid they created (and while I instead use the colors I chose), these feel interesting and balanced. Vibrant and bold, but not overbearing.


Take a look at his design below. You can also check out a comparison of the old iOS icons and the new ones here. Which do you like best?

There are various icon designs for iOS, however, seems its just getting simple while the iOS platform itself is more sophisticated. Hopefully, the design in the next level version be more unique and impressive. Regards. Revin of http://www.digitekprinting.com/

The upper icons is much better because the design of the icons is consistent. Apples icons is not. It look like Apple have designed each icon individually. The Mail App icon seems to be pressed because the gradient color is going from dark to light. I hope Apple will correct some of the icons.

Apple is great in design icons. Love it! People should not complain but appreciate their works.
