iOS 7 Mac icon project: Twitter

The Twitter icon gets the iOS 7 icon treatment in the latest project update – download it below

icon comparison

I’m back on the third-party apps now, and Twitter seemed like the next obvious choice. It’s an app I use every day, and it’s always in my Dock, so it was the next app on my list.

The icon is pretty straightforward. Rather than the Mac version of the basis of the design, I actually grabbed the iOS icon and based the colours from that. The bird was the obvious choice for the icon itself, and the gentle blue gradient looks really nice.


When I started the design, the outline of the icon was blue and the centre was white, but I switched them around to make the colours a little more obvious. In the end, the blue bird and white outline is actually reminiscent of the way Apple integrates the Twitter icon into iOS. In the sharing menus, the Twitter logo is this way round, for example.

Both options are available below, so you can grab whichever you prefer and apply it using LiteIcon. I’ve been getting a lot of requests for Aperture and Final Cut Pro X recently, so they’ll be next on my list before moving onto the 25+ other requests I have. Lots to do!
