Le Origin of Moonshine

Moonshine was never intended to follow Material Design guidelines. In fact, from the "Project Hera" leak a year ago, there were only 15 icons to reference from. 1 week later, Moonshine 1.0 was released to Google Play. (Thanks +Avery Massenburg​​​​​​​​​​​​​​!)

Later that year at Google I/O, we finally got an understanding of what the Project Hera "leak" was referenced to; Material Design.

We then decided we didn't want every icon to follow the same grid like Material Design ( with already a couple hundred icons made, we didn't find it that wise to redo them all but trust me, we seriously thought about it. ) We wanted the icons to follow more of the Project Hera aesthetic instead ( since that is what Moonshine was based off of in the beginning ). But honestly, who knows what Project Hera was based off of. Did Google follow the same grid as I/O's Material Design? Did it have the same Material color palette?

We may never know. IF those "Project Hera" icons were the real deal, and got green lighted to final production (AKA, Android Lollipop) we would have to contemplate on also updating Moonshine to Material...BUT..Since it was only a leak (and stayed a leak) we were in the green to use Hera as it's own design language. 

A few months later, we initiated the process to take some design aspects of Google's very own Material Design guidelines, and add them to Moonshine ( as an update we added the materialesque shadow behind every icon, AND updated all the colors to the Material palette ). With that being said, it's "inconsistency" is on purpose. It's more of a "free form" pack, and instead is supposed to replicate icons in more simple iconography.

So yes, not every icon is supposed to have a long shadow, be square or circle, or even follow the same characteristics from another icon. That's the beauty of Moonshine. Every icon is different and doesn't represent another in the same style.

This is without question the best icon pack available, the icons look so much better than any other Hera type icons by mile, even superior to Google's own icon set.

Material Business Cards are now ready to purchase!

Due to the incredible response to many of you, I decided that it was time to open shop. I am teaming up with +Spiderfly Studios to produce a LIMITED run of premium stock, 16pt thick (think of a really good postcard) business cards. The price ranges from $35+ from a variety of quantity options (100, 200, 500, 1000).

If you don't want to purchase directly from +Spiderfly Studios then that's fine. For $12 you can contact me directly and I will make your business card and send you the print ready PDF files only. Not the PSD

So basically, here are your two options.

$35-  We collect your info through Spiderfly, make the business card and send everything to the printer for you. You get the business cards right at your doorstep. No PDF files, PSD, etc. We do all the work for you.

$12- You personally contact me (email, hangouts, etc), give me your info (website, phone, social media files, etc to fill out the business card) and I will send you back the print ready PDF files only. (Bleed, 300ppi, etc). From there, you can choose what company you want to print with these files.  (I only take Paypal or Google Wallet)


There are two variants of the card too. You have the cleaner, less bolder look; or the bolder, more streamlined look (with the colored name bar) If you decide to go the $12 route, please tell me which variant you want! If you go the $35 route, you can just choose from the style options.


I can not thank you guys enough for this opportunity! I hope you guys purchase and enjoy the design as much as I do! If you have any questions, please just comment down below. 

Feel free to +1, reshare, etc!

We just pushed a hot-fix for Moonshine. This fixes an icon search bug which forces the user to only display the icons they searched until the app restarted.

Also fixed a broken link within the FAQ.
