Finger Tied Icon Design

I spent much of last week working on the design for the Finger Tied icon. The icon is the first thing potential players see in the App Store, so it needs to grab their attention. It’s worth spending the time to make sure your icon looks good. I’m very pleased with how the final design turned out.

During the process, I had tweeted about how many revisions I had gone through and mused that maybe I’d post the progression when I was finished. A few people wrote back saying they’d like to see that, so this morning I put together a compilation of all the intermediate designs I could find.

So, for those who are curious about how I ended up with this final icon:

Here’s how I got there:
