Alzheimer's Flash Cards

I just finished these illustrations for a series of Alzheimer care flash cards. I have a difficult time defining the difference between my logo/icon work and the kind of illustration I do. What would you consider these images: icons or illustrations?

From the Archives

I was recently paging through some old work of mine and came across this unused logo. It was created sometime around 1993 for a floral shop in the Foshay tower, downtown Minneapolis. The client chose a different mark from the selection we presented... and I liked that mark as well. I consider this one, however, to be one of my all-time favorites. I just love the delicate lines.

Icons vrs. Logos

For me, icons are much more difficult to create than a single logo. The difficulty isn't so much with any one image, but rather, rendering each so that they look like they are part of the same family. The subject matter for each icon can vary greatly, but the style in which they are rendered must remain the same.


Here's a recent image created for a poster. The end client is a large beverage manufacturer and distributer. The art director wanted it to capture the feeling of the old Russian WWII posters. Luckily, red is also the client's color.
