The gradient is a simple angle gradient. It is the third option on gradient tools on photoshop, however to get it spot on, you may have to tweak the color stops, rather than just using a standard two point gradient. Here is a quick comparison using the above method. As you can see, it's almost exactly the same:
I think what you are after, are some way of indicating "more, unspecific information". As @Cakey points out, not everything in the world needs an icon, so maybe some indication of editing might work fine. Luggage tags are usually used for tags as in identifying synonyms on additional information, mainly as a help for search and batch. Such as swiss ...
I would change the icon to include different types of dishes to better represent hierarchy. For example on a traditional dinner setting. So maybe the top one is a dinner plate, then a saucer, then a cup, then a spoon. Right now it just looks like a poorly aligned group of indiscriminate objects (I don't see them as plates).
If it's not a standard icon (read: thousands of apps use it) then it will be difficult to figure out no matter how well you design it. Add a label next to it, then the exact icon doesn't matter so much. I'm yet to see a non-standard icon so incredibly clear that I immediately know what it means without labels.
After getting a good hint from @joojaa, I tried to create my own script and ultimately I found a great script called MultiExporter that is made by TomByrne. This script provides variety of options to export by layers or artboards, creating a ultimate streamline for tedious work of exporting many different individual icons. You get almost every possible ...
Rather than trying to explain, I figure I'd post a visual suggestion, if the OP is stuck on using "dishes"/"Plates" as a icon theme. It kind of takes a riff of of what Ryan is promising with a stack of items - in this case "plates". I hope this helps you! Here it is: Peace.
I don't understand the icon presented in the question. Some lines, circle, flying aliens? I suggest not to use "folder"-like icon - no matter what you will do, it probably will be not original and not beautiful as you like. IMHO you should find some "symbol" to your application and create just a beautiful icon even without any suggestion of ...
Depending on wether this is commercial use or not, you might want to check out Icomoon. Be aware and pay heed to the licensing. In any instance, you might want to search for something like "free svg icons" or something to that effect.
Why don't you try a small "graph" style icon to represent attributes: I feel that this icon can't be confused with something such as "tools" or "options"
An icon representing generic control elements should work, for example showing a two-part radio button. Or, similar, a simplified equalizer control: If a symbol of "control elements" causes confusion with a tools icon, representing just a list of items could solve that: Images from awoken-icon-theme
In Illustrator CC - the Save As dialogue has a Use Artboards checkbox. Checking this will save each artboard as a separate SVG file (don't forget to select SVG format). If you have more icons than available artboards, I'd probably just copy/paste the excess into a new Illustrator document. Source: ...
