For this new release for iPad, I was assigned to create a few new icons for the basic interface and sheep library, and icons demonstrating the hand motions that control the app. The hand motions were particularly interesting to design: there are so many hand-shaped icons out there these days, I wanted to make sure these were unique and easier to understand than the common hand icons you see everywhere.

I love working with the Electric Sheep project – after designing fractal animations for the project for many years, I was recruited as a graphic designer. Electric Sheep has exhibited in art galleries and festivals around the world, as well as the ambient space on your computer or device screen – I can’t wait to see where the project goes next!
I love designing icons – it is such a fun and fascinating challenge to create the tiny pictures that help people communicate with machines.
