Turntable and Personal Identity Icons

  • Turntable and Personal Identity Icons
    Families of Simplistic Icons
  • These two families include icons that work well as a group, but can also be used alone.
    The turntable icons were created after a lot of research into the styles and makes of vintage record players. For consistency, many of the elements are repeated, and objects fit to specific sizes. Some of the more organic features such as the speakers are hand-drawn. This collection is a history of a specific object as well as a homage to the technology of the past.
    The second set of icons were created from the letterform of a lowercase "a" in Helvetica. This letter represents my name and could be used as a personal logo. Each of the forms evolves from the next and much attention is paid to the relationships of positive and negative space.
