Sometimes we need to create a quick icon and we don't have a designer handy. Usually in these situations I lean on icon packs like Parakeet Primaries or Glyphish. Lately I’ve needed some icons that aren’t available in packs like these, or the license isn’t suitable for what I want to use it for. In those situations I use Sketch to create icons myself. I’m no graphic designer, but I have found it helpful to know how to create basic things and export them for use in iOS projects. In this episode I design 2 icons that we’ll use in a future episode.
