During my six month internship at The Artificial I created a 100+ icon set for the company's former kickstarter project to [icon]. To [icon] is a website that consists of different series of icons that can be downloaded free of charge for either personal or professional use.
What started as proces of research, trial and error resulted in my very own set of icons. It was a long but highly rewarding process which led to a collection of 108 icons under the name of 'dashing.'
As a child I grew up folding various origami objects. The instructions on how to make any object consisted of lines and dashes. Also watching my sister cut patterns and sew clothing consisted of fabric with chalked dashed lines. To me the symbol of dashed lines stand for creation and for the making of something new.
A set of rules was established to ensure that the icons would really be a collection with consistency throughout. Examples of rules are the spacing between the dashes and the sizes for squares or circles.
Each icon has at least been triple checked by two of my colleagues and then tweaked by myself until it reached absolute perfection and was in unison with the other icons and the established set of rules. The icons have been made on a 32px by 32px grid.
