Kyle Tezak’s Four Icon Challenge

Okay, think about your favorite book or movie. Now, try to picture four icons that can briefly summarize the work. Can you do it? Well, Kyle Tezak can. As Tezak explained to ReadyMade:

Trying to capture the essence of an object or idea with only a few lines and at the same time maintaining its elegance is pretty much design in a nutshell. That’s what so great about icons, they’re tiny poems. I decided it would be a fun project to attempt to sum up some of my favorite books, movies, historical events, anything, with just four icons; the meat and potatoes.

Head over to Tezak’s website to see the seven designs that he’s created for his challenge so far, including Romeo & Juliet, The Big Lebowski and The Great Gatsby.
