working on the nav icons for a new project. would like feedback on how well icons match their destination.
From left to right: activity feed (like instagram, all the stars and comments that follow your actions), profile (your interests, the people you follow, and all your most recent actions), latest (the latest posts from the community, in time order), front page (the top ranked posts for you right now)

Nav icons in the browns I think we're going to use in the app. Really liking the middle row - what do you think? Any more details we should add?

They look really good here. I like the chat bubble with the inner star most. Good job.
Followin you now..
The icon I like the most from a visual point happens to be the one that I think doesn't make sense from a usability point: the speech bubble with a star on it. Speech bubble is ingrained in me to make me think of comments comments comments. Activity would be better represented as something of a lifeline (kinda like dribbble). For me, activity = life pulse.
The "latest" works, but I'm curious to see what a paper + time icon might look like. Not sure about Front page icon. It's not breaking the site, but it's not immediately clear what it is either.
Purely from an aesthetic view, aside from minor nitpicky tweaks, I think the overall direction is beautiful! :)
@Riki Tanone all really good ux points...we're thinking about it.
Love all the icons, I feel like the 'front page' icon could use rounded corners on all the little squares. Doing so will allow them to fit in a bit more with all the other rounded-type icons you have.
Nice work, keep it up!
thanks @Bobby Giangeruso ⚒ we agree we should play with corners on all the icons with right angle edges like the grid and the time hands on clock.
Yup exactly, I was assuming you'd apply my feedback to all the corners! Besides that these are great icons, again nice work :)
Really clean, nice looking icons!
Was going to say what @Bobby Giangeruso ⚒ said. I think the grid squares, as well as the clock hands as you mentioned, could use a 1 or 2 px corner radius to match the round aesthetics of the other icons.
Nice, very minimal~ Love it.
hot stuff. this color is mesmerizing. cant tell if its orange or red and i love that.
fantastic. love your app. use it daily.
nice color :)
