iOS 7 icon template

Having watched this video by Apple, I personally felt that the photo app icon is one of the best looking icon amongst all of the new iOS 7 default app icons, albeit the icon was irrelevant to the app itself.

Marble UI Kit

Recently, I’ve made a switch to Sketch after using Photoshop for almost 9 years. To test the app out, I designed a UI Kit for practice. I’m impressed how quickly I can add styles to shapes and text. The ability to create art-boards and pages makes it easy for me to keep track of multiple art works in a single sketch file. Feel free to download and let me know what you think.
