my basic structure for information stays the same as the first round but legibility has been improved, and the images give a richer background.

Take a look. I'm still working on it but these are the first groups of thought and I'm pretty sure that its a little to tangential. just gimme a shout back so I know for sure. I do think it would be an interesting way to make my icons have a broader meaning.

the darker outlined bubble around the fifties group is to help with legibility and distinction.

If I were to tell you now, I'd say I'll use the icons in a symbolic way. Maybe the gumball for capitalism; the booth could represent the people of the hour (fifties), and could start a tangent that covers cultural info; waitress- capitalism or some sort of reference to class and wage workers.


these seem to be a good direction for the poster. They are collaged together to show the break down and build up of the "basics" mentioned by WEINGART. He said though he broke away from mainstream swiss, the basic principles remained the same.

I've been having a hard time throughout the color development of these icons with deciding whether I want the dark outline or the more subtle yet temperature contrasting outline. both are working but I think I'm going to stick with the orange outline, lightlight green background, and yellow center.
there are a couple of flaws in the icons themselves but that will be the easy part to fix.

these are a part of an exercise in hierarchy. I've gone a bit wild on them but only because there are so many weights of universe and so few restrictions from michael. But I'm not worried because I'll probably here some new restrictions real soon, like on monday.

wrath is a sin too, And what photo communicates clear and suttle? god pushed people one is not suttle but is awesome, I think I'll use either the tightly cropped brooding tv show host(with crowd in background) or the cowboys on horses. These seem to save something for thought

I feel this series of trapezoidal shaped backgrounds helps fit these icons together as a group

my sinful photos

New type
new cropping for lust
new frame for gluttony
new photos for greed, sloth, wrath and pride
same envy

this are a bit more cohesive with my animation for this series. More spacial, less things touching. I like that there is more open black negative space..breathing room. Especially because of all those windows and doors that are mudding everything up

the direction is pretty clear, just need to know what works and what doesn't. I do think the easiest way to plan adding color to the icon systems is to work in gray scale. This is a very simple, effective system. But I won't know which of these are gonna be in the group till later. I'm pretty sure that one of the most interesting routes could potentially be using a trapezoid background shape in some of the oddly shaped icons and a rectangle for the bilateral ones.
