About This Class

If you are designing mobile apps but don't know how to design a launcher/app icon or aren't 100% sure how to do it properly, this class is for you!

My name is Ljubomir Bardžić, I’m a UI/UX designer and an Adobe Certified Expert, and in this I'm gonna teach you how to design an app icon.

App icon is an important part of the app and if you think about it users see it before your apps UI and more often than your apps UI, so you as a designer should know how to design one properly.

During this class you will learn:

  • What makes a good icon
  • What are specific requirement for Android and iOS
  • What types of icons exist
  • How to design an icon for Android
  • How to design an icon for iOS
  • How to properly export an icon

As you progress through the class you will be creating two types of icons:

  • Branded icons
  • Custom icons

We will be using Photoshop & Illustrator to create our icons and you need only the basic knowledge of these tools, and even if you are new to design you will be able to take what you learn during this class and apply it on real projects right away.
