Week 6: One Story/Four Icons

Posted by

In this weeks design assignment we continued on our design challenges. We were asked to do 15 stars of assignments, two of which needed to come from our “One Story/Four Icons” assignment. For this we needed to choose a movie to represent in four icons. I chose of my favorites “Happy Feet”. In this assignment I was able to download all of my icons from a link given to me on the assignments page called “The Noun Project” all I needed to do was create an account and apply my creativity!

When choosing which icons I wanted to use I made sure to first visually attempt to summarize the movie. I know that the major points of this movie are that it’s protaganist is a penguin, who can in fact dance. I then summarized the majority of the movie as being an adventure to finally find the love of his life (since penguins are monogamous). Since I made this entire project monochromatic, inorder to keep up with the minimalist theme, I chose to have a little fun with the font and coloring/shadowing of it. Then to make it look a little more official I went onto the photo editing site picmonkey and added a frame around my finished product!
