Snowflake Identicons

Character Design


Hydrogen is a blockchain company that builds fin tech products. Snowflake is an identity protocol built by the Hydro team. It's designed to protect private data from identity theft on the blockchain.

The task was to create unique, visually appealing avatars tied to a user's public address. The icons are used as authentication for their blockchain identity and wallet platforms. These are not meant to replace user profiles, but as security icons, to allow the user to more easily check if an address he wants to interact with is the correct one.

I have kept the design of the Snowflakes simple and mainly used geometric shapes that reads well in large and small sizes.
