Practicing our craft
Kata (方) is a honing exercise. Through repetition, the practice refines the basic skills necessary for mastery of a craft. We sought to better ourselves by creating sets of icons, not simply drawing things, but also exploring metaphors for visual communication. This simple exercise of exploration turned into a passion for quality and fun, a passion we thought was worth sharing.
Crafting to pixel perfection
Every icon is snapped to either a 32- or 64-pixel grid, making them perfect for digital displays. The series have traditional interface icons like save, share, and edit, as well as icons with more personality. So far, to [icon] has ten different series, with two more on the way.
Experimenting with new processes
We started with rough sketches showing layout, and then moved straight into code. Rather than producing comps of all screens using Photoshop or Illustrator, we styled the code-based "wireframes" using CSS.
