Hi, we are developing a website that looks at cycling safety issues and overlays them on the map. The website is in development and have tried some map icons ourselves and are still not happy with our own ideas. And so we are reaching out to the freelancer community with this competition to generate some ideas for us. We look forward to seeing your creative ideas!
There are currently only three safety icon types that apear on the map:
1) Accident/incident - A cycling accident or incident
2) Hazard - A road hazard or other hazard that cyclists should avoid
3) Advice / warning - Other advice (like road works) that is useful safety / nuisance information
We also assign a severity score to these, and so the icons could be also graduated by colour to represent the severity (5 levels plus unknown).
These icons should also have a map shadow image with transarency. Would like them to be "standing up" like a pin on the map.
There are also cycling friendly business icons on the map. These include:
5) bike shops,
6) bike storage,
7) facilities and
These icons could be in a different style and smaller since we don't want to clutter the map. These sit in the background. Can be all the same colour. May or may not have a shadow based on your design and whether these sit flat on the map or stand up.
So 8 icons in total. Perhaps scope for some colour graduations on the first 3 if you wish to pusue this, plus one or two shadows.
- Icons need to work well on a map together. Note that there could be places where icons overlap in clusters etc. They may have reduced opacity.
- Icons 1-3 need to have a "point" that shows the exact map location when draging etc. Others this is not critical.
- High quality, sharp.
- Final contest deliverable is the full set of icons in vector format - SVG plus PNG versions, royalty free.
We've attached a document that shows out current icons, ideas and colours for your reference.
Happy designing and enjoy!
