Yosemite’s Icons

Inspecting Yosemite's Icons

It's hard to talk about the dock icons without first mentioning the dock. The 2D dock is back, so let's take a moment to rejoice.

The shapes and sizes of the icons have been adjusted to provide a better visual rhythm on screen. I have not seen it published anywhere, but there appears to be a grid system that helps achieve this consistency. I'll get back to that, but first let's talk about the shapes.

Really, only Apple people care this much about icons (in general; obviously there are some Windows people who care about iconography).
