Any other rules?
Once you’re sure you’ve mastered the basics in terms of guidelines it really is time to get to work to make sure you end up with a really great app icon compared to the others around.
A great app icon builds your brand
For many businesses the app is designed to support their main business and to make it more easily available to clients. Having an attractive design is key to delivering that little nudge that takes you from being considered to being purchased. If you’ve created an attractive master brand but your clients don’t connect the app with it then all is lost at that final stage.
A truly great app icon looks effortlessly designed but nothing could be further from the truth.
Creating a simple but effective app design is something best left to a designer. If you still have access to the team or individual that designed your logo then that may well be a great place to start with your app design – they’ll know your brand well and can adapt it to fit your app icon.
