How to: hand-crafting a Material Design icon.

Google's Material Design website is a rich resource, dedicated to functional and compelling web | app design. On the website, there is a tutorial detailing the construction of a hand-crafted paper-based Material Design icon; done so (with paper), for the purpose of creating true-to-life shading. 

The tutorial inspired me to create my own Material Design icon, based from my "pigeons and friends" repertoire of square-shaped iconic pigeons [and friends]. Here are the source images:


According to the material.io guidelines, the icon's design ought be uniform in stroke thickness, somewhat bold and simplistic.




I've got a challenge, at hand, therefore, n rendering and shaping the image that I end up choosing, for the icon, in that my illustrations are more gesturally-based and freehand, rather than designed and pixelated. I'm somewhat hoping to design with a future-forward eye to the project (if that makes any sense), in perhaps trying to keep detail that I might, for the sake of higher-resolution Dot Per Millimeter (DPM) schemes on devices that are newer and allow for on-screen zoom, for further clarity. Otherwise, I stand to compromise the decipherability of the icon for the end-user's sake of identifying and connecting to the icon. My goal, other than the material.io website's 24 x 24 pixel design basis (for system icon's), is a larger visual scope final purpose, such as placement and viewership established on mediums such as the Google Play Store and Apple's App Store.  

Here are the tools and materials that I purchsed for developing the card paper "shaded" model of the finalized icon, which I purchased from Blick Art Materials store in Pasadena.

What's there to be had of Google's latest (mid-June, 2020) SEO reorganization?

It's a significant topic news drop moment, when Google shifts their algorithms for the sake of establishing more meaningful and worthwhile results.

Here's what I've noticed, or drawn inferences on:

For example:
 Well, okay. Here's a peek at my personal account's web browsing stats, here and now, on the 25th of June, 2020 (evening):

I've been keeping up with the most-est on deez webz.

The transliterative word intensive is likened to hearing the sprighteningly sparrow's squabble at morning, or at shop.

It is considerate of recombinate features that sincile a due-to-forth unferstanding of the imperative-ness-aietivity unsecle-supposed, ... Ahem... Of the at-hand.

Its, ...

To attest to -

The at-hand :

- of feeding the sparrows, at minimum, as a stated expectation,

Some pigeons as well.

Some mentioning of the pidginHub.app[space] undersranding of what it means to be properly pidgin, in English. (With plenty of emphasis on feeding the birds, as well).

mbed'ing the Google Assistant Services (gRPC) Software Development Kit on to your Google AIY Voice Kit 2.0 Raspberry Pi Zero WH board from Target.

curl -sSL https://~`/•^°\=✓*bwip!!.com/installSlædeAeffe.™pac | sudo bash

???? {something like that, maybe}

The point is to develop the single threaded processor as a Complex Instruction Single Compute CISC processor (perhaps ad hoc usage somewhat)

to manage the various duties that the board can field and relay as far as sensory I/O and for the voltage required to push or throttle the calibration of the compressor/envelope signals in some notion of that the Google Assistant API - which is a massive undertaking of interfacing capabilities in libs and process-scripting of requiring all of Google's API repositories in being suited on-hand for the controller device as a « self-hosted » full server interface.


Important: this librarybwipp/>∆ is known as « gRPC » on GitHub or similar Unix / Linux architecture sort repository.

This sort of purpose in enterprise développent is otherwise known as a .icu (colloquially), of general Top Level Domain web app development.

Creating a Virtual Environment

The 'venv' module.

Invoking the virtual environment is important to previz the middle ground between scripting code and commands (libs / firmware flashing) in to the embedded device.

Okay, perhaps not, though. Not Python, I'd decide - for this one. I find some of the syntax in Python to be contrary to some of my efforts at understanding scripting and coding, as a musician at heart. I'm planning on going with a Java embedded platform.

Update: May 6th, 2019:


Instead of continuing to try to SSH in to the Voice Kit 2.0 as a first-off consideration, I purchased a mini-HDMI to HDMI cable at Fry's Electronics; a warehouse electronics specialty store. I was pleased to see the results when I plugged it in and booted up the system - a complete Linux operating system contained within the small Google Cardboard Voice Kit.
