With Adobe Illustrator, you can whip up a simple graphic to use as an icon in app designs, web pages, printed pieces, and more.

Smartphone displays “What Makes U Lucky?” at the top with lucky icons such as 4-leaf clover and wishbone at the bottom.

Draw a circle. Look for magenta crosshairs while dragging out the shape to make it perfectly round.

The Ellipse tool displays magenta crosshairs indicating a perfectly round circle.

Double-click the Scale tool. We made a smaller copy of the original circle to create a donut shape.

The Scale tool is used to copy and resize the original circle.

Select each circle and apply a different fill color.

The fill tool is used to color the outer circle green, and the inner circle yellow-green.

Select both circles and from the Effects menu, experiment with Pucker & Bloat. You’ll find you can make diverse icons based on your setting.

The circles are transformed into four-point stars and four-leaf clovers using Pucker & Bloat in the Distort & Transform menu.

Choose an effect you like; we’re making a clover.

Pucker & Bloat is used to adjust the points on a four-leaf clover.

We added a stem with the Arc tool and adjusted the color and stroke. (Click Stroke in the Properties panel to access more options.)

A stem is added to the clover using the Arc tool with no fill and a green stroke.

Icons are everywhere these days. Now you’re ready to create an entire set — for holidays, a business, or any other theme.
