PNW Icons

1. INTRODUCTION

Hello! I'm Izzie. By day, I'm a UX and UI designer, designing for screens at Google. I'm excited to get back to the roots of my passion for design. What got me into design in the first place was a love of art, expression, communication, and form. I'm excited to experiment and have fun with the craft of design in this class. 



2. INITIAL SKETCHES

Idea #1 - Pacific Northwest Staples

Most apply specifically to Seattle (Rachel's Ginger Beer, Sailing, Rainier, and Pho) but there's still a lot of Portland crossover in the beard, plaid, coffee, and bikes categories.

Idea #2 - Writing Utensils

This one started expected, and quickly escalated to some bizzarre/funny stuff.


Idea #1 - PNW sketches, cont'd

3. INFLUENCES

Tim Boelaars - impeccable style and restraint.
Dan Cassaro - type, texture.

Damien CorrellTim Lahan - shape/color gods. 

3. SKETCHING DIGITALLY

First Draft

When I first started sketching in Illustrator, I was working with really disparate complex shapes. I changed up my workflow and am instead starting with the basics, with the simplest shapes, colors, and compositions I can.
