Design Inspiration (Top 5 Icon Designs)

Another dose of design inspiration, this week we will be featuring some awesome icon design! 

Icon design seems like one of the easier options when it comes to graphic design, but the truth is boiling something down to its purest & trying to explain and identify whatever it is your trying to portray in such a small object is actually allot harder than allot of people would think, telling the same story with the same feeling through every icon in a set is an art & only the best designers can execute this. 


So here we go the top 5 Icon designs (not in any kind of order)

Number 1 is Ryan Putman with a stunning set of illustrated icons, really beautiful 


Number 2 is done by MUTI a design agency based in cape town, really holds that awesome vintage feel to it.

Number 3 is created by Kamil Khadeyev stunning work as usual nailing down the realism on this specific set of icons, would look super in most situations!!

Number 4 is one of my favourite set of social icons i have ever seen, completely different to the competition & still very recognisable. Awesome work. Created by Szende Brassai.

Number 5 has also been taken by the extremely talented Szende Brassai another set of stunning city icons.

There you have it, a little dose of design inspiration to get your creative juices flowing & push you on to create something awesome. 


Stay tuned for a special set of icons I will be creating for my home county, Cornwall, a creative exploration into some of the stunning Cornish towns & villages scattered across this incredible place i call home.
