PEI Icon Design
If you are a follower on my instagram, you may have noticed that between June 18th-23rd I did an ‘Icon week’. This is something I hope to make a regular Summer Street Creative excersise!
Icons have always been one of my favourite things to do. I am one of those people who regularly sketches icons.
The process: It takes me about 20-30 minutes to sketch out the icons, of course on my trusted graph paper. As soon as I have ‘perfected’ them, I scan it to my computer and get to vectoring my icons on Adobe Illustrator.
Pictured on the left : The actual sketch as part of my process. You can kind of tell which ones worked and which ones I did not bother vectoring.
PEI Beach Icon
Nothing I love more then to grab a book or sketch pad and chill on the beach- red or white sand! I am so grateful to live only a 15 minute drive to a beach (or 15 minute walk to a waterfront).
PEI Anne of Green Gables Icon
It’s so interesting to walk through Downtown Charlottetown and see the plethora of Anne Merch. I never read the books or watched the TV shows, but its crazy how popular this fellow red head is! And she is fictional!
PEI Confederation Bridge Icon
I never thought I would have any sentiment on a bridge. Until I moved here… After 5 days of travelling across Canada, arriving at my new home in the middle of the night is still a vivid memory. Plus its just a really cool long bridge!
PEI Lighthouse Icon
I love that everywhere you go on the island, there is a lighthouse nearby. Being from the prairies, its pretty neat! One day we hope to eventually visit each and everyone…
PEI St.Dunstans Icon
You do not have to be religious to appreciate this Charlottetown Landmark. I sometimes go into the church to get some design inspiration- there is so much unique elements at every turn.
PEI Lobster Icon
Originally I had wanted to do mussels – I do prefer mussels over lobster (sorry not sorry). BUT for the flat one colour style of icons, the mussels just did not work. Which is alright- because I do still love me some lobster (with garlic butter of course).
