Goodbye New Spotify Logo

If you’ve recently updated Spotify, you surely noticed the new logo. I personally didn’t mind the old logo, but the new one…. not my cup of tea.

And here is what my dock currently looks like:

Personally, I’m not a fan. After doing some Dribbble hunting, I found this really cool cassette by Román Jusdado

After a little Photoshop action, we get this nice image

To change your icon simply do the following:

  1. Open the image with Preview (on a mac)
  2. Hit cmd + A to select all
  3. Hit cmd + C to copy the image content
  4. Go to your Application folder, find Spotify, right click and select “Get Info”
  5. Select the tiny logo (on the left upper hand)
  6. Hit cmd + V and voila!

After

The last, and final step, is to re-drag Spotify from your Applications folder.

You’re all set!

PPS: Yes, that is indeed a Pikachu icon on my doc (used for Sublime Text).
