2021 Computers For Design: Icon System

2021 Computers For Design: Icon System 
For this assignment, we were tasked with designing/creating a system of 3-5 icons that represented a theme or source of our choice. For my theme, I chose shoes because I love fashion! Above are my initial sketches of the many different shoes, ideas and displays I had thought up. 
Initially, my plan was to create an icon system out of different shoe types. 1 sneaker, 1 dress shoe, 1 high fashion shoe, and 1 boot. However, I eventually decided to devote effort into making a detailed, illustrative, and cartoon-like icon system out of three Jordan 1 sneakers: The Off-White Chicago 1 (top left), the Shattered Backboard Mid 1 (top right), and the Top 3 1(bottom).  
To begin, I started by tracing each of the previously shown sneakers on tracing paper with a thin, sharpie pen. I then scanned them into my phone and downloaded them into photoshop. 
Instead of just coloring in the sneakers once they were in photoshop, I decided to re-trace them in order to get a cleaner, thicker, and sharper line. That way, the paint bucket tool would have an easier time coloring in the different pieces and the shoes would have a cleaner, thicker line. 
This is the final, colored-in icon system. I colored them using the paint bucket tool in photoshop and used the actual colors from my real life shoe references. I then placed each of them in front of complimentary colored oval and added a shadow to give the shoes a sense of dimension.
