Peanut Allergen Icon

 

DESIGN PROCESS

These are small computer sketches created to find the icons required to represent the top 8 food allergens throughout the project. The figure needed to be easily identified as a peanut to describe the allergen correctly. I played with the visual look by making it more abstract, geometric, filled in and linear. My processed caused me to try out different styles from animated, cartoony to more realistic and at the end completely simplified. The icon used was the easiest to read and the one chosen the most by those who have this allergen.
