Status Icons

Designed a set of icons for an internal status monitoring app


August 2011


  • Photoshop
  • Vector shapes
  • Dynamic gradients
  • Layer styles


I designed a set of icons (and background) that allowed users of all technical levels to easily monitor and act upon the status of system functions. Although the client asked to remain anonymous, quick and easy recognition was imperative from the intial request.

Some themes and inspiration behind the design were road signs, something the client was familiar with. The icons also had to be attractive and a special request was to ensure ideal recognizability for tritanopia, in which case the icons appear blue, pink, and red.
