Bjango’s Marc Edwards and his Mac App Icon Design Workflow

Marc Edwards has been crafting some exceptional apps at Bjango for many years now. Bjango’s iStat suite of apps is an essential addition to my toolkit. Marc has shared his Mac app icon design workflow on the Bjango website today.

My favourite Mac app icons are simple enough to be easily read in the Dock, yet they contain interesting details when viewed up close. They have large vibrant areas of colour, yet they contain enough contrast and shading to give them a sense of volume.

If you’re a designer or just curious about how Marc designs those beautiful Mac app icons, you should read this.
