A few years ago, I needed an icon for something I was working on, so I opened up the noun project and started looking. I couldn’t find anything, so I set out to design my first icon. What I came up with is my blood pressure icon.
The best part isn’t the emails every few months letting me know I made $0.40 (which I did in February), it’s seeing that for a few hundred people, my representation of blood pressure is how they want to represent blood pressure.
As someone who struggles at times to consider themselves a designer, it is reaffirming to see the icon used. If you happen to use it, please let me know. I would love to see how it’s used by others.
