Icons are more than just pretty decorative graphics for sites and applications; they are little miracle workers. They summarize 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 the format or method to deploy them. On the way, it will cover choosing the right metaphor, achieving visual balance, and using SVG for scalable and lightweight distribution.
