Illustration is where I began my design journey.
Keeping in touch with childhood dreams, icon design is one place where the kindergarten version of myself smiles from the past into my present.
Many websites are refreshed, sometimes with a whole new design that isn't always mine. A web application may be completely reimagined, without my touch, or a mobile app may be discontinued. My work as a designer is often ephemeral and that means obsolescence, even at production.
But, I can still look at many of the accompanying icons that I created in these projects and still feel a sense of satisfaction. Unlike a screenshot, which doesn’t hold the same vibrance without the platform, or even function, icons can live on even when viewed simply as a snapshot.
Icons are the stable word which remains even when the sentence of the application or website has been struck from the pages of digital existence.
