Lately we’ve needed a small break from working on code and decided to work on the document icons (after the App Icon), we used a similar process to creating the app icon…
Maze Level Group icon

Icon design tips
In our limited experience, it’s best to design a document icon, when directly associated with your app (as opposed to icons of file types your app can open, such as importing to convert to your custom format or just importing to view the data), after your App Icon but still conveying what it is, as with our document icons each of our files show that they are associated with the Maze Editor app but don’t look exactly like the app icon on top of a generic document icon.
That’s all for now!
