Brian Brasher features his icon design work, methods, sketches, and more.
- [Narrator] In this movie, I'm going to share with you…the work of one of the best icon designers…in the world, in my opinion.…His name is Brian Brasher, a designer and illustrator…based out of Alabama.…I've known Brian for over 16 years…and his icon work is what I'd describe…as profoundly simple, yet simply profound.…So let's take a look at it.…Here's some icons selected from a set…he created for HTC, the mobile phone company.…
And these are great, they're so iconified,…but the clarity of communication is just impeccable.…It's just right on spot.…He's not using any gradients, it's all flat colors…and flat shapes.…And if I go to Keyline View you can see how those shapes…composed in terms of using multiple shapes,…but all composed in such a way…to pull off the look and feel.…Now look how he did the horns on this character.…So when I go back to Preview Mode,…you can see how it pulls that off as well.…
Now Brian is a true master when it comes to iconography.…Now these icons were just part of a greater set…he created for HTC.…
