Icons are an effective way for expressing ideas and information. They serve as a visual language that help people to communicate without verbal language boundaries. I always enjoy the simplicity of icons.
Icons I created in college were pretty unrefined as my illustration skill was fresh. They were in hand-drawn style. I created a set of icons for my infographic titled "Waiting time in a week".
My theis project at MICA was a book of 26 pictograms, each one comprised of four individual icons. Every entry represents a cultural experience that I have had in my time in the US.
Working as a designer at advertising agencies allows me to sharpen my skills for the real world. I created icons for digital campaigns and startups. Some are icons used in web applications and some are served as illustrations next to instructional text. The icons help to reinforce the meaning of the text.
I created a set of Christmas icons quickly before the holiday. I was trying to use more colors and details to create more depth to them. The challenge was to avoid overdoing it and also to keep them in a consistent style. It was fun.
