I’ve had a small fascination for pirate ships and flags since I was young. I like the old fashioned aspect of it all, so thought it would be cool to design a personal flag. I started of with a (VERY ROUGH) sketch to get an idea of what I wanted, and then began in Illustrator. I took out all of the curves of the lines, and made them very geometric and straight. It added more of a rough look that I was hoping to achieve. Once I was happy with the flag icon, I mocked it up to kind of get a feel for what it would look like in action.
