I Wrote a Book!

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 2, 2011, 11:03 PM
Rockstar Icon Designer

Launch Special: Get the book for $19, by taking advantage of Rockable's $5 OFF for 5 Days Only! (Regular price is $24. Offer ends Nov 7, 2011)

Click here to view more details and Download a Free Sample PDF

This is what I have been doing for the past 6 months, I wrote a book! Available as a digital download for Kindle, iPad and PDF (.PDF Files, .EPUB, .MOBI), it guides beginner and intermediate icon designers through the history, theory and creative process of icon design. Covering much more than popular rendering methods (although it includes that too) this book teaches the theory of perspective, lighting and usability with practical advice on Mac OS X, iOS, Android, Windows (XP and Vista) and Linux (Tango) with some tips and tricks on using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.

All up there's 270+ pages of content starting with the history of desktop icons (with pictures) and ending with common mistakes and resources.

"Veteran icon designer and Associate Editor of Vectortuts+ Kate McInnes knows a thing or two about icon design. Having worked for years as a successful icon designer, she decided it was time to share that experience with others by teaming up with Rockable Press to write her very first book called Rockstar Icon Designer.

In this book Kate not only teaches you how to whip up a good icon, but she takes you on a crash course through the world of icon design."

Beautiful, pretty, divine, lavish, vivid. These are the words you will find your mind spinning towards as you stroll through the Lounge Kat world. Kate McInnes is the mistress behind the wonderful illustrations, which will have any otaku drooling like a Pavlovian creature. Combined like the text from twisted poetry, her recent collaborations with fellow Melbourne artist Bucket ‘o’ Thought are sure to inspire.
