Icon Design Process talk at Reasons To 2017

06 Sep 2017

I’ve just got back from Reasons To conference in Brighton where I’ve had a fantastic time, meeting new peoples of the internets and talking about Icon Design again. I absolutely love Reasons To, its the kind of conference that re-energises you because it’s scope is so broad. Not just covering creativity within the web sphere, but Gaming, Music, Fashion and Advertising. If you’ve never been before, you should!

For 2017, I updated my talk on The Icon Design Process. I’ve removed all traces of the whys and wherefores of icon fonts, and providing SVG fallbacks, and beefed up the section about SVG. I also spent a long time reorganising the flow of the talk, and adding new examples and tips.

    You paint a great mural, and some idiot adds their ugly tag to the little of space you left to balance the composition.

    “The big squeeze” is the claim, but this bottle won’t squeeze any further. There’s a lot of marmite in there that’s only coming out with knife… #baddesignbulletin
