I wanted to update the UI with something easy to scan, fun and exciting. Maybe the user doesn’t have time to cook and wants to try a new restaurant on meatless Monday. HappyCow should help make those decisions. Here’s the hi-fi mockups I came up with in Sketch.
The app has four primary categories, VEGAN, VEGETARIAN, VEG-OPTIONS, and STORES+MORE. These icons are the first thing the users see when they open the app. Currently these categories have basic leaf shapes, therefore I wanted to create something more fun, and easy to understand.
Before and After
I quickly sketched out my icon ideas then transferred them to Illustrator, where I traced and vectorized the final versions. Here’s how that looks with a before and after comparison of the Vegan and Vegetarian icons.
