Icons Designer Master: Everaldo Coelho


It has been quite a long time since the last article about icon design and the masters behind this craft. So nothing better than a full feature post for Everaldo Colelho, an Illustrator and Designer from Brazil that has created some fantastic and really famous icons such as the incredible Crystal library for Linux. Nowadays, Everaldo runs a studio called Yellowicon with clients like Parallels, Plaxo, Symantec, O2 and many more.

My name is Everaldo Coelho. My job as an illustrator and a designer began in 97. Since then I worked with almost every company “flavors”. I did it enough times to realize that, no matter if its a big a corporation or a small the company, at the end of the day it’s all about human beings. And I really like that! In 2003 the demand of work was greater that I could handle. I hired 2 assistants and this was the beginning of the Yellow Icon, that now counts with 12 professionals.

I have a very simple base for my work: “The human being as the measure of all things”. I don’t make design for products, I make design for people.

For more information or if you want to buy some of his icons, visit Everaldo's website or the Yellowicon.
