In this video I talk about best practises when designing app icons and how to create memorable, apt and unique icons for mobile platforms. This is the companion video made in association with the article I wrote for Net Magazine.
You can find an abridged version of the article here: blog.appicontemplate.com/how-to-design-better-app-icons/ or buy the May Issue of Net Magazine: creativebloq.com/net-magazine
In roughly 10 minutes I go through 5 major aspects of app icon design and give real work examples of how I've worked with those qualities. It's packed full of stories, advice and pixels and I hope there's something in here for everybody – wether your'e just about to make your first app icon or a seasoned veteran.

A lot of people appear in the video as I've sourced from multiple shoots and endeavors, but none more so than Ulrik Damm (twitter.com/ulrikdamm) – my personal hand model.
