iOS 7 Mac icon project: Reminders UPDATED

A new week, a newly redesigned Mac app icon. Here's what we did with Reminders…

I’ve decided that my priority for the moment is recreating the standard Mountain Lion Dock layout before moving on to less regularly-used apps, so today’s design is for Reminders.
Before the end of this week I’ll have finished up icons for FaceTime and Trash, and I’ll also have to start thinking about how to do the Calendar icon, and once I’ve done those three I’ll start designing icons for other included apps (like Calculator and Dictionary) before working on apps like iWork, iLife and third-party options.

Anyway, for today I’ve created a Reminders icon. This one is extremely simple, with basic shapes and blocks of colour taken directly from iOS 7. I stuck with the background shape that I used for the Contacts icon, as I knew a different shape would look strange if the two were nearby in the Dock. Then I pulled the lines from my Notes design and added circles taken straight from iOS 7’s design. It’s a simple icon, but it’s very much in line with Apple’s own iPhone and iPad design.

I’ve got a busy week ahead, but for now you can grab all of my previous designs below, along with my Reminders icon, and get a free copy of Candybar to make applying the icons incredibly easy.
