Style and Concept
What icon or button design styles do you like?
We currently use the Fugue icon set (http://p.yusukekamiyamane.com/) for some things in the UI, and have some custom icons for types of scientific data. The site design is minimalist, so not too flashy or 3D. Also, see alpha version of the site up at http://synapse.sagebase.org. For example, see http://synapse.sagebase.org/#Synapse:163... which shows some of our existing custom icons. The white image on colored background could work well for hte new icons we need.
What colors do you want to see in your icon or button design?
Yellows, reds, oranges, consistent with the pallet in the alpha site.
What colors do you NOT want to see in your icon or button design?
Nothing too bold, colors should be more muted than primary.
What adjectives should best describe your icon or button design?
Clean, minimal, simple, clear, professional.
What content must be included in the icon or button design?
1. Project (Active ongoing effort managed on our website) 2. Study (Packed up materials from a completed clinical study) 3. Data (Generic icon for data of unspedified format. Already have separate icons for specific data types) 4. Code 5. Analysis (sequence of steps, some sort of flowchart) 6. Step (one step in a larger Analysis) 7. Folder (generic container) 8. A generic entity/object (default to show if we extend our type system and don't have a specific icone for new type yet)
