Project Update

So it’s been a long time since I posted, probably because once I get working the blog just isn’t on my mind. However, it now is, so this post is just going to update you on what I have been up to.

Below is the full completed set of icons. These are what I based my questionnaires on regarding how easily people could identify what each one meant. The majority did very well and there is only 2 or 3 that i may have to take back to the drawing board. All of them in the future would have a few aesthetic tweaks to get them fully up to scratch, taking into consideration the height and width proportions of each other. I personally feel this icon set works very well and all the icons are clearly part of the same set, despite some being more complex than others. The top row are my personal favorites as these are the strongest when placed next to each other.

Below is a small test of how my icons could be presented in a moving image format, i decided to do this as another way of presenting my icons. This probably wont be something used in the exhibition or even shown for my major project, although as a test which i can screenshot and add to my sketch book it shows how i have considered the wayfinding system as a brand.

I have also been working very hard on the specification book, which is now on its way to me from the online book store/printers Blurb.

Here are a few preview pages:

Also, some specs of how the icons can be used with Gill Sans to provide a sign system. The icons can also be used on their own to provide a wordless system:

There is still much more to do and much that I haven’t shown, but these are a few good examples of where i am at.

Tom out!
