Icon Development & Design Application

Icon Development & Design Application - student project

Introduction:

Hello, My name is Laurel! I'm a freelance graphic designer and fine artist. I've always found it fascinating how such complex shapes can be simplified using basic shapes to create icons. 

Why?

Icons are important in a technology filled world - even in print. I want to be able to demonstrate how to create a cohesive icon set and talk about how you can apply them to your own future design projects.

What You'll Learn:

  • First, I will teach you how to setup your document in Adobe Illustrator and go over the tools we will be using in this class.
  • Next, we'll talk about line weight, style, and basic shapes. 
  • Then, we'll start roughing out our icon set.
  • Finally, I'll show you how to add the final details to your icon set and make changes to anything you're not happy with. We will complete the class by discussing how our new icon sets can be applied to a future design! 

I can't wait to get started!
