Symbol Design

I’m looking at flat vector style illustrations for the symbols, because it’s a clear, clean style and makes the symbols easy to distinguish. I’m also looking at making them hexagon instead of circular, as this makes the game different from all the other hundreds of bubble games out there and I think they’ll fit nicely into each other, like a hive.

I considered for a while attempting to make the symbol match the shape of the kanji it represents as much as possible in order to heighten the connection in the user’s brain, but I found to do that is quite difficult and it is probably better to have a symbol whose meaning is clear rather than something that may not be so obvious but fits the shape of the kanji it represents.
