Create a simple, fun and self-explanatory verb-icon

I love letters! But I love tweaking them into action filled icons, more. It all started when I got the idea to create STAND verb-icon few years ago. After publishing it in design networks, I received encouraging feedback and continued to create more of them as a project. A project to design as many verbicons as I can while having fun creating them. Practicing this had helped me to easily incorporate an idea into a letter/word. So I have created similar marks for my client's projects as well.

Without forcing myself to think of an idea, I sketch the ideas which run through my mind whenever they pop up. Sketching is the first step of my design process. I'll be sketching a few ideas till I feel it's perfect to be vectorized. Depending on the idea, I decide on which typeface to be used or I'll create the typeface (only the letters of the word) if needed.

In this class I'll walk you through how to create a meaningful, simple and fun verb-icon easily by discussing how to decide which letter to be tweaked and which features to be included or excluded. Hope you'll have fun while working on your project.
