Creating Android Icons on Affinity Designer

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am going to make a set of Icons in the material design style,


Has anyone got any tips on what size i should make my document, and what grid i should use etc?


i took a look at googles guidlines here and underneath is a snippet, how do i create an edge of 1dp?


DP unit grid

Android expects product icons to be provided at 48dp, with edges at 1dp. When you create the icon, maintain the 48-unit measure, but scale it to 400% at 192 x 192 dp (the edge becomes 4dp).

You could create a new document set to 192 x 192 pixels @ 72 dpi. Add a rectangle to the page that fills the document and then apply a 4px stroke making sure Align Stroke to Inside is selected in the Stoke Panel.
