G5 is my first (but hopefully not last) personal icon theme. Although it generated quite a bit of excitement among the theme community at the time of its inception, my obtaining a full time work position killed its progress. Furthermore, it seemed more and more apparent that the iOS customization scene was coming to an end, with an overabundance of existing themes and the advent of iOS 7’s new design style.
As such, it remains a nod back to the days of rich, excessive detail and skeuomorphic metaphors. It doesn’t look as though G5 (aptly named, as I suspected) will come to fruition any time soon, but nonetheless, this project constitutes some of my best icon work to date.
