App icon design for Unlaced, an app centered around awesome shoes. The client and I decided to work on a shoebox, which has a form factor perfect for an app icon design. I custom-illustrated a high-top sneaker per the client’s specifications. The result is a highly unique and very detailed app icon that still reads well when scaled down.
