GPS - Small Screen Device:
Exploration for a portable car navigation system:
Developped while exploring a larger project for the GUI of a directional small screen device at Aaron Marcus and Associate in Berkeley, this sign series demonstrate how simple icons can be in their abstraction.
In an uncontrolled environment such as traffic, while lights-reflexions, noises and other elements of distraction are involved, objectives were to reach clearity in the symbolism and the readability in small sizes.
Visualization of icons demands to reduce the visual message to its maximum of simplicity and visual effectiveness. They refer in their abstraction into the visual language used in cars.
