Join Von Glitschka for an in-depth discussion in this video Solution: Design an icon, part of Drawing Vector Graphics: Iconography.
- [Instructor] So, how did you do…with this iconic challenge?…What was the hardest part for you?…Did you enjoy the process?…Did you manage to capture the essence in simplified shapes?…Let me show you how I approach this challenge myself.…Now, I picked the scooter as the theme…that I was going to create…and I just want to show you what I used…as the ingredients shape wise to create my final design.…Now, this and the top of this layer right here,…these are all the shapes that I use to formulate…my final design which can be seen here in black.…
And then I nested it within this container shape…of just a green circle.…Now, I'm not going to walk you through…how I used these shapes to create this.…I want you to take this file and I want you…to take these shapes and I want you to see if…you can get the same result I did.…Now you should be able to if you watched…all the movies in this course.…Now, one thing I will point out is most of these…are just simple geometric shapes…such as circles, rectangles,…but I am using two paths here.…
