The specific challenge here was designing for a touchscreen monitor. The icon needs to be large enough to interact with a finger but small enough to serve as part of a greater interface. Since they’re viewed in close proximity, detail is critical for touchscreen icons.
Working hand-in-hand with HP, we identified the steps involved in the set-up and exploration of new HP computers then set out to create icons that would guide users through their new computers. Each icon started as a sketch and then was meticulously designed to get the kind of detail needed for a desktop and touchscreen device.

Once the icons were integrated with motion graphics and 3D rendering, the project came to life. Watch the Video
