BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm a UX design consultant. I help both large firms and startups connect with their customers and design digital products that drive business growth.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Xicons Studio?

I needed to develop a custom icon system for my client’s mobile app MVP.

What were your goals for this project?

I wanted to create a usable, consistent, and beautiful custom icon system.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I knew Carlotta (Founder, Xicons) before I started this project, and I'd used their free icon packs on other projects, so they were the obvious choice.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

They worked through a clearly defined process of discovery, ideation and sketching, creation and iteration, usability testing, and QA and delivery. We began by discussing our business goals, visual style needs, technical requirements, users’ needs, deadlines, and budget. Then, they produced paper sketches and digital concepts for us to evaluate. Several iterations of design followed where Xicons integrated our feedback and delivered a final preview for each symbol. After some quick usability tests with real customers, they did final QA and handed everything over.

What was the team composition?

I worked with Carlotta.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Xicons’ icons were perfectly tailored to my client’s business goals. They understood the audience clearly.  

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

They broke the project down into milestones and provided weekly text updates.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their commitment to delivering a solution appropriate for my client and their audience was outstanding.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, not that I saw. They have the opportunity to grow into a much larger design firm.
