You will create a set of 45 symbols/icons that will characterize a specific community. This does not have to be a local community but there needs to be a collective treasure that can be visualized.
Create a mood board for this “collective treasure”. Since we will develop b/w symbols you should try to focus on shapes plus patterns, textures, micro and macro aesthetics, environments and identity concepts. Do not post this on your blog but upload it to our shared google space using the “Mood Board” folder.

Define and separate at least 10 elements (curves, strokes, shapes, patterns, textures) that are typical for the visual identity of your entity. These are not symbols but it will become the toolbox to create the icons. Post these on your blog.
Find the new readings “Globalization and Cultural Identity” and “Understanding Comics – Excerpt” in our google doc folder. These should be read during the semester.
