I’m Currently working on a mail template builder project. We’re using a lot of icons and now I need to make some for our menu bar. As you can see they must represent Test, Save, Load, & Download actions. I believe I failed with my first try. Icons looking too similar, too many arrows et cetera.
I’d really appreciate an advice on how I can improve this situation.Thanks
Test/Preview – Tube / Eye / Checkmark (Solved)
Save/Save Draft – Floppy Disc (Outdated) (?)
Load/Open Draft – Single Circular Arrow / Open Folder / (?)
Download – Same (?)
My main problem is an amount of icons with arrows here. 3 is too much. I want to reduce it to 2 icons.
Just my take….
- Test = Checkmark
- Save = What you have already
- Load = A single circular arrow (yes it may seem like a refresh
icon, but it’s also often used as a load or reload icon. Given the
context of the other 3 icons, this would work well.) Another option may be the “loading” star so often seen.
- Download = What you are currently using as the load icon.
