So while in the process of sketching and designing I discovered that to make my website as professional as possible so I took to Pinterest. I looked at so many styles but I just couldn’t find anything I liked or suited my website sketches, so I started doing lots of sketches that I thought worked well with my designs.
I wanted to have something that could be used repeatedly on various digital media so it had to be more of an icon than lots of words. I really liked the combination of words and symbols however it just started to look really busy. I then I thought maybe I could be really clever and make a symbol/ logo by using my initials to create this pattern, however I found this quite hard and I was also spending way too much time on this one idea, so I moved on to something else. Then I taught of having an icon that symbolised graphic design in some way for example a geometrical pencil or something similar. As you can see on the left page I did many sketches and ideas that support this. I kept doing sketch after sketch until I found the one I really liked then made it into a digital copy .
This was the final design I came up with. What I really liked about this design was the circle that surrounded the actual design as it makes it into the icon that I wanted.I think It will look good on my website or as a profile picture on Facebook or Instagram. It multi-functional and really suits it’s purpose. The next thing I want to do in this project is look at colour schemes and some colour theories like complementary colours etc.
