Radio, a design firm based in Cape Town, South Africa, recently designed 45 icons for personal money management website 22 Seven, which is still in beta but using some of the icons on their landing page. Along with designing logos, designing icons is one of the trickiest tasks a designer faces. You have to communicate clearly in a tiny space. Radio manages to use a limited color palette of translucent red, green blue and yellow and simple shapes to illustrate all the different budget categories you might want to track online like health and medical, pets and insurance.
