Designing app icons for fun & profit workshop by Michael Flarup
Come spend a full day with designer and entrepreneur Michael Flarup - learn how to become an Iconist and discuss how to pursue your dreams. This is going to be one amazing day of learning. In this 6 hour session he'll kick off with a talk about designing better app icons. Here he'll share a bit about his story and his work before deep diving into a subject he's deeply passionate about: Designing Icons. In the talk he'll discuss the 5 core principles of good icon design and give real world examples of how you work with these aspects. He'll make the point that becoming an inconist will make you a better designer.
After the break, there'll be a workshop where everyone gets to design an icon. Michael will share his tools and attendees will get to design and critique icons. There'll be prizes for the best designs. It'll be fun. In the last part of the day, Michael will host an open discussion about how to do what you love - specifically about starting businesses and being a freelancer developer and designer. Here we can discuss everything from how to pursue the right projects, how to deal with clients and how to get paid.
