Design sprint methodology.
Due to the limited time allowance for this project, sprint methodology was the best option to ensure a speedy process with a great outcome.
After I spent two days designing the first round, I brought the team together to discuss and test the project.
Together, we discovered what was and wasn’t working which provided direction for the next round of design.
The feedback from the team discussion was that the icons were nice and clear, and there was a great following to the unison design system.
However, they did veer a little from the iconography. The next step was to simplify them to align them more with the unison design system icons.
In the process of designing the icons, I followed the Material Icon Design Principle.
- Following the 8px grid rule
According to this, and the need for large icons as per the design brief, I created the icons to be as follows:
- Line Width: 4px.
This resulted in 6 new large icons being added to the unison design system. These were the first large icons to be created.
