Why?

You are not an unique snowflake so don't try to make your icon stand out by "de-buttoning" them on the home screen.

No matter how beautiful you are, you are not better than everyone else by removing the border or gloss. You are not special. You are not being clever. You are hindering the overall interface consistency.

If the background has to be fully black, simply leave the icon gloss on or create a custom graphic border. See Hall of Correctness on the right for some examples of how to deal with black-themed icon.

If you'd like to find a designer to help fix/touch up your icon, you could check this database list: Icon/UI Designers

Where are you?

Ah there you are.

And you too.

Yep you get it now.
