Minimalist icons are a new experiment for me, and one I wanted to incorporate into a website for work. I needed three icons for the front page, one to use for the history section, one for the bird research, and one for the mission. The three needed to match in style and simplicity while being a visual explanation for the text. I created all three in Adobe Illustrator from scratch, without prior sketches. All three were created using only pen tools and circles.
Creating completely digitally is not always easy for me, so this project served as a challenge. Envisioning minimalist birds that would match the other two icons was also a difficulty that took me the most time to overcome. Overall, I’m very happy with how the icons came out and hope they’ll be used in the final web project.
