Another quick update on Destiny Archive, my husband’s current personal project. He wanted some clean icons to accompany several messages/alerts. Jawa, Cad Bane and Unkar Plutt all deal in the realm of trading/scavenging/dealing and hence are great characters for this site. C3PO’s character is a know-it-all and is intended to be used for error messages.
While looking for visual reference for the icon style, I found Justas Galaburda’s wonderful site Icon Utopia. It’s a great resource for all things around icons. Go and check it out and don’t forget to download his Icon Design Guide. You’ll find some useful tips, even if you’re already a pro. It always amazes me how much knowledge is shared openly and for free. I am not a newbie myself, but I learned some tricks on both the technical and creative aspect of creating icons. With that in mind, I designed those 4 icons:
They are designed for 256×256 pixel, but because of their simplicity and reduction, they can be used a good deal smaller. The beauty of this clean and tidy style is that it looks even nice if upscaled. WordPress doesn’t allow me to upload svg files, so the images shown here are just jpgs. Here’s the bunch for download as svgs: Destiny Archive Icons. Please feel free to use them for personal or professional use, if you credit them 🙂
