I was inspired by Ien Harris’ creation of an icon for an application on a smart phone or other electronic device. His original blog post is here.
This is a neat piece of work that involves simplicity and minimalism, and can still convey the idea of the functionality of the application. It needs to be discernible when it’s small enough to be a tiny little icon on your smart phone, and still be recognizable from the other app icons on your little screen.
It’s perfect and makes me want to try to create some icons and program some apps myself!
