I created a set of 20 symbols that work within a single theme. All 20 symbols must be able to stand alone and be distinguished as a part of that common theme. With the use of graphic design principles such as: Anomaly, Closure, Continuation, Direction/Movement, Figure/Ground, Focal Point, Proximity, Radiation, Repetition, and Similarity.
With these principles, positive and negative space must be maintained as well as a unity and balance in the symbol’s design. The use of a grid is also needed in order to give these symbols structure and balance. The goal was to consider a symbol’s reducibility and if the message was comprehensible to all viewers.
