Xam­arin Appli­ca­tion Icons

The evo­lu­tion of my icons for Xam­arin and Microsoft products.

Created in: 2013 – 2017
Client: Microsoft

Start­ing in 2013, when I began to work with Xam­arin (which was bought by Microsoft in 2016), I designed a ton of macOS appli­ca­tion icons. Let me show you the most inter­est­ing ones, in chrono­log­i­cal order.

Xam­arin Stu­dio 4.x – 5.x

Xs G3 Dark Hero

Xam­arin Stu­dio 6.x icon for the dark macOS sys­tem theme. The icon was nev­er offi­cial­ly used by the Cocoa API to switch appli­ca­tion icons is not ful­ly sup­port­ed by Apple and hence very unsta­ble. We decid­ed to use the light ver­sion instead.

Visu­al Stu­dio for Mac (pre­vi­ous­ly Xam­arin Stu­dio) remix­es the offi­cial Visu­al Stu­dio infi­nite logo brand­ing, but it still needs to fol­low Apple Human Inter­face Guide­lines and look native to the Mac platform.
