Motivational Symbols is a concept project, created for the needs of a Sign, Symbol, Image course. The objective is to explore how meaning can be conveyed by the visual qualities of a symbol. After choosing a product, in this case, guitar amplifiers, the goal is to design a series of abstract, figurative symbols using only lines in order to communicate the object or its attribute as well as the client, in this case, the manufacturer.
Product: Electric guitar amplifiers
Client: Electric guitar amplifier manufacturer
The client is sponsoring an annual meeting for their employees. The purpose of the meeting is to inspire and motivate these people, which will help the company move forward. They’ve asked me, the designer, to design a unified series of original symbols that communicate the issues that will be discussed at the meeting. In addition, they want the symbols to suggest their product or the qualities of the product abstractly.
The issues that will be discussed at the meeting:
The lines represent the sound waves
that are transferred through the air,
coming out of the speaker cabinet
of the guitar amplifier.
