ikonic: 180 real iOS icons | Radesign ikonic is a set of 150 180 pixel-perfect icons designed specifically for iOS. The icons are highly consistent, compliant with Apple’s iOS HIG and look sharp on Retina displays. Why I created ikonic In my experience of designing over 25 iOS apps, I found two basic issues with the icons sets available in the market: The icons within an icon set are inconsistent with each other – they’re a muddle of sharp, rounded, minimal, detailed, thick and thin varieties.

The Paris Time Capsule Apartment A Parisian apartment left untouched for over 70 years was discovered in the quartier of Pigalle a few summers ago and I’ve been meaning to share the pictures with you. Time to unlock the vault … The owner of this apartment, Mrs. De Florian left Paris just before the rumblings of World War II broke out in Europe. The team that had the honor of opening what must have been a very stiff old lock for the first time in 70 years, likened the experience to ‘stumbling into the castle of sleeping beauty’. There is a further twist to the story. With some expert historical opinion, the ribbon-bound love letters were quickly recognized as the calling card of none other than Giovanni Boldini, one of Paris’ most important painters of the Belle Époque.
