A new icon system for Tiki


Work in progress – page under construction...!

Introduction

The problem


No system, no visual identity

Icons used by Tiki don't follow a system. Most of the icons are taken from other applications (PHPBB, Windows interface etc). There are many completely different icon styles in Tiki, with no visual identity – a big "icon carnival"...

Some icons are repeated, some being used to represent things different than what they were designed for, some icons are really difficult to understand etc.

(reminder to myself: post some examples here to illustrate these issues...)

A new icon system


I decided to design a complete icon system for Tiki, and started by making a list of all icons used. I think the list I have contains the most important ones, but i'm aware that some are still missing and that lots of new ones can be added.

I try to explain my approach for designing the new icons below:

  • rational icon grammar
  • bi-dimensional, simbolic
  • diagrammatic rather than "pseudo 3d"
  • clear and silent rather than confusing and loud
  • simple forms, multiple resolutions
  • monochrome icons + colorization
  • integration with different color schemes and bakgrounds
  • standard sizes
  • icons (identification) x buttons (action)
