  • Create: Pen & Energy Icon Design
    An icon design created through the combination of two objects, serving as a reminder and call to action (or pens) for creatives everywhere. 
  • This Create series is based around an icon design created to communicate energy and the creative process, experimenting with various applications for the design as shown in the mockup. The design focuses on the simple fusion of two recognizeable shapes to communicate a new message. 

    The objective of this project was to create an icon design representative of the assigned words (in this case, "Pen" and "Energize") by combining two visuals into one image. Here, a lightning bolt takes the place of the pen's ink shaft, representing the energy involved in the act of creating.
