The 'Icon Design Process' Roadshow

07 Jul 2014

For the rest of 2014, I shall be taking my talk “The Icon Design Process” to America, UK and Germany before I retire it and move on! ;)

Icons are more than just pretty decorative graphics for sites and applications, they are little miracle workers. They summarise and explain actions, provide direction, offer feedback and even break through language barriers. Whether you design icons yourself or just need to be able to work with them, this session will take you through the whole process of designing and deploying resolution independent icons—from the initial brief, to choosing format or method to deploy them. On the way it will cover choosing the right metaphor, achieving visual balance, and using techniques such as icon fonts and SVG for scalable and lightweight distribution

You can hear this talk at the following conferences:

An Event Apart Chicago – 25-26th August
Web Expo Guildford – 26th September
Beyond Tellerrand Berlin – 3rd-5th November

If you’re coming to one of these events, please come and say Hi!
