One Story / Four Icons

For 3 stars! For this project I initially went to the Noun Project website to get all the free icons. I loved the variety of symbols this website had to offer so it was rather simple to choose the movie I wanted to focus on. The four symbols I chose were two dogs, a barn, and a set of numbers. These symbols should make it very clear which classic movie I chose. The animals chosen are also very...

This was a project I did last fall semester in one of my art classes, so creating a color palette online was so much easier and enjoyable. metaphors/symbols: What are best practices for using symbols to represent...

Design Thoughts

The Vignelli Canon By: Massimo Vignelli: Below are some quotes I enjoyed while reading this text. "Creativity needs the support of knowledge to be able to perform at its best" "It is up to the brain to use the proper formula to achieve the desired result" "It is my hope that this book may provide that feelings, or in any case confirm and reaffirm those guidelines that we designers love to set...
