Today I work on a way-finding project, thus not finishing my animation of yesterday. Both are great to work at so no complaining here.
The basis for the icons is Font Awesome, I took a screenshot and then in Illustrator CS4 I did live trace with custom settings. The results I expanded and then loads of testing, path manipulations and the like.
Idea is to first go through all the possible signs, build a system and then explore styles. So at the moment it is rather blunt and primitive.
I am pretty happy with the results so far. Many signs to go still...
