these new constraints
Designing Adaptive Icons
Nick Butcher

I challenge you to explain why these new constrains that require uniform shape are beneficial.

I ask why you stop at shape and don’t continue to colour?

And I would like to know what work on accessibility went into this.

Probably about the 10th comment I have made now Nick, sorry! I feel passionate about this, its quite depressing for me as the Google Pixel home screen for me was one piece of technology that understood uniformity of shape was not a universally good thing. This feels very Jonny Ive/Apple to me — subjective visual design, without evidence — not what I had become reliant on Google for.
