The Streamline team focuses on creating recognizable and consistent icons by evaluating their meaning, construction guidelines, and context of use. Recognizability is important to ensure that the icon conveys a clear message and can be understood by people from different cultures. Consistency involves comparing the icon to others in the set to determine if it follows the same construction guidelines, looks visually balanced, and shares the same stylistic features. Legibility is evaluated based on the icon's use and context in which it is applied.
The Streamline team is consistently crafting new icons and refining old ones to guarantee recognition, consistency, and legibility.
To evaluate an icon, it is important to consider its meaning, construction guidelines, and context of use. The icon should convey a clear message and be easily understood by users. It should also follow the same construction guidelines as other icons in the set, be visually balanced, and share the same stylistic features. Additionally, the icon's legibility should be evaluated in the context in which it will be used. Overall, a foolproof system for evaluating icons involves ensuring their recognizability, consistency, and legibility.
These are the criteria we'll have to consider to evaluate it: Does the icon follow the same construction guidelines as the rest? Does it look visually balanced compared to them? Does it share the same stylistic features?
