Today’s iOS 7 Mac icon project design is for Google Chrome. The icon was actually quite a strange one to create; the original Chrome icon in itself is very simple, and at first glance the icon looks pretty flat. I took a closer look, though, and there were some obvious changes to make.
First, I dropped the shadows that are present in the old design, and started brightening up the colours to a more iOS 7 style. The shape has remained the same, of course, as it’s already a very straightforward design. I was in two minds about the finished icon, unsure whether to add a white outline similar to the other circular icons in the project (like Safari and iTunes), and in the end I created both so you can choose which one you like best below. Personally, I think the one without the outline is better, but the choice is yours.
