I am Tolga. A product designer and developer and founder of customico.com, mastermind.vision
I want to share with all you my happiness and how I earned $6,500 in 6 days.
For a long time, I wanted to catch the trend and put forward a successful project.
... when Apple first announced the Big Sur OS system, I said: "that's it!" and started designing minimalist icons for Mac OS.
However, I soon learned that the default system icons were not changed in Big Sur (shit). And I deleted the project. This was a complete disappointment!
What happened next? A miracle happened and I found out that in iOS 14 can change app icons indirectly.

This was truly a miracle for me, I could do what I wanted to do! (In a bigger market YAY!)
I suspended all my work and arranged a redbull night (no sleep) and more than 110 icon designs in one night:
In just one night! This is madness! I've never been so tired but I shouldn't miss the trend.
24 hours later I finished everything and only shared it on twitter.
Nobody cared for the first hour! Disappointment ... I thought I was wasting my hours...
and then 2-3 users purchased my icon set every few minutes.
This was surprising. I've never been this excited. I was expecting this but still surprised. That night I kept sharing it with people on Twitter. I asked a few of my friends to share customico.
I know this is a temporary trend. But watching the stripe notifications is really motivating! Everybody is happy.
I'm still working on new icon sets. Several users join every 10-15 minutes. You cannot know without experiencing this excitement.
If you are interested, I can share my strategies with you soon.
Stay on track.
I started Customico to see what I can do with a trend (ios 14)
