One major advancement since the last release of Lunchpals is the Material Design spec. This is an incredibly handy guide for creating a consistent and modern UX for the entire Android platform.
Old Launcher Icon
Here is the old launcher icon, this was a very playful design created by my very talented sister.
This is a really vibrant design, that is very clearly a dude in a lunchbox.
New Launcher Icon
The new icon was designed following the spec, it's only 'OK' in my estimation.
Overall I like how this looks more "Material", but I have a couple of gripes with this design.
- Kind of lifeless
- Hard to tell if it's a lunchbox or a briefcase
- Not totally sold on the colors.
For now it will do, but this feels like "placeholder art" to me.
