One day

Beginning this project on June 29, 2013...


20 referents of my daily routine:

  1. Wake up
  2. Silence alarm
  3. Shower
  4. Dress
  5. Style hair
  6. Ride subway downtown
  7. Collect newspaper
  8. Work: email
  9. Work: calendar
  10. Work: talk to colleagues, students
  11. Break for lunch
  12. Ride subway uptown
  13. Wake boyfriend via FaceTime (in Singapore)
  14. Cook dinner
  15. Talk to roommates
  16. Design
  17. Listen to music
  18. Movies/TV for entertainment while winding down
  19. Shower
  20. Zzz...


Initial symbol sketches:

#6 / #12 Ride subway

Still considering if/how I will distinguish between the downtown and uptown trains on either end of my commute.

#13 Wake boyfriend in Singapore

Clearly demonstrating a cross-continental wake-up call (NYC ⇾ Singapore) will be a challenge.


#1 Wake up and #2 Silence alarm

Two symbols redrawn in Illustrator - I am considering swapping #1 and #2, and showing the alarm sounding, rather than the act of silencing the alarm.

#3 Shower

In other instances in this family, energy and light are depicted using lines. For consistency, I'll create a second draft of this symbol with lines for the water stream, rather than dots, and see which works best.

#5 Style hair (two options)

#6 Ride subway

#13 Wake boyfriend in Singapore

I've chosen the Statue of Liberty in NYC, and Singapore's Merlion to represent the two locations. I think the Merlion drawing is OK, but Lady Liberty is not as clear as I would like.

So far...

#1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18
