Icon design is the art of designing a graphical symbol that represents some real or abstract motive or object. In terms of graphic designing, an icon often represents your company’s name. It can be for the purpose of App Icon or Desktop Icon or to be used in posters and hoardings.
Icon designs can be as simple as a flat two-dimensional drawing or a black silhouette, or it can be as complex as presenting a combination of graphic design elements such as one or more linear and radial colour, gradients, shades, and three-dimensional perspective effects.
Modern icons often have a maximum size of 1024 by 1024 pixels. The everyday challenge of icon designing is to create an image that is communicative, beautiful, and understandable at the same time. Also the icon should retain its identity in every size from the maximum resolution down to the minimum resolution of 16 by 16 pixels. One of the most common and important examples of this are Application Icons, used to represent an app on Mac, Windows, Linux, or Mobile platforms. Other common uses of icons include favicons, toolbar icons, and icons for buttons or controls.
