Canto Tower trash icon set

Icon Design

 

Canton Tower got her nickname “Slim Waist” from her elegant curvy appearance. People from all around come to see the tallest structure in China. While big crowds are attracted to the tower, they also produce a large amount of trash. Trash sorting was introduced into China in recent years. People are confused and unfamiliar with how to separate trash into different categories due to the lack of instruction on the trashcans. This icon set contains eight trash icons that is created for the Canton Tower­— to provide people visual hints for trash sorting. The icon set inherits the elegant form of the Canton Tower.

  The appearance and the logo of the Canton Tower is the main inspirations of my icon set. I aimed to create a set of icons that corresponds to the style of the tower.
