I agree with keeping the old icons. they can update them but it would be cool to keep the triangular shaped concept. I loved that.

I personally love the new icons. The old one looked quite dated and hinted towards skeuromorphism, which isn't as popular now as it was 10 years ago. I welcome the icon change, though it'd be nice to have the corners rounded ever so slightly

Also, how does the “Publish” icon (which should be “Publisher”) relate to multi-page documents? And how does the “Design” icon (which should be “Designer”) relate to vector drawing? :/

Good day, I'd like to introduce myself as  a new fan of Affinity. My name is Allen and I recently switched to Affinity Designer last month out of frustration for Adobe Illustrator.

For those asking, if the icons can be changed for MacOS, yes it can be done. :D

Follow the steps below

1. Go download yourself any Affinity software icon of your choice, make sure it is in .png format.

2. Go to your Downloads folder and Double-click on the downloaded .png icon file. This will open in Picture Viewer by default in MacOSX

3. Press Cmd + A (Shortcut Key for Select-All), this will select the image from within your Picture Viewer Windows. Then, press Cmd +C (Shortcut Key for Copy),

    this image will remain in your clipboard for the time being.

4. Go to Applications folder and navigate to where your Affinity Software folder is.

5. Select the icon of the Affinity Software you wish to get the icon changed.

6. Press Cmd + I (Shortcut Key for Get Info) again, this will bring up the Get Info properties box.

   Note: There is also another way of bringing up the Get Info Properties Box and that is to Right-Click on that Software Icon that you want changed.2141309124_GetInfoContextualMenu.jpg.77da26c708446237c2f5cd49f75d3d4f.jpg

7. Select the icon of the Affinity Software on the upper left of the properties window.

9. And now for the final touch. Once you have selected that icon in the Properties windows, perform Cmd + V (Paste)

10. Now, you've got yourself that icon replaced.

 

Hopefully that solves and helps those who want to customize their app's icons. :) Btw, been doing that ever since OSX came in.

I agree with the new icons, but nevertheless they are futuristic to say the least. sleek and clean. I work on both PC and Mac. Mac at Office,

PC at home.

 

Cheerio and Best Regards.
