Bishopp McCann iPhone Icon Design

These were designed in Illustrator and Photoshop to look like the older iPhone icons, but much larger and at higher resolution – so they could be printed large enough to be visible at a distance.

Each icon was set up for a 6 x 6 inch print, and then die cut with rounded corners. The concept was to attach these to a large black presentation board, and then have the ability to move them around.

The client wanted to do a series of presentations about the different companies they had done business with in recent months, so these were positioned on the wall as he discussed each company. In addition to the company icons, we designed other icons as visual aids relating to each part of the discussion.

This is a good example of the kinds of things we’ve done that fall outside of what you normally think of in the print business (i.e, business cards, brochures, catalogs, etc.), and we’ve done plenty of odd little custom projects like this.

Every project we’ve ever work on has been unique and interesting in some way, and this is what we especially love about print. It can take on so many different shapes and forms and it shows up in so many places – and on so many different kinds of things. It can appear on something as small as a sticker or as large as the side of a building.
