40 Incredibly Realistic iOS Icon Designs

Read the full post

There are some great examples of iOS icon designs out there, from the simple, minimalistic, clean designs, to the incredibly detailed ones… and then there are some that are just insanely realistic. Whether you’re a developer or you’re simply interested in any kind of design, or even if you’re just a beginner designer who would like to learn new techniques and tips on how to create more realistic designs, this article will surely surprise and inspire you, and, hopefully, even help you with future design projects!

Some of these designs are truly remarkable, and the amount of detail that went into creating them is impressive. Take for example the Coke Machine iOS icon; no detail has been overlooked, from the pattern on the inside of the door to the shiny, sleek appearance of the metal exterior. Another great example is the Golden Key icon; here, you can see the texture of the red pillow atop which the shiny, golden, intricately designed key is laying. And then there’s the cat that’s stuck inside the icon, which, besides being incredibly cute, is incredibly lifelike; you can actually see, very clearly, ever hair and every whisker and the light reflecting in its eyes.

Every designer who has devoted hours and hours to create the beautiful little icons can tell you that the time spent was well worth it. With more and more apps being created every day, mobile app icons are more important than ever, as they tell the story behind the app in one beautifully crafted image, and sometimes the icon alone, if designed properly, can invite people to download an app that they may or may not have otherwise checked out. As a designer, it’s of upmost importance to have a reliable set of re-usable and editable elements to use for a variety of projects, including iOS icons. Having a library of great examples and different elements to use anywhere, anytime, will make life infinitely easier.

So here they are, the 40 incredibly realistic iOS icon designs that we love, and we think you’ll love, too! These have been created by talented, devoted artists everywhere and shared on social media for your enjoyment. Use them as inspiration for your next project, save them for future reference, or just admire them.
