Eons ago, Major Robot Interactive, who I worked with on the Big Mapple project, hired me to design a graphic robot icon mascot. After an initial cartoonish sketch phase that nearly ended in tears, a new direction was decided on. These were the initial choices I sent for review.
Appealing elements were pointed out, so I offered them another round with similar attributes.
And this was the final choice, which you can see in use on Major Robot’s site. I enjoy that they used the robot’s hand for the User Experience Design icon.
