You are invited to design an icon set for Lykke presentations, marketing materials, applications, and internal needs. The contest will be organized in two stages. On the first stage, you will be invited to create five icons. Four winners of the stage 1 will participate in the stage 2, and will get cash prizes as well. On the second stage, you will be invited to create 28 icons, with payment guaranteed. The winner will have $250, and three other participants will get $100 each as a reward.

About Lykke:

Lykke builds a global marketplace for all asset classes and financial instruments. Our marketplace will use the distributed ledger technology pioneered by Bitcoin to offer immediate settlement and direct ownership.

List of icons to be developed on the first stage:

  1. Blockchain
  2. Client
  3. Database
  4. Cloud
  5. Personal information


Principles that should be observed when building icons:

  • The icon shall consist of two parts, a graphite  and a colored gradient fill. The margin between them shall be 4px
  • The shape of the icon shall aim for simple shapes (square, circle, rectangle, diamond).
  • Use only one color in the icon.
  • Use only gradients from the Lykke palette. We do not recommend to change the angle of the gradient.
  • Ideally, the color shall match the metaphor of the icon. If it is a passport - use red, if it is the Earth - use blue or green.
  • The details - the better. One icon shall be one shape easily taken by the eye.
  • Minimum of "connecting" elements.
  • Graphite lines shall be closed if possible.
  • Use only the icons inside the gradient fill.
  • The contour (white or graphite) shall have a round cap and round corners. The contour shall be placed in the center (not inside or outside).
  • The fill inside the icon shall have a 1px fillet of angles.
  • The icons shall be balanced by mass.

Technical requirements: 

The lines shall remain the lines, not the fill. Do not use the options Object > Path > Outline Stroke in Adobe Illustrator and Layer > Convert to Outlines in Sketch.

The size of each icon shall be 80x80px.

Format: .ai or .sketch using the templates provided.

The icons shall be in vector format for subsequent resizing. The PNG, JPEG, or PSD icons will not be included in the voting.
