It’s not everyday that an illustrator gets to make website icons. Icons are meant to be simple visual indicators or cues, to information that may be on your computer, on a website or even from one website to the next. Wherever icons take you though, there is no written word to the amount of experimenting and fun one can put into it.
We created customised icons for a dental clinic’s website. The concept was simple: the icons had to look warm and welcoming to break away from the standard rigid feel of a dental clinic. The clinic also has a paediatric care department, and so we went a step ahead and gave the icons a hand-illustrated style to make it more children-friendly.
We made a set of 6 icons related to the different sections of the website. The elements were first thought out and put into paper and then sketched out. They were then taken to our mother, photoshop, and polished a little. All of this was done keeping the colour scheme of the website in mind. Here is the complete icon set.
