Then I went into Illustrator and began to work on the icons.


Then I expended upon my icons more.

The colors are a little off here, but you can get the point.

For my book, I was really inspired by vintage/retro designs and wanted to use what I found and adapt it into my style. I also challenged myself and illustrated my book in a different style than what I am used to doing. My icons and illustrations don’t have strokes yet the cover illustration does. I incorporated the two different styles throughout the pages.

Project 3 Design Process

I started the design process by brainstorming different ideas on what I could make my book about.


I then picked a topic (How to Lose a Guy) and created brain maps. I made two – one for indirect methods, and one for direct methods.



Next, I narrowed down the brain map into the topics that I wanted to use as icons, and sketched different ideas.



Next, I laid sketched a rough layout of my pages and decided I was going to make a 7×7 book and use the square grids that are given on inDesign.


After deciding on a layout, I turned my brain map in to a list of important overall topics and subtopics in order to organize what I wanted to say.


Finally, I finalized my icons and picked fonts and color schemes to work with for my book.


Here is the final project!! I am really happy with how it turned out.
