Small Updates

I’m about to close week 4 of the “One icon a day” challenge, sometimes it’s fun, sometimes it’s tough, but I’m glad I started this project. Adding some spice to the mix I also started recording what I do, mistakes and brain farts included. You can find the videos in this Youtube playlist.

Designing an Icon a Day: Week 1

Week 1 over for this challenge. So far so good, the commitment required seems bearable, and to be honest it’s a great way to take the mind off the other stuff. I’m still not sure about the general style of the icons though. So far I opted for large icons, with a fair amount of details, outlined with two possible stroke widths (4px and 2px). I’m not sure about this, they might look good on a landing page or a dashboard, but they’ll probably look off on a smaller scale in an app.
I’m probably going to switch style the next month or further up down the road, but for now, they’ll do.

Until next time

Designing an Icon a Day

“This year is the year. The year when I actually take my new year’s resolution to its completion”. That’s what I tell myself every year. Last year I started a new resolution: post an article a month on this blog. Well… that went great as you can see, although it was a nice experience being on the first page of Hacker News for a brief period.
