I tried a Lipocyte and a Phagocyte as initial cells, and I liked the rounder look created by using the Lipocyte.

First, I just looked for a color combination I liked for an icon. Perhaps it's too similar to the one you're already using.

Liking those two colors individually for icon colors, I then made one with a different Flagellocyte color and one with a different Phagocyte color (and small Flaglleocyte adjustment).

I tended to like the Flagellocyte to be darker than the Phagocyte, and I tended to like primary and secondary colors typical of many logos. So, for something slightly different, I tried a lighter Flagellocyte and colors less typical in logos.

And, actually, a Glueocyte head just looks hairy and a bit goofy rather than dynamic and striking ;)

If you've never seen one, you can't tell what a crawler is by looking at an image. You can't easily tell what it's doing, or that it's doing anything, or that it's moving. The Flagellocyte is key.

Agree, the Flagellocyte depicts the concept swimming. That's dynamic suggesting action. A Crawler only displays movement when it's actually moving which is hard to visualize on a still picture ;-)

Not sure I understand what you mean? Is it related to this topic from 2 years ago?
