Week 5 – After Rahul

Icon Design

Above are a couple of icons I designed for my Google Map location, I took two different approaches to these designs. The one on the left symbolises the innosense of the children who play in the park, filled with hopes and dreams. The second symbolises quite the opposite as we grow up we are sometimes faced with the harsh realities of life and a common way of dealing with these realities is masking our emotions.

#2 Typographic Moodboard

I put together a moodboard of some research I did for geometric typefaces. I found a lot of these typefaces lacked color as it allows the focus to be on the shape of the letter forms.

Typography Photographs

Here are some photographs I took of typography found in my location, most of this type is used for signage in the industrial area meaning it is very bold and strict making it legible at a distance.

#3 Typography Moodboard

Here is another updated moodboard containing further research on typeography that makes use of strong geometric shapes and some form of spacing in the letter forms. I am interested in the spaces as I feel it would be an effective way to symbolise ‘disconnection’.

Illustration Moodboard

Here is a moodboard I developed full of research on illustrations I think would best compliment my design of typeface. Most of these images are graphic and abstract and are effective in the means of symbolising or communicating emotions.
