  6. Amajsaz says:

    Awesome set of icons, I love the creativity of icons that have been pushing the limits of the iPhone icon constraints. It's amazing what designers can do with perspective. Nice post!

  11. Tara says:

    freakin' gorgeous icons you've got there!!

  12. Casey Dennison says:

    Love em' Chris! These designers have an eye for design to get this detailed. I would image these icons would take quite awhile to complete.

    All the best,

    Casey.

  13. HC says:

    I hate to be a downer on this, but they all look like the same person (?) did them…though they are nice, they look Adobe "manufactured" (for lack of better term).
    But I DO like the rocket ship.
    Also, how about some triangular, oval or circular forms?

    Okay, the main point is "super-detailed", but even these are screaming for some variety.

    Okay, just shoot me.

  14. Nathaniel Dodson says:

    These are awesome! Detailed iOS icons may just be my new favorite thing!

  15. vectorbug says:

    While these are great and well detailed little illustrations, it shouldn't be assumed they make great icons, even with the Retina display. We seem to be forgetting some fundamentals of functional design: Less is more.

  16. Daniel Bakan says:

    I love these icons and I can spend hours on dribbble exploring such amazing work. The sandwich and the cigar box are just amazing and so are the others.

    Great collection, Chris!

  17. Gunjesh Kumar says:

    These icons are simply awesome. Surely these will take the computing experience a long way.

    Thanks to apple for introducing retina display. It has given UI designers a complete new arena.

    Thanks Chris for collecting these!
