Aumlette created six great icons and was a pleasure to work with - very open to ideas yet very creative with coming up with some great ideas of her own.
How Susan Litton started their button or icon journey
I'm a mental health professional who's also had some training in web design/development. The current project is for an online billing practice management application for mental health therapists that I'm developing. So far, I've done all the graphics myself (plus some free icons) but I'm not happy with my "client". If I find a designer's work that I fall in love with, I might be persuaded to change out more (or all) of the rest of the icons on the site - as well as the logo. But right now, I'm just getting my feet wet with this first contest for a set of "client" icons to see how it goes.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Mental health professionals, i.e., psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, life coaches, pastoral counselors, social workers, etc. The feel I'm going for is open, approachable (i.e., not stuffy or overly formal), appealing.
What I need is a genderless, raceless, ageless icon to represent a client that can be used in a variety of different "poses". Main icons on the site are 32x32 and will have a transparent background. I also need 30x22 size on a black background for forms. I'll attach the left nav and also some icons from forms, showing what I'm using now. A winning entry might be similar to what I have or very different. I just know that what I have now isn't very professional looking and needs spiffing up.
The specific icons/buttons I need are for:
Add Client Payment
Add Client Family Member
I'll also attach a screenshot of the main page of the app to give you a sense of the overall look and feel.
