Floating Heater Room

No doubt, more than three attributes make up effective icon design, but the three elaborated below are a good place to start. For the sake of relative brevity, we have focused on what we consider to be the three main attributes.

Icons that are well designed exhibit a methodical and deliberate approach to the three major attributes that make up any icon design: form, aesthetic unity and recognition. When designing a new icon set, consider each of these attributes in an iterative approach, starting with the general (form) and proceeding to the specific (recognizability). Even if you’re creating a single icon, these three attributes are still implied and can be extrapolated from a single design.

Form is the underlying structure of an icon, or how it is made. If you ignore the details of an icon and draw a line around the major shapes, do they form a square, a circle, a horizontal or vertical rectangle, a triangle or a more organic shape.

Continuation guides our eye through each row, grouping them together and communicating to us that they are related products. Continuation is further enhanced by all of the shoes pointing in the same direction, encouraging movement from left to right. By the way, I should add that many of the principles I’ve discussed in previous articles are also at work here. Continuation is often aided by similarity and proximity, and, in this example, the principles help to align things by grouping alike items close together, to form a relationship.

Modern Living Room

A road stretching into the distance. Stairs climbing up a tall hill. A river winding through a city. Every day we experience similar scenes that lead our eyes through them, without even realizing it. 

Continuation dictates how we interpret direction and movement through a composition. Our mind chooses the path of least resistance, perceiving lines as continuing along their established direction. In the examples below, our eye follows the less abrupt path, following the straight line or the curved path through the compositions on the left, more so than the jarring paths on the right. We tend to follow continuous, uninterrupted movement, following elements that are aligned in straight lines or curves. We perceive these aligned elements as related groupings more so than we do elements in lines and curves that are unaligned. This is the principle of continuation.
