For graphic design we are creating icons for various medical specialties. The three that I chose to design for were: pulmonology, dentistry, and toxicology. The goal of this project is to decide what objects best represent the specialty. After we selected the objects we were challenged to simplify them to their bare essentials.
These are my first concept ideas:
Pulmonology is represented by air and behind the air are lungs.
Dentistry is represented by a ration of toothpaste and a tooth in the background.
Toxicology is represented by fumes escaping from a chemistry flask. I need to find better references for fumes, these kind of look like blades of grass.
