Think like an artist: Create a graphic icon
How we manipulate an individual color and mix with other colors is much like an orchestra or band, where each color is an instrument. And how we use the instruments determines whether or not the design we are creating is a fierce war cry, or a quiet sleepy moment. In between those two extremes is a huge space with infinite possibilities.
Get creative with design in class
In this project you will create a graphic icon to learn about hues, saturation levels, value levels, and symmetry. The lessons you learn about color can be applied to other types of design as well, including product design, animation, and architectural design. Use the design thinking and tutorial videos to help you get started creating eye-catching icon in Sketchbook.
