Together with the awesome folks at Oak Studios, Brooklyn NY, we released a new friendly and special kind of symbol font with precise pixel-fitting and a warm, organic finish - she goes by the name of SS Pika. Designed to make your graphic and interface designs look inviting and charming. The chunky glyphs in this set are incredibly consistent and sharp, but not severe. It neither conforms rigidly to the underlying grid nor completely abandons it but uses it rationally, resulting in distinctive gently curved contours.

Yes we can! We make icons and more... this one for example. Illustrations are great for identity design systems. Intriguing, instrumental and instantly recognizable. Don't tell your story, illustrate it or be boring.

 

I'm the founder of Dutch Icon and I'm not your average icon designer. Just a design nerd with years of design experience including corporate identities, packages, web design, illustrations and yes icons. An eye for design, I guess, mixed with just enough perfectionism and a solid foundation established at art academy. Of course I also have a fine team supporting me. We can help you!

All this is available for iPhones, iPads and soon in all iMacs and Mac Book Pros. With all this exciting and promising new technology, we still see poor quality or poorly used icons all too often. It might feel like pixel perfect design is over but it's not quite over yet!
