How Adriane Gillies started their button or icon journey

Summary

We are looking for the design of a set of 10 icons for a software package called SPARS that has been developed for the UK Learning Disability market.

SPARS stands for Support Planning Assessment Recording System and is an intuitive software application that records and manages typical information needed to maintain and support learning-disabled people within managed organisations. Information includes support plans, assessments, medical history, critical contacts, diary events and management data.

Company name

SPARS

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

The icons final size will be 65 x 65px. Either standard or freely available font. The winner will need to provide icons as a layered PNG or PSD file.

2) Logs (notes)
3) News (topical news items)
4) Person (the adult for which the record has been created)
5) Diary (as it implies)
6) Admin (administrative management)
7) Reports (as it implies)

For reference, the DSInsight logo uses Pantone colours (dark blue - Pantone 30, pale blue - Pantone 284, green - Pantone 376). Visit http://www.dsinsight.co.uk

Each button MUST have an “up” and a “down” state graphic, i.e. a different look when it is hovered over. It can be the illusion of being depressed or “lights up” (as Vista does). It needs to be very obvious that the button is being hovered over.

The buttons must fit on any window with any background and if they have rounded edges, then they must have transparency (GIF or PNG) so that the Windows Form Designer software can properly display them at execution time - blend them with the background.
