This project was an exploration in typography. I created three icons portraying the fifties, sixties, and seventies using components of a classic serif typeface.
The icons highlight significant styles and trends of each decade. Small touches such as the cat-eye sunglasses, go-go boots, and large hoop earrings are what really bring the personalities of these icons to life.
A Stitch in Time is a hypothetical company specializing in period-themed fabric that incorporates these icons. The icons are used throughout the branding applications as a way to categorize fabric by decade. Each fabric is packaged with a custom-labeled tag. In addition, the website allows users to click on an icon and browse fabrics inspired by that time period.
