Poker Night

Here are my final 6 icons.



My series of icons started off with a loose feel, they almost looked like they were flying through the air


But after trying to apply this style to the rest of my object, the rules began to change from a loose and free shape to more geometric design...


After a few more revisions, my icons began to relate more to a casino something of the sort instead of the poker night at the house which was the original intent. The introduction of the pretzel helped bring that friendly poker night at the house feeling back. But the drink still had an elegant, fancy feel so I switched it up...


This drink looks a lot more like a home made Crown & Coke, as opposed to a bartender shaking up a martini and adding an olive.

Throughout the process I really discovered how to simplify objects, but still leave enough information to convey the message of what it is. Also, to pay attention more to detail as one thing can change the whole mood or message of what you are trying to communicate.

ha yea, but that's what I was kinda going for. I didn't think about Julian though until you said something.
