With UI design continually changing and moving forward, it can be an arduous task keeping up with latest changes in icon design. Even though trend changes have not been as drastic this year as we’ve seen in previous years, the icons have clearly become more refined, more specialized, and they have fully embraced the beauty of simplicity by blending all of the minimal features from previously popular icon styles.
