Hockey Game Badges

Hockey Game Badges  - student project


Hi everyone! I'm super excited for this class, hope you all are as well.

So a few ideas popped into my mind for the icon series,  those were:

1. Hockey - In-Game Events

I've long been chipping away at developing on a friend's idea for an NHL (ea sports game) related sidegame, mini game in the form of a website or app. These icons could be badges / buttons that would be pressed to signify an in-game event that just happened, therein triggering a reward or punishment.

Ideas were to show the main events: Goal, Penalty, Fight, Offsides, Icing, Hattrick, Injury, etc.

2. Bicycles - Types & "Scenes"

I've wanted to startup a blog featuring the people (and their bikes) that frequent the Pittsburgh roads and commandeer the bike community here. I figured it'd be really cool to have a series of badges that would quickly, visually sum up the type of rider or bicycle the featured person rides.

Examples: Road, Racing, BMX, Mountain, Cruiser, Commuter, Delivery, Recumbent, Transport

And some rough, first round sketch ideas:

Thanks for looking!


/* I've decided to go with the NHL / Hockey idea. The icons are going to be optimized for small / mobile screens, with the idea of stacking a few on a screen at once as large and tap-able icons leading to an action. */

/* Update - 1st Round */

Here's my first round of vectors, any feedback would be appreciated! (below is actual size for aforementioned usage)
