Destination Wedding: Barbados

Destination Wedding: Barbados - student project

[ 4-15-2013 ]

INITIAL CONCEPT

My idea is to create a set of icon badges for an actual project, a wedding website for a destination wedding in Barbados. The goal is to have the badges represent different sections of the site (ceremony, bridal party, what to do, where to eat, etc.).

MIND MAP

I did a different take on the mind map strategy.

I started with the website's main navigation, and branched out into its subnavigation items:

  • The Big Day:
  1. Ceremony
  2. Dinner
  • About Us:
  1. Bride
  2. Groom
  3. How We Met
  • Getting Here:
  1. Travel
  2. Lodging
  • Barbados:
  1. Things to Do
  2. Food
  3. Travel Tips
  • Registry:
  1. Honeymoon Fund
  2. Our Home

From there I wrote what came to mind as visuals for the subnav items. Some items were a bit trickier--travel tips?

Twelve icons seems a little too daunting, but I'll see how far I can get!

SKETCHES

Here are my initial sketches; mainly just sketched what first came to mind after revisiting my mind map. Not really sure what shape to wrap them in.
