Icons are used to convey a clear message to the audience and helps to build a consistent brand identity. 
This task set out to create a narrative visual journey focusing on my passion for design as a graphic designer.
The task enabled me to reflect on what I generally do on my design days and to translate that into simple iconic images that would convey my day effectively.

Testing icon design ideas 

Through this task I aimed to tell a story through my chosen style of icons using line drawings to create a variety of fairly conventional structures for the visual message.  The aim was for each icon to communicate the task or activity in my daily life with designs representing a literal interpretation of the ‘draw the line’ idea from my previous branding concept. 
As an icon is a simplified illustration that communicates quickly (Hembree, 2006) my icons were designed to be functional and intuitive so that viewers could interpret the intended message.
I learnt a lot from this activity especially the significance of objects and themes in storytelling.
