How jamesgray started their button or icon journey
25 web 2.0 style icons in VECTOR. Possible future design work for selected artist.
Please submit designs over white background.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need 25 icons designed in vector format, preferably Illustrator. I'dlike them to have a similar look and feel to the iPhone, similar notthe same! Each icon should appear to have a "glossy appearance". Iwould like each design to be inside of a rounded edge square shape.This icon setneeds to portray a feeling of light hearted and fun with possiblegradients and attractive colors. These will need to fit into a 400 X600 pixel area so simplicity is key. Please avoid heavy drop shadows,heavy bevel effects or anything that may complicate the appearance.They needto stand together as "family" and resemble a similar style. The use offont is not encouraged, but I understand that text can often be usefulto create design elements. If fonts are used please keep it consistentfrom one icon to the next and keep in mind light and fun. Serif fonts arenot recommend. If fonts are used be sure they are converted to outlinesbefore file submission.
- I will be looking at attention to detail and coherent design. Pleasesubmit work that is organized, layered and accurately named. Please be sure to keep all colors in RGB mode.
- The icons that need to be designed are as follows:
- 2 icons for Messages ("no new messages" or "new messages")
- Add/Find New Alerts
- Online Shopping
- Local Shopping and Dining
- Customize Settings
- My Alerts
- Manage My Account (Change profile settings)
- Buy Credits
- My Network (my friends)
- Add Friend
- Cell phone
- (Keyword) Search
- Free Shipping
- Exclusive Deal
- Complicated designs that try to fit a lot into a little.
- Background patterns that are distracting to the eye and take away from the icons such as swirls, checkers, etc.
- Pixel based artwork.
- Random color selections. Please use your color theory and apply colorsthat work well together in each icon and on a larger scale with theentire icon set.
