If you’re looking to change up the look of your iPhone, using an iOS 14 icon set is a cool way to do it. You can replace all your favorite app icons with custom ones that have a consistent look and feel.
The popularity of this has taken many by surprise – including a designer who saw his quickly-created but beautiful set earn him a six-figure sum in just six days …
The designer, who goes by the name Traf, shared his experience in a blog post – including his advice to anyone else hoping to achieve something similar.
He is careful to preface things with the oft-heard adage that any ‘overnight success’ is actually years in the making; seven years in his case. His first icon set was created back in 2013 for the Cydia jailbreak store, and he says he made a total of about $17. This time, however, he made rather more.
One interesting decision was his pricing strategy: the set costs $28, significantly more than most are charging. He just had the confidence to charge a higher sum.
There’s of course an element of luck to all this, but the blog post is an inspiring read for anyone with the dream of creating something and making enough money from it to buy time to create more.
