How expandrive started their button or icon journey

Summary

We're looking for a small color icon [16x16, 32x32] that also performs well in grayscale, to be used as the primary visual access point for our software

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

ExpanDrive is a small Boston based independent software company. We make the best file access client on the planet - allowing you to securely access your remote servers just like a USB Drive, over the internet - using SFTP/FTP/S3. Our user interface generally sits in the background, and is accessed by clicking an icon in the system try. Customers complain our current icon is ugly, and looks like a stapler. We'd like something better.

Wants

- Clear and obvious silhouette
- Hand tuned to look good at 16x16 and 32x32
- Hand tuned to look good in color in Windows, and Grayscale on Mac

Don't want

- Something too complex or detailed
- Icon is too obviously derivative of built-in Mac/Windows icons
- Something which uses just the letters "ED"
