Creative Project- Web Icons, version 1

30 Oct

Creative Project- Web Icons, version 1

I’ve started out with some draft sketches, (didn’t want to rush right in, so I’ve been considering several ideas) running with a steam/cyberpunk theme.
Had the thought of the icons being “used” for a an artist’s portfolio or shop website.
(I would totally use these for my own if I had one)
Basic icon functions:
Account, Settings, Home, Previous & Next Page, Watch (follow), Cart, Share, and Log-Out/sign-in

As I get further into the vector work, I may tone-down the detail.

Nancy Stahl & Jean Tuttle

23 Sep

This week’s blog assignment was for us to study the styles of Nancy Stahl and Jean Tuttle.
Both designers’ have a very vibrant taste in color, although Nancy’s is a bit more subtle (maybe even more mature) compared to Jean’s cartoon brightness; they are also similar in their use of shape and line.

I really liked Nancy’s strategic texture working in her paintings, such as in this one, where she uses the brush strokes to frame the figure as well as make her pop out.Image

In this one, she uses implied texture in an overall wash (so it appears) seen mostly in the background, accented with simple graphics that help tell the story.

Jean’s style is definitely line focused (which I really relate to and appreciate, because I feel my style is as well) and her bright color and bold pattern themes are well coordinated and encite happy feelings.

She also is able to clearly represent a message in a very clever, and (frankly) cute way.
I wanted to mention her doodle style too, it’s so precious! captured my heart.

It was really interesting looking at their portfolios and bios, as they are both great designers.
