Hey guys! I'm one of the newer people here at YOOtheme and still kind of learning, how things are done. It probably always looks like we just pop out new releases like that, but I was actually really impressed with how much effort and attention to detail is put into everything we do. So after three weeks, I just finished my first ever icon, hurraayy!
We decided to make a set of buildings icons, as these would work really well for any e-commerce or business site. The first step is to gather some thoughts and ideas. What do we want to include? What is important to us for this particular icon set? Then we start by making first sketches. Everyone has their own approach to this. I myself always need paper and a pencil to capture my ideas. As we were several people working on this set, it was important to maintain a consistent style for all the icons. Then we would merge the best concepts into a final sketch as a blueprint for the vector illustration.
