I understand your predicament. You can't learn every topic but that doesn't mean you can't get your feet wet with many. Having a survey-level comprehension of graphic design will make you better in other areas and hopefully help you collect a few extra Euros along the way ;) If I had to choose one There are a lot of design books out there. Many are geared ...

Here are the steps you should take at this point: Obtain and read "The Non-Designer's Design and Type Books" by Robin Williams. This is the book I consistently recommend to anyone in your situation and quite often to my own clients to help them get a better grasp on the subject. It's easy to read, very practical, and full of simple-to-grasp visual examples ...

This is not the ultimate answer, just my droplet Thou Shall Not Use Comic Sans I find that this book, although sounds silly and gimmicky, is actually a great introduction to graphic design. Not a text book at all, but for somebody starting to "think" about design it is great, because of its light and humorous tone and because of the huge spectrum it ...

You can check this comprehensive MSDN article on icon creation. IMHO it is one of most valuable all-basics-in-one-place sources around. It focuses on creation of Windows 3D icons, but the principles are universal.

You can use the basic tutorials on the Blender website. Also, check this first: http://www.panduaji.com/2013/01/3-common-newbie-problem-in-blender.html You might want to reconfigure the left-click before you do anything else. :) Once you have an understanding, this guy is good: http://www.blenderguru.com/

To be honest, I'm not too big a fan of your secure and easy icons. Particularly the secure one - it made me think that the car is unlikely to get stolen, rather than that my family would be safe in it (which I gather is the point?). I like @Yisela's suggestions... Alternately, if you want a part of a car instead of the entire car, you could do something ...

Like the design. The car needs a bit more details but i know its a work in progress. What is the theme for the site ? The easy is kind of 2 way might mean good. But its a hard word to describe

Fast: should be a clock or timer like icon representing a time saving. Secure you can choose a shield icon.
