Iconic MC

Posted by

To quote another DS106 pioneer, I spent entirely too much time on this assignment. In fact, I created several different potential icons for myself, but I was never fully satisfied with any outcome. I can’t even say that I am fully pleased with this outcome, but at some point you have to concede the fight.

It is incredibly difficult to summarize oneself let alone into a singular image. However, I like to identify myself as an MC. Not only is it my name but also I like the idea of poking fun at the notion of being a Mic Controller.

The Process

I found the icon of the two speech bubbles on the NounProject. In GIMP, I used the magical lasso and selected the conjoined speech bubbles. I experimented with different fonts in different colors until I settled on the teal color. It was that easy and it was that hard.
