Dinosaur Park

I am really excited about joining this class and working on icons (thank you, Dominic!). When I started thinking of a concept, I know I was supposed to think of 2 or 3, but I immediately knew exactly what I wanted to work on. A dinosaur park!

Ever since I was little, I've always wanted Jurassic Park to be real. Since the half-life of DNA only lasts 521 years, that seems unlikely, but at least I can recreate my idea through icons. I spent at least an hour scanning other projects for inspiration, and let me tell you, you guys are intimidating. Anyway, here goes.

This is my mind map:

As you can see, I was ultra focused and didn't really come up with any other ideas.

These are my rough sketches of prospective icons:

I sketched two nurseries, and I think I'll go with the less "human" one. I realize that some of my icons are flat and some have dimension, which is something I'll have to redesign when I actually get to Illustrator. I like the idea of dimension, but I like the simplicity of flat design as well. I created 8 icon designs, which hopefully won't be too ambitious. We'll see!

Any comments are VERY welcome. Thanks for checking out my project, and I can't wait to see yours! :)
