A consistent set of icons was needed for various drilling analysis functions within the DecisionSpace Well Engineering application. The existing icons were too complex to be easily differentiated at small sizes, and didn’t transition well between the light and dark themes that the application offered.
I worked with development teams to provide icons that had the same general concepts as the existing icons, but had a simplified layout and less elements overall. I also flattened the ribbon background, removing the gradient, which made it easier to see the icons.
Additionally, I created new icons as needed for other DecisionSpace applications – usually starting from a sketch and going through several iterations of design with the product team before settling on a final version.
DecisionSpace Well Engineering and other DecisionSpace applications had icons that were easy to differentiate, and visually represented the analysis functions they were related to.
