Vector calculator icon

Creating full icon sets is fun, but it’s a heck of a lot of work! It’s even more work to keep a picky client happy, which usually results in endless rounds of iterations and alternate explorations before getting to the final design. It’s all good though – endless iteration usually means a lot of leftover graphics that I can use for other projects, which can be huge timesavers down the road.

But what happens when I never use one of those leftovers for anything? That’s exactly what happened with this vector calculator icon. It was part of a larger set with a very client-specific flat design language, which is a bit too cartoony for much of the work that I do. I’m not much of a whimsical designer, so the chances of me using this calculator for anything at all is slim to none.

You should also know that I’ve got a few more leftover icons from this set that I’ll be uploading over the coming weeks. They are all rendered in this same pseudo-flat style with muted colors and soft gradients, and you can strip all that stuff out and create your own style without much effort. Look for those soon!
