Trip Wallet icon
April to May, 2013
Nic Wise came to me looking for an iOS app homescreen icon for his app Trip Wallet. Taking a look through the app, there was a very distinctive green colour and the very striking Symbolicon Line icons by Jory Raphael.
I’m a huge fan of the Symbolicons, and use them a lot. I thought a good solution would be to design a Symbolicon-style icon for the homescreen icon so it had a uniform look-and-feel with the rest of the app. This meant studying the lines, perspective and proportions of the Symbolicons to mimic in my own wallet icon.
To make the context clear, Nic suggested a map for the background of the icon. I wanted to keep the icon simple so blended the map into the green colour to work as a texture as well as making the purpose of the app more obvious.
