An Icon Party
I was asked to redesign a mobile app that helps users to find their way through natural remedies. Part of the design was to create an icon set that was used for the navigation as well as icons for lists to distinguish between different ingredients.
The icons are an adaptation of the items they are representing. This made finding the right icons rather easy. The difficult part was to make these detailed creatures and elements fit for a small icon. That meant to remove as many details as possible but preserving the unique form and meaning.
All icons are made with a 2px line without filling. This helps to keep the app light and makes it easy to add dark mode icons once needed. For the navigation icons I created on and off states. When the item is active, it switches from a line to a filled state.
