Made some custom Affinity Icons for the Affinity Family of Apps.  

They're little more minimalistic than the originals.

I don't why but I like them better without the markers, camera lens, and papers. I can't put my finger on it.



I attached the icon files.

Here is a quick video I made to show how to add and remove icons if you don't know: YouTube Video

I too like the flat design more, and a colorshift would be enough for me. How ever, I can clearly  understand why they would have a need to differentiate the app icons from each other.

Yeah. You have to be a power user to remember by color only. I'll try to add some flat distinguishing features.

I agree that the snooker frames are Affinity. So why not pop a few letters in each icon?


BTW, I have mentioned this elsewhere in the forum.


Also why not add Beta to Beta app icons? As currently there is no difference to the icons on my dock.

I know this probably isn't read anymore, but is there any way you could custom design an icon for It with this visual color style? I'm theming my whole MacBook in this style and would just love to have one for affinity!

@eaton11 Great job on the designs and thanks for sharing them with us. Keep up the good work :)

@EricS. There is a way to transform the .icns to the .ico format. You need Inkscape and a png to ico converter. I've used an online converter and now I have one of these nice icons as my default one for Affinity Designer (on a Windows machine).
