45 Case study New Skype emoticons With millions of users worldwide, Skype Chat’s emoticons are very widely recognised. Originally designed by Priidu Zilmer when he joined the Skype visual design team in 2004, Hicksdesign and animator Julian Frost were commissioned to update the emoticon set in 2011, and create multiple sizes. The original emoticons only existed as 19×19px and, while they had transparent backgrounds, the edges were aliased. An odd-numbered grid can allow you to centre elements better (see chapter 5), but the decision was taken to start at 20px to allow more straightforward scaling to 30, 40, 60 and 80px sizes, as well as design some new (hidden) icons.
Not too many tools initially, but it worked really well. You also designed the Apple Command icon that is now an accepted convention. How did you come up with a symbol for such an abstract concept? ““ I leafed through a book of symbols, and came across a similar cloverleaf, which was identified as an image used on signs in Swedish campgrounds to mean ‘interesting feature’. This seemed appropriate, and would lend itself to being recreated in a limited number of pixels, plus fit well on a squarish key cap.
Maxwell Hoffmann, ENLASO When gathering feedback on the iterations, one area of common ground that was discovered was the combination of yellow or orange and black being associated with traffic signs. This combination ended up being used for the fat icon. While red did mean danger in the majority of the 109 countries, it was used for protein to be consistent with food pyramids, and so was a nutritional standard. As the icons are never meant to be used individually, the consensus was that the negative connotation of the colour was reduced when in the company of other icons.
