About This Class

Design a cohesive series of icons in this new online class from DKNG Studios, the design and illustration duo who have taught more than 20,000 students on Skillshare!

Join Dan Kuhlken and Nathan Goldman of DKNG Studios as they share their process for creating small scale, iconic design sets. Inspired by their poster of 100 icons, each representing a different Paramount Pictures movie, this class reveals the design tactics they relied on to create one unified series from movies as different as Pretty in Pink and An Inconvenient Truth. From sketching and concepting to the final series, you’ll learn how to:

  • Establish design rules to ensure consistency
  • Distill complex subject matter into basic shapes
  • Create a limited color palette that serves a variety of subjects

After taking this class, you'll be able to use consistency and simplicity in a variety of projects, from branding work to logo design. Whether you're new to design or an Adobe Illustrator whiz, you'll gain an arsenal of tools to illustrate efficiently, use customized colors to your advantage, and create a design style that is uniquely yours.
