Margaret Calvert Inspired Piece

For my Second Artist for my A2 Module I decided to focus on Olt Aicher (who worked on the first Olympics Pictogram) and Margaret Calvert who creates the street signs that are universally known to the world to this day.

I was inspired by these two artists due to how all their work was iconic and known by the world, this is something I wanted to try and show for this piece.

I decided to work with Pictograms and came up with the Idea of a Gym inspired one, I felt this would be comical and relatable for those who attend the gym. To achieve this I worked with several design concepts that was moved forward with Graph Paper and Photoshop to create this Digitally. Finally the final concept was achieved with a slight warp effect and the use of basic but bold colour.

Below shows my steps to achieve this.
