Hey guys, looking for some feedback here. I've been going crazy trying to get these mini icons looking good but its been a total mission in a half.
Do you think the snips and a guides icons (top right) look ok?
Very tricky with so few pixels!

The guides one seems a little harder to make out... Perhaps try grey "content boxes" and keep the grid columns blue like you have it? That way it's not blue on blue?
But looking nice =)
Edit: At closer look perhaps it is grey? But the blue columns are playing tricks on me, so maybe a different shade of grey so it stands out more instead of blends?
@Andy Baltes I tried that, it really clashed.
@Norm Yeah, I wasn't sure how it would look just an idea. So moving on... have you tried removed the "content boxes" and just having a columns? Or does that look not descriptive enough?
Perhaps less columns on that little one? :)
Yeah, maybe try fewer columns?
wow wow wow
If it's a guide icon maybe it should just be guides and no visible boxes. Your icon work looks great but perhaps that particular one doesn't need as much detail. Very attractive work so far :)
I'm on the fewer columns team, too.
So less columns. I tried 1px columns but they make you go cross eyed, at least they did to me. Maybe I'll nudge it down to 3 columns.
Would going monochromatic like the layout icons on the left help? Why such high fidelity there? IDK maybe simple is better in this case.
Camera icon feels too short, comparing to the rest on that row… The plus sign makes the first icon slightly out of balance, in my opinion, but that's nitpicking :)
What if you got rid of the grey boxes in the guides? I think it's pretty standard to see just guides on a blank document when starting off.
The scissors look fine. For the guides, you might try a bit of pink instead. Something along these lines. http://d.pr/i/zzz3
Thanks for all the feedback guys, really appreciate it!
@Michael Sigler that looks pretty decent
You are killing me here !!! I want it :-)
@Norm Glad it helped. :)
I would make them in one single color... and fewer columns... I can't wait to see it in action...
As far as the 'guides' icon is concerned I think it would help a lot if you use that signature #4affff Adobe default guide color instead of the blue you used. It would overall add for a quicker and better read of the icon. That may clash your color scheme a bit though... Worth a try IMO. Anyways... I'm excited! Good job!
@Oleg Melnychuk I've removed the plus from the first icon, it actually made more sense to remove it. looks much better now!
I looked at the shot before reading the description, and everything made sense to me.
What's the rocket icon (underneath the Zap icon)? It looks really familiar.........
