The word for today is umbrella. This should be a really simple icon to create, however I'm going to make sure that my design consists of perfect degrees - so for example this design below uses only full semi-circles. The design is successful, however I think the stem of the umbrella is too big and isn't in balance with the rest of the design.
I then made the handle of the umbrella smaller so that it would be more balanced. I made sure that the handle line up perfectly with the point of the umbrella.
I then added colour to the logo design so that I could get an idea of how the icon would look when used.
