#005 – App Icon
If I thought the calculator was hard, forget about that because I soon realized that designing an app icon was the next most challenging thing for me to create. My inspiration for this came from Ruby’s Diner, a local restaurant chain in Southern California. When I had started out designing the icon I wanted to create something that symbolized the company.
They happen to be famous for their shakes, and so I thought that I could design a shake for their icon. After spending several hours on it I just knew that it wasn’t working, I wasn’t feeling it. From there I decided to refresh their typography and use the new typeface as the icon. In my opinion, I feel this is a clean design on a home screen layout.
