I Feel A Connection

Playful take on a WiFi signal icon. My initial idea for this was to raise each bar slightly to create a nice even shadow but when I was cutting the bars out it caused them to curve a little and when placed down on the desk it made a really nice shadow which I felt worked even better. It's reasons like this why bringing back my physical papercraft background is so important in my creative process. Shadows and outcomes like this would have never happened if I created the piece completely digitally from the start. I may come back to this one at some point and add a bit of animation to the signal bars.
