    I’ve always enjoyed trying to work out the most optimal way to create certain icons. I’ve been exploring this even more over the past couple of weeks. If you have any questions, or icons you find difficult to create, please let me know.

    Or, if you have some cool tricks, please share. :)

      Wow, you got this down to a fine art! Really interesting to see the gifs running through the steps.

      Great stuff. I should attempt some of the ones from that list I’ve missed.

    Really nice tipps! What did you use to create the videos? I really like those click animations.

      Thanks! The screen recording was done with Screenflick, exported as ProRes 4444, imported into Photoshop using Import → Video Frames to Layers, some tweaks were made, then I exported GIFs from Photoshop.

      Screenflick is great. It can export GIFs directly, if you want.

        Thank you for the info Marc! Screenflick looks really nice. I am the author of another Mac screen recording app (https://peakstep.com/claquette/) and I am currently designing a click effect for exports. The Screenflick devs did a great job detecting click and hold/drag patterns. The effect is noticeable enough but doesn't draw too much attention (like e.g. the cursor effect in QT Player recordings).

    Awesome work Marc! I'm curious how you have illustrator setup for the one pixel grid? I used to use Pixel Preview for this kind of thing, but it has major performance issues with a retina screen
