Hey! Hope everything is going great!
If you follow me, you know that I spent the last month and a half traveling around Thailand exploring its magnificent islands. I needed this time-off to evaluate what I’ve achieved with Icon Utopia thus far and think of where I should go with it next. I talked briefly about my Thailand trip in the previous article if you want to check it out.
So as mentioned there, I have some big plans for the blog. I decided that weekly blog posts are not enough anymore and I want to give the people who are willing to learn icon design more value. With that in mind, I started working on a bunch of exciting stuff like interviews, videos, tutorials, and so on.
And now it is time for you to step in and help me with it!
Here is the deal: I want to create an awesome, value packed from the first to the very last page “Icon Design Guide” that would contain everything you need to know to start working on your first icon set or simply to learn something new about icon design. I’ve written a good deal of blog articles about that, and I know you have learned a lot from them too considering how many positive emails I’m getting. This is fantastic and really motivating. You guys are incredible, and I don’t think I will ever stop telling you this. But also, going through your feedback I understood how extremely helpful a complete guide with all the necessary information about icon design would be. Just imagine a guide with questions answered, concerns solved, and steps of creating your first icon set described in details, all in one place!
I have spent months and months working on this massive source for everybody wanting to learn icon design from scratch. But it was not until now when I started taking it really seriously. And because I want to create only best things for you, I have a simple question to ask:
What are you struggling with?
What are the main obstacles that stop you from creating awesome icon sets? Or if you’re already creating killer icons, is there anything specific you’d like to know about iconography?
Let me know by using the contact form on Icon Utopia. Just try to avoid really technical questions, I want this guide to fit everybody’s needs regardless of the software they are using.
Let me know how I could help you get started with icon design and let’s create an amazing guide for everybody who wants to learn how to design fantastic icons. I’m really looking forward to your letters!
P.S. Oh boy! It was such a great feeling writing this article to you again after all this time. I’ve honestly missed that!
