ICONS

The purpose of this project was to increase my ability to interpret imagery and ideas into simplified graphics while learning greater proficiency with Illustrator’s Pen Tool. Requirements: Create three variations of four symbols based on the concentration areas in the Department of Art and Design. Design symbols that represent four of the ten concentration areas in the Department of Art and Design. The ten areas are as follows: Art Education, Art History, Ceramics, Drawing, Fibers, Graphic Design, Painting, Photography, Printmaking and Sculpture. You may choose any four of these areas, they do not have to be related to create the set. Each of these four symbols will have three variations as follows: The first variation must only use the element of line and negative space, the second variation must use shape and negative space with stable figure-ground, and the third must use shape and negative space with reversible figure-ground.

I chose to create icons concentrating on Fibers, Photography, Graphic Design, and Ceramics.

These icons to the left, were extra icons made in Illustrator with the pen tool that I created to use in my resume.
