MacStories Shortcuts Icons (Colour)
Ever since we launched the Traditional set of MacStories Shortcuts Icons in September 2019, we hoped to supply a multi-color model down the highway. We began with the Traditional set (through which every icon maintains the unique shade of your shortcuts) to maintain a sure degree of consistency with Apple’s Shortcuts app. Nonetheless, each Silvia and I felt that whereas some customers appreciated how the Traditional icons appeared like native Apple ones, others wished to have one thing totally different, extra customized and distinct from the standard Shortcuts icons.
That’s why we’ve spent the previous few months developing with a constant shade palette we might use in a multi-color model of MacStories Shortcuts Icons. The result’s the Colour set, through which each glyph has been painstakingly coloured by Silvia and tailored to work properly on each white and black backgrounds. Similar to iOS 13’s darkish mode, the colour palette adjustments subtly between gentle and darkish modes within the MacStories Shortcuts Icons (Colour) set for an optimum viewing expertise.
In addition to the multi-color glyphs, which I personally adore, one other key characteristic of the Colour set is the choice to decide on between white or pure black backgrounds. The latter is very attention-grabbing: when you’ve got a pure black wallpaper in your iPhone or iPad House display, the icons will mix in with the House display seamlessly, permitting you to place collectively some fascinating customized layouts.

As you may see, I’ve ended up mixing and matching each the Traditional and Colour units of MacStories Shortcuts Icons; I hope that clients within the icons will do the identical.
