The brief consisted of designing six innovative icons to coincide with the Harry Potter universe. It entailed us to choose between Harry Potter’s class subjects or locations based in and around Hogwarts. Furthermore it suggested to conceptualise an icon style and define a platform according to its potential use.
The concept of this icon family is based on ‘The Marauders Map’. Thus the [6 locations] are all based on Harry’s encounters with the makers of the map. The style and colours convey what can be seen on the map. The icons are framed by a circle, which symbolises the globe as well as Harry’s perspective. The circle is divided in quarters, where the red line denotes where the locations are based on the map.
