Icons: an Allovus case study

When Allovus started 12 years ago, we were a tiny company of about 6 individuals. Our focus back then was icons.

Even though we focus heavily on UX careers today, we are still a force to be reckoned with when it comes to icon design!

The Allovus Studios team takes on projects big and small, including icon design and production. We can help clients build on their existing icon library or create an entire new icon system, all depending on their needs.

In our Icon Case Study, we delve into how we concept, design, and produce icons and icon systems.

Step 1

We begin with a kickoff meeting to find out what our clients want and need.

Step 2

Determining the style for the project is an integral step in the beginning phases—whether it’s following an existing style, modifying an existing style, or creating a completely new look. This step sets the tone for the rest of the project.

Step 3

Building on Step 2 is research and exploration. We explore concepts, imagery, and processes that optimize strategy and efficiency.

Step 4

Next is the design—this is where the project takes flight! Once the style and concepts are set, the magic of design happens.

Step 5

Review and testing is so important in determining what’s working and what isn’t.

Step 6

The final is the production and handoff of all icon assets.
