Pearl Certification is seeking a suite of icons. This brief is for 15 icons that are currently used in Pearl's mobile app. The goal is for the icons to be fairly simple/flat while still clearly representing the concept they are standing in for. The 15 icons this brief asks for are part of a full set to be completed later of approximately 50 icons. Winning this bid does not guaranty the allocation of the remainder of the icons, but it is a strong indicator that we'd like to work together in the future.
In general, we call an energy-efficient feature of the home an "asset" and we group those "assets" into "asset categories". There are icons for asset categories, as well as for assets within those categories. We expect the individual asset icons to carry a piece of the asset category icon in which they are contained. We expect that "piece of the asset category icon" to be "color", but that is open to interpretation as long as asset icons "belong to" their asset category icon in some way.
The icons to be created are:
Heating & Cooling
Within *Building Shell* are:
Within *Heating & Cooling* are:
* (no icons that are part of this brief)
Within *Baseload* are:
* Water Heating
* Washing Machine (clothes)
* Dryer (clothes)
Within *Home Management* are:
Within "Other Assets* are:
In Summary, most of the Asset Category icons are not part of this brief, but should be considered in the asset creation (e.g. _Insulation_ and _Windows_ icons should share a theme (color?) that will be pulled together into the "Building Shell" icon in the future.)
The specific icons in this brief are:
01) Building Shell (Asset category)
02) Heating & Cooling (Asset category)
03) Baseload (Asset category)
04) Home Management (Asset category)
05) Other Assets (Asset category)
06) Insulation (asset)
07) Windows (asset)
08) Water Heater (asset)
09) Refrigerator (asset)
10) Washing Machine (asset)
11) Dryer (asset)
12) Dishwasher (asset)
13) Lighting (asset)
14) Thermostat (asset)
15) Solar (asset)
These icons may appear over a variety of backgrounds, but on top of white will be the most common use case. We are working with other designers on website redesign and have the following color pallet from that. It's important for this iconography is to mesh well with that color palette.
The icons will range in size from 480px x 480px when standing in for a photograph of the icon down to 36px x 36px (or so) when presented many-on-a-page on a mobile device.
