A selection of icons were created for the perspective “RDM” project. There was a need for both new and updated icon designs based off of an older skeuomorphic set. Throughout the design process the relationship between the icons and the user interface was focused upon. I designed the visual identity of the user interface while working on this project which helped increase my understanding of the content and user expectations these icons represented.
I reviewed the original set of icons that needed an update and documented new actions that required new designs. Throughout the process I worked closely with the client on a weekly basis sharing sketches, requesting feedback and delivering the final set of icons in the correct format.
The technical domain and content this application served created an interesting challenge when trying to define a complex action or component with line, shape and color. The application had a large number of screens, options and sections that required consistency and an understanding of their relationships.
Working with the client I defined two distinct color schemes for two separate groups of icons. Consistency was important when defining the two color schemes and sections. In order to achieve visual consistency the use of line weight, negative space and color were focused upon across each group.
