Gary Hughes engaged us to create the original app icon for PodGrasp for Mac and iOS. With the release of iOS 7, we translated the original design to fit nicely with iOS 7’s styling and also made some design changes to make the icon more dynamic. Starting with the hand and ear buds from the original icon, the design proceeded through several refinements of the fist to help maintain the familiar metaphor that would continue to be used on the Mac OS X version. We also explored different ways to extend the arm out of the icon space to achieve a more energetic, self-contained shape. You can find Podgrasp for iOS 7 in the App Store.
