Icons

Concepts. Design. Production.

Allovus knows icons. Our Studio icon team has years of experience and know-how in icon design and production. We have created thousands of icons in a variety of styles for a multitude of platforms. From concept and design to production support, we work with our partners to create solutions that meet and exceed requirements.

For something that seems so simple, the icon is a complex element, and we take it seriously. For those of you curious about our approach, read on to learn more.

Workflow

Through our established production process and our ability to scale teams from large to small, we’ll deliver high quality icons that meet and exceed all your requirements.

Globalization

An icon is a graphic symbol that represents an app, file, web page, function, or command. Depending on the product/application, icons require metaphors that are globally recognized and not regionally specific.

Style

Icons carry a lot of weight, as they are intended to communicate meaning as well as reinforce your brand. We can carry an existing brand forward or help to establish a unique style.

Creation
