Camera Stickers

I have to be honest, this project was really interesting for me. Not because what I created was interesting or that the idea of making stickers was interesting…it was interesting because I started out by diving right into it and producing my (basically) final...

Making a Cliche Awkward

For this set of icons, I wanted to do something over done and make it my own. As I was sketching, I realized I was having the most fun with various types of weird sea creatures. Some of them looked rather uncomfortable, so I hit the ground running from there. I...

RAMEN RAMEN RAMEN

“R2d2 It Is You!”

Creating an icon set has many challenges, the first being finding the creativity to launch and spark ideas to fill the pages of my sketch book, view accurate photograph references, and create each image.  I started with some basic sketches, studying an entirely...

Who Remembers Rugrats??

As adults I feel like we can sometimes overcomplicate things when we should just take a step back, simplify things, and look at the situation almost as if a child would. Children are carefree and worry free. As I thought about what icon design to do, I decided to...

What’s in your Fridge?

For my icon sets wanted to do food that can be found in a fridge. As I began to sketch it became evident that I needed to study my fridge. I knew there was milk and eggs but I couldn’t think of other things to put in it. I took twenty minutes to stare at the...

Home Sweet Home

  Icons are hard! Vectoring is hard! But I am learning so much! When I started brainstorming for this project, I was feeling really homesick so I decided to do an icon set from the south. I’m from Louisiana but grew up in Texas and have very deep roots in...

Be a character!

This is an icon set. These are characters from whom I know to imaginative people. My concept for this project is trying to give diverse faces and personalities. However, I wanted to keep the feelings of Asia because that’s where I’m from (Korea) and that...

Got Balls?

This project was fun, and interesting. It showed me the process of design. Before this class, I thought that we could just sit down at a computer and crank out a design. Little did I know that that’s not how it works. If you jump straight into the computer,...

We All Scream for Ice Cream

For my first attempt at an icon set using Illustrator (a relatively new and previously unfamiliar software), I feel relieved, exhausted, enlightened, impressed, and in some areas, disappointed. In the end, I am grateful to finish, and I look forward to improving my...
