Product Icons.

ICON SYSTEM  |

As a result of a greater brand refresh, I was tasked with creating a bold, cohesive set of icons for TechSmith’s software, including Snagit, Camtasia, Relay, Morae, and Jing; a letterform was the most successful way to do so.

The icon set has several layers. While TechSmith tools offer their own niche applications, each individual product promotes enhanced communication and idea-sharing. Based on that ideology, the base shape was created as an abstract thought bubble.

VISUAL MERCHANDISE  |

TechSmith, maker of screen recording and video editing tools, encourages communication and collaboration via computer, tablet, and smartphone.

Intentional line spacing adds depth and movement to an otherwise two-dimensional design.

The invitation, as well as all event collateral, featured a starburst created with images of silver party decor, and silver foil details. The affair was elegant and sparkling.
