The new iOS 7 icons, what works and what doesn’t

Ian Storm Taylor:

“It looks childish.”

That was the first reaction I heard to iOS 7. I’m not going to lie, when I saw it for the first time myself, I freaked out a little too. Like any good simplicity-loving designer, I was eagerly waiting for Jonathan Ive to reveal a fresh, clean take on iOS.

Ian does a really nice job comparing the icons of old with the new iOS 7 look, both what is and what isn’t right.
