Learn about looking at complex shape and form and deducing it down into more simple iconic shapes to communicate more quickly.
- [Instructor] The whole reason icons are used…is to improve communication.…To quickly relay an idea or concept…so somebody can notice it and know where to go.…So improving visual clarity, regardless of the theme,…is of paramount importance.…In this movie, we're going to simplify complex form and shape…in order to iconify our design.…And as you'll see, this form of distilling of detail…can be applied to a variety of design disciplines,…such as logo design.…
So let's jump into it.…Now when it comes to icons, there's a great range of icons.…From flat icons, they're showing here on the left,…in the USS Enterprise.…Yes, I'm a geek, I like sci-fi.…And that's one I created.…But the same starship, the same Enterprise on the right…is an icon that was created by Corey Marion…of iconfactory.com.…Most of you have probably interacted…with Iconfactory's work.…
I'm going to show you more work from them…in an upcoming movie where I showcase the work…of other artists who create icons on a daily basis.…And these guys are some of the best icon designers…
