iOS 7 Alternate Icons

iOS Icons

I’m honestly not very big into all of the iOS 7 icon redesigns going around since the unveiling of the new OS at WWDC ’13. However, Louie Mantia is a well-respected designer and former Apple employee who has done a fantastic job with what look like the perfect icons for Apple’s new OS. He describes them this way:

Today, I revisited that original task and took about a day to understand the new style. Simpler, smoother, subtler. While I don’t employ the grid they created (and while I instead use the colors I chose), these feel interesting and balanced. Vibrant and bold, but not overbearing.

I have to agree. These are courageous in their simplicity, but not as polarizing as the official icons created by Apple.

Kisses - “Huddle” from stereogum on Vimeo.

There’s something endearing about this Kisses video. It has some of the feel of one of the classic eighties teenage movies, but the bits with the kid almost remind me of Wes Anderson. Then there’s the lost love, the demise of a band and the potential of the summer after high school and before college.

Oh, and the song is catchy, too.
