Commons Android App Icon

Wikimedia Commons’ Android application is a free, easy-to-use image uploading app that allows one to donate photos to Wikimedia Commons, Wikipedia’s free media repository. I designed the launcher icon of the app to replicate the rather complex shapes of the Wikimedia logo while affording it consistency with Android design guidelines by giving it slight depth on the top and light shadows. This is my first open source contribution in design.
