Our New Skillshare Class: Illustrating An Icon Set

We're excited to share our latest Skillshare.com class which is now live! In this class you'll learn to design a cohesive icon series, inspired by your favorite movies. The idea behind the class was sparked by our poster celebrating Paramount Pictures’ 100th Anniversary, in which we designed 100 unique icons representing a movie from each year of the studio's history.

From sketching and concept development to final execution, we'll share how to distill complex subject matter into recognizable small-scale designs. You’ll learn how to:

  • Use reference imagery to simplify a complex subject into a single image
  • Create a limited color palette that works across a series
  • Establish design rules to ensure consistency across your image set

From small-scale projects like buttons and pins to professional branding work where consistency is key, students will leave this class with an arsenal of design tools to utilize again and again. This class joins more than 10,000 classes on Skillshare, an online learning community where anyone can discover, enroll, or even teach a class in design, entrepreneurship, and more.

Bill & Ted Double Feature

This Summer, the Alamo Drafthouse hosted a double-feature of the cult classics Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. We created a poster for each movie which are now available in our store.

The Excellent Adventure poster is a 24” x 36” five color screen print with a numbered artist edition of 50. We were inspired by the time traveling phone booth from the film and each year visited by Ted “Theodore” Logan and Bill S. Preston, Esquire.

The Bogus Journey poster is also a 24” x 36” five color screen print with a numbered artist edition of 50. This poster depicts the levels of heaven, hell, and purgatory that Bill & Ted visit throughout their trip.

Check out closeup photos of the prints below as well as our initial sketches. Both posters are now available in the DKNG store including a special deal when purchasing both posters.
