iOS 7 Mac icon project: Adobe InDesign CC

Adobe InDesign gets an iOS 7-inspired redesign in the latest from the icon project

icon comparisonI’m continuing the Adobe love for today’s icon, with a brand new iOS 7-inspired icon for InDesign. This is one app that we use every day at iCreate Towers, so it was high on my priority list. After last week’s Photoshop icon, the rest of the Adobe Creative Cloud designs are really just a case of altering the template I have already created with new colours and lettering, but this one was harder than it looked.

indesign-in-dockGetting the colours for the gradient just right took a long time; I was aiming for a stark contrast between the colour at the top and the colour at the bottom of the design, and finding the balance was difficult. In the end I went with a very dark burgundy colour, contrasted with a pink that is very similar to that in the official icon. However, I then found that the letters on the icon itself (which I originally made identical in colour to the official icon) were lost in the gradient, lengthening the process even further.

Still, I’m pleased with the result, and as you can see I think the icons are going to look great when lined up next to each other in the Dock. Grab the design below, check out last week’s Photoshop icon, and don’t forget that you can use LiteIcon to apply all of these icons quickly and easily.
