I thought I would have a look on the internet to see what type of speedometer are already out there. This one is really simple and eye-catching.
The one is amazing because it looks so real. It looks like a photograph but it’s actually a vector.
Since my icon is going to be tiny I decided to design something really simple. In illustrator I used the pen tool and the rotate tool to make a really simple image.
Is your design clear and easy to understand?
I tried to make it really simple so that people would be able to see what it is by not including a lot of colour or detail.
How might others view it? How could it be mis-read?
It could be misread as a general dial and not a speedometer. Dials are used for many purposes which could be confusing.
Does it look appropriate or does it refer to other meanings?
I think it does look appropriate but it could refer to any type of dial.
