I posted the history of the icon a month ago in response to this.
Less classic, more artsy, i like it.
I really like it, though I think it's a tad too dark
Looks great. Was worried that they would get sucked into the 'flat minimal' icon style as well. Glad they kept their personality.
As a user, I like Pixelmator and use it.
As a designer, I think the overall Apple-ish look of everything is lame. Previous icon was just of-course-its-like-photos type. There's so much potential for a custom, bold style eg. Dropbox. This new icon seems like a good step.
Icon is t h i c c (bottom heavy). While I'm sure it's pretty close to actual center, it certainly looks and feels off-center. I feel like they could've given a little more padding around the "art" or moved it up slightly to solve that issue. I like it a lot though. I'm happy they stuck to their guns and didn't flatten the shit out of it.
I actually love this, great way to stand out from the crowd
Appreciate the effort and thoughtfulness of it, don't like the design at all - feels blurred rather than painted, needs texture through the paint and a little more edge definition to dial this back. If the blurring is intentional, I still don't like it.
