Project Description

Design a circular travel sticker

ASSIGNMENT

Your assignment is to create a travel-themed sticker graphic with the circle as the base shape. You can share a graphic that is:

  • Type-based: utilize the shape of the circle to pack in information that exhibits balance and hierarchy. Don't be afraid to break the mold – it can create a more compelling graphic.
  • Type + Icon: spread your wings a little further! Incorporate type and some fun icons to imagine your airline, shipping company, or whatever gets you from point to point. 

DELIVERABLE

Use your Project Workspace to share your steps and process. It would be awesome to show:

  • Brainstorming
  • Sketches 
  • Final graphics

Students who submit their designs will have a chance to be featured on Aaron Draplin's website as a shoutout to their awesome work.
