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.
