The theme I chose for my icon project was sports.I was back and forth between a few ideas for awhile, until one of my friends asked me what one of my favorite things to do was. Playing sports, is one of my favorite things to do, so I ran with that idea.
I started sketching out ideas, trying to decide what pattern to use for each icon. During these sketches, I was searching through the internet trying to find inspiration of how I wanted to design my sport icons. Here’s some of my sketches: (I really am not good at drawing!)
I then went into illustrator and started designing some drafts.
It was really hard for me to create detail on each icon, like shadowing and making the icon express what it’s suppose to be. Well after some critiques and lots of trial and error, these 12 icons are what I came out with. I’m excited for the jump of improvement I made in designing with illustrator and the improvement I made at looking at an object from a different point of view to help the design.
