As a part of exploring different techniques and the fundamentals of effective symbol design, we were given an in-class exercise to create symbols from the following categories with tangrams:
Animal, Appliance, Action Figure, Vehicle, Face & Flower
Insights: To be able to come up with something totally different to the person beside you and still be able to make a form or shape that fitted into the above categories was the hardest part. You’d realize how creative and different everyone is because you had never thought of putting together the shapes that way. Or you would realize once in a while that we’re really not that different because we would occasionally come up with the exact same things.
