Don't Like The Look Of iOS 7? Consider These Alternative Designs
It was bound to happen. Just hours after Apple unveiled the radically redesigned iOS 7, alternative designs are popping up across the Internet from artists who think they can do better. Designer Leo Drapeau, for example, seems to like the official look of iOS 7. However, the Paris-based designer has tweaked it a little bit nonetheless by giving it a more “detailed, coordinated and just cleaner” feel. He also retained the previously used iOS border radius for the icons.

These designs, and many others, come from Dribbble users. Something tells me that the jailbreak community will be seeking some of these folks out in the coming months. What say you?
