Fun with Iconic Classical Composers

You’ve probably heard of the likes of Beethoven and Bach, but have you thought of other ways their names could be interpreted or visualized? I wanted to have fun with the names of classical composers and so I set out to create icons that represent ways that...

MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU

From the day that I first learned that Darth Vader was Luke Skywalker’s father I had fallen in love with all things Star Wars. I created icons for my favorite things in Star Wars. I really tried to capture the way that I saw the characters as a little girl,...

Pac Man Popsicles

This week I decided to create a set of 12 icons.  When I was in High School I often would sketch Pac-man characters into my notes.  Those sketches are what inspired this icon set.  I’ll be going over the entire process from sketches to finished product....

Swim Gear Icon Set

So for this project I did something that I love, and that is swimming! I did competitive swim for all four years of high school. It was a big part of my life and is still one of my favorite activities.  Brainstorm: The very first thing I did for this project was come...

Bare Essentials of Indie Rock

From the beginning, I had a pretty good general idea of what I was going to do for this project. I wanted it to be about music and the lifestyle that is often associated with it. In order to flesh out the idea a little bit more, I did some “brain dump”...

Cake By The Ocean

After looking at the logos I had previously drawn up, I didn’t feel inspired and I felt like I had hit a dead end. So I went back to the drawing board and tried finding a concept that felt right. I thought and I thought and I ended up sketching just a palm tree....

LDS Family Traditions

My LDS family traditions icon set was created with the purpose of reflecting the main family traditions that every Latter-Day-Saint family should practice: prayer, scriptures reading, church attendance, temple attendance, family home evening, priesthood blessings,...

Need Some Space

So, when I first started thinking about this project, I explained the concept to one of my best friends. As we discussed our mutual love of travel and sightseeing, I thought that doing a series based on various U.S. National Parks could be really neat. Then, I...

Iconic Childhood

     This set is something that I actually enjoyed doing. I love super heroes and I always have. In fact, I probably always will, so working on these for many hours was something that didn’t seem like too much of a chore. I ended up completely starting from...

Finding Nemo

This project really tested not only my skills in Adobe Illustrator, but my patience as well! I learned so much more about the program and how to make things turn out. In the past I would think of something and have an idea of how I wanted it to turn out in my head but...

Tinkering with Robots

When I first started this project, I wanted to show my whimsical creativity. When I was little, I used to draw robots a lot because they were fun. Now I’ve turned them into profession icons that still capture that whimsy. These icons are meant for the use of all...

What Happened to My Money?

Stages of Money Process: Creating this idea: 1. first started scribbling around the page to clear my mind and ready it for new ideas. 2. I started free writing any words that came to mind and ran with them. 3. I chose a random word that caught my attention and began a...

We Love Katamari!

My icon set is from a game that first came out in 2005 called We Love Katamari for the PlayStation 2. In the game you collect objects and also you collect each of the characters I’ve depicted. I chose to base my icons off of this game because not only do I love...

Surfin’ USA

My core objectives in creating this icon set were to focus primarily on what makes an icon set recognized as a group, learn new techniques in making flat objects appear realistic, and creating a style of icons that was unique.  SKETCHES:  My first round of sketches...

Mary Poppins -Kelsey Barrett

To say that finishing this project was a challenge would be an understatement. I started with Mary Poppins and thought I was doing so good because I had 10 icons finished by last weekend. Until I went and got some help from Brother Kerr. He put some things into...
