If you build your object based icons smart, you don't have to do that. Also, you can't do pixel work on an SVG icon anyway. The picture I posted had pixel work done at 16x16 size, but the one below doesn't. Further, you probably see the large icon first, and can connect the symbol to the small one, and part of my reason for choosing strong colors was to make the different parts stand out at the small size as well.
Also, as several have pointed out, some read ChaosFish' icon as BoxDos. I switched my layout. Why? Because although we in the west read from left to right, we don't start in the middle of a page. We start from the top.
Yes I know you can't to pixel work in .svg format, I meant after exporting to windows .ico format.
I think that in european culture tendency to read from left to right is stronger than from top to bottom, so most would prefer ChaoFix layout. I guess that you rotated your icon a bit so it would be more natural to read (both are kind of left to right now). Also when looking at your very first attempt I noticed that letters had no gradient, just plane colors. I think that simple version was kind of nicer.
other icons made in a hurry up... 😀
Awesome, especially the first one. Could you post your work as pngs (best if with transparent background) rather than jpgs? Jpg compression kills colors, I think that is why that BoX writing is so faded.
I try to imagine how it would look if you weren't in a hurry... 😀
