Icon Design Project Showcase

Big Things Come in Little Packages.

Never under-estimate the power of the icon. No other single UI element has the ability to make or break the implied quality of a product or service with a single glance. Over the years, The Skins Factory has created gorgeous 2D & 3D icons, including many mission-critical (and mind-blowing) collections for companies like Intel, Disney & Toyota. Employing the world's best icon artists, we're able to create everything from flawlessly-executed 2D silhouette toolbar icons to stunning animated 3D masterpieces that convey flawless detail at any scale, from the desktop all the way up to billboard size.
