12 Symbols

These twelve symbol designs are the final design of the Artgr 571 class in Iowa state University. For this design, I selected two topics, police officer and bulldozer. Once I selected topic, I researched about the stories related with my topics. As a result of my study, I designed these twelve symbols with design principles such as direction, anomaly, contrast of positive/negative, similarity and repetition. If you want to see the process of this work, you can see here. 2015 Spring Iowa State University Graduate Study Instructor: Fontaine, Lisa
