Icon Design

Enhance software user experiences with custom designed icons.

Icons are both aesthetic and effective visual cues, which work together as a system to enhance functionality. Our custom designed icon sets creatively blend well-understood metaphors and accepted standards to express the purpose and function of the controls in your software solution.

BUILD UNDERSTANDING

We develop professional icon systems that are appropriate to your user’s knowledge and mental models. Respecting common industry standards and your business requirements, Akendi’s visual designers bring a unique combination of creativity, simplicity and utility to your application.

INTEGRATE DISTINCTIVE DESIGN

We design icons that are distinct from each other yet still work together as a system. This holistic approach ensures your icons integrate harmoniously with your application while supporting your brand’s personality.

where to start

We begin by talking to senior stakeholders to better understand the functionality of the tool, your brand, your business goals, user tasks and information structure.

When creating icon sets for software we often conduct a competitive analysis to examine your industry and to understand the existing systems that your customers may be familiar with.

TIMING
The typical duration of icon design is 3-4 weeks.

how we do it

We typically develop several design concepts to express an iconic language that fits well with your product and your brand.

Once agreement is established on a creative direction, we create the icon set as well as the various outputs that may be needed. This is follows by reviews and adjustments where appropriate.
