Now I am working as a writer because writing is my passion, I like to write on many topics such as this topic, there was also a time when I want to become a designer and I also get the training about designing. That’s why I have also experience about the designing and today I’ve selected this topic to share my point of views.
As I have told in all the designing related posts that designing has lots of departments and icon designing is also one of them icon is a small object and playing a big role for your designs. Because if we talk about the web page design icon can also play an important role and similarly graphics designers are also use icons for their designs. Being a creative designers one should also have a complete know how about icon if you haven’t you just need to read the below information which is totally about creative icons design. Before you get started the below part of this article I’d like to say that what I am going to present below, below you can see how designers should maintain in their mind power during the icon designing and how icon can play important role.
Size of your Icons
It’s the first thing before you get started that you need to make sure about the size of your icon, as I also have know how about designing every object look better and attractive in a reasonable size. Just like all fields of designing you need to select the suitable size and resolution of your icons, there are also many expected sizes like 16 x 16 px, 24 x 24 px, 32 x 32 px , 48 x 48 px, 64 x 64 px, 96 x 96 px, 128 x 128 px, 256 x 256 px, 512 x 512 px. It’s up to you that which is appropriate resolution for your icon and as my personal view icon is always looking fine in the square form. And keep in mind that you have no need to mention the unnecessary elements in the icon because your size will look like unusual.
The Appearance of your Icon
It’s the main thing that makes your design immortal in the eyes of others, before you get started your work on icon design keep in mind that what you are going to design. If we look towards many well known icons, like, Android, Apple, Internet Explorer and YouTube all the icons are creative and simple and also put up with a world famous brands. Same like that your icon design should also present something interesting like other icons, for this purpose you can do the brain storming and research work for the good appearance of your icon. By reason of a comprehensive research work about the icons you can observe the other’s work on the subject matter and get the inspiration in this way you can build a creative look of your Icon.
Use Vector Format for your Icon
When you are designing an icon you should keep it as a Vector because it’s a kind of vector based designing that usually we design in the CorelDraw. So, with vector software packages for example Adobe Illustrator, every shape, gradient and stroke that makes up the icon can be tweaked and changed at any point, unlike a pixel based design that is also knows as raster based designs that needs redrawing when changes are made. But most of the designers are also of the view that an icon shouldn’t be a Vector because they thought that the vector graphics aren’t always the most excellent loom for icon designers. It’s up to you because at this time you are designing the icon use any of the format that is appropriate for the icon.
Do not Mention A Specific Culture
While designing the icon you should use a creative and eye catching color combination because, your icon shouldn’t point out any specific traditions and culture. If you’ll see the icon of My Computer on your PC it’s a good example of simplicity and creativity and it’s also no representing any specific traditions and culture it just stand for to present you what’s in your PC as its name. Same like that you should also do your effort. Might be a client give you a good deal to see your icons that’s why just try to bring internationalism in your design. It’s also not good that you mention the too many elements in a single icon because like this your design will look like odd and strange.
So, in the end we can say that icon designing isn’t hard as many designers thought about this we just need to focus that how is it Possible. To read the above tips and tricks now it’s not a big deal f for you. If you’ll read the above detail you’ll see in your mind’s eye that it’s like a blessing in disguise to design icon.
