Icons by Hour

An ongoing project exploring iconography in relation to time.

About the project

Icons by Hour is a self-initiated project that explores icons in relation to time. The aim of the project was to give myself a launchpad that would enable me to document everyday objects and actions whilst refining my craft in icon design. The concept of the project is based on chronology; each minute of the day is represented by an icon contextual to that specific time. The icons form a visual narrative, giving a flow that represents a day in the life minute by minute.

The Result

To showcase the Icons by Hour collection and give myself a future-proof framework for new icons, I created a small responsive website purely from svg files. The icons were also featured on the The Noun Project homepage and blog, and the some icons were used an article for The Atlantic Magazine.
