I'd like an icon that signifies both "search" and "syndication."
Search seems to be typically represented with a magnifying glass. And nothing says "feed' better than the radiating waves on the bright orange background.
So here's my attempt at an icon. Made possible in large part thanks to the vector graphics that Matt Brett put together over at Feed Icons.
Remember, this isn't at all final.
So what do people think? Does this icon scream "search syndication"? Or is it just awkardly orange?
Honest comments only, please. No being nice just because you don't want to hurt my feelings.
Update: Hmm. That doesn't look quite right.
If you want to play around with the theme, here is the SVG file... Please let me know when you've come up with something.
Update 2: Taking Alex's good point into account, what if the icon simply represented "search"? The syndicated nature of that search could be implied by association with color and context.
