Project Description

For the a new menu icon was needed for a new game. The new game was a quiz. I started with making a couple of iterations. Soon I came to the conclusion that people didn’t recognize that these icons should represent a quiz. Therefore I started looking for inspiration online and came up with the design of a silhouette with question marks on it. After some final alterations to the question marks this became the final design for the icon of the quiz.

From this I learned that an icon needs to be a clear representation of what you want to tell. Especially if the icon will not be supported by text. By asking other people what they think the icon would mean you get a better understanding of which designs are suitable.
