macOS Icon for Android Studio16 June 2022
I've made a new icon for Android Studio to add to my collection of redesigned icons for macOS. Download it here.
The inspiration clearly comes from Xcode's own app icon with the blueprint background, and the existing icon for Android studio that depicts the droidbug and a compass.
For the design of the compass I used a reference photo of a Rotring compass and recreated it in Photoshop. The proportions were adjusted to make the legs shorter and chunkier, making them fit better as an app icon. For the top hande I've resorted to using a texture of bare metal and distorting it to look tri-dimensional.

I hope you like it and let me know if you set it up on your Mac! Check out the full collection on bigsuricons.com.
