    Im currently making a theme, but i dont know which icon to use, keep in mind there will be other colors besides orange:

    Im also thinking about making an app icon mask, but i dont know how it would fit for the first icon. Or maybe should put a black border or border of the color icon?

    If you want to use an icon mask, I'd go for the second one

    Please Register or Log in to view images

    The first one would cover too much of the icon.

    use the first one, but you've got the same radius on the outer and inner edges of your orange rectangle which makes it look odd

    the radius of the inner edge should be x pixels smaller than the outer, where x=thickness

    i think it looks fine, but i dont understand what you mean, the outer radius is
    Width=88
    Height=92

    could you give me an example.

    He's talking about the radius of the corners. The radius inner edge of the orange rectangle should be a bit smaller than the radius of the outer edge.
