When someone decides to start a business there are a number of desires or dreams that motivate them. I've identified some of these desires and I want to have them represented by a family of related icons.
There are 12 icons/images in total. In the first instance they won't be used as buttons but as images representing the relevant topic.
I'm looking for simple and elegant designs. They need to work together and stand alone.
I've suggested some ideas but they are not set in stone. You need to be creative and each image needs to resonate with the topic.
Here are the 12 topics :-
1. Being your own boss/ having your own business.
Suggestion - Image of a shop OPEN for Business perhaps the shop name "my business"
Text underneath - "own boss"
2. Having a great idea that might make money.
Suggestion - Image of the normal "idea lightbulb" using the £ sign as a filament.
