Icon First Aid

After writing down a lot of my hobbies I decided to go with the three that are on my mind the most at present.

Idea Phase:

My hobbies list looked like this.


My narrowed down hobbies.

Coding websites, business and t-shirts.

Sketch Phase:

My original concept was to use the octogon shape and display multiple words marks to represent each concept.



Then I tried the railroad crossing shape with words and marks.

Creating Icons Phase:



But found that it was a little difficult to read. But by rotating the the sign 45 degrees made it more legible. 

Add still gave the idea of two paths crossing.

In the final icon I wanted something simple using only marks to represent my idea. Recognizing the cross and the red background color with white lettering represents first aid, I found to be very appealing.

Although I am pleased with the coding and business icons I could have spent more time with the t-shirts icon but the ideas were just not flowing freely with it.
