Presenting Lumos, our latest design!
We’re proud to release our newest icon design, Lumos! This new style brings together a lot of common elements into a delicious and eye-appealing design. Ever since releasing Nox, we’ve been wondering what our next creation would look like. As it turns out, it’s a culmination of a couple popular trends, all wrapped up into one complete package.
We’ve always been a fan of the curves that are seen on iOS device homescreens, so we’ve given this design a bold radius. If you have seen our previous icon packs, you’ll know that we love color. Big, bright color. That’s why we’ve decided to take a different approach this time. You’ll find a lovely subdued palette with a matte finish. We’re no longer screaming for your attention, with this design, but allowing your eyes to discover the crisp visuals naturally.
With Nox, we brought the long shadow into our designs. Suffice to say, we’re still in love with the concept. However, we have a taken a different approach to the design feature this time. What you’ll find is a more multi-dimensional, almost layered shadow. It also has a stronger gradient to give it a bit more of a unique appeal. All your favorite glyphs have returned as well as some unique enhancements made specifically for Lumos. We’re really excited for you all to see of the new designs that we’ve crafted.
Lumos is available, starting today, on Google Play! We’d love to see what you do with the icons, so make sure to post your screenshots onto Twitter and Google+ with the #Lumos hashtag!
In case you are undecided about Lumos, we’ve got a demo copy available for you to check out the design. It contains a collection of system and Google apps which will give you a good feel of the overall flavor that the icons can bring to your homescreens.
