This week I was able to work on a few fun projects regarding our team here at Dhali. Part of this was creating avatar images for us in the office. I wanted to create an accurate representation of everyone in the most minimalistic style possible. When I finished I threw them all together.
This evolved into a “team portrait”.
My process for these is to take a photo of the team member and throw it into illustrator. Then I select the layer and set it to template mode, which makes it easier for me to distingish the layers. From here, I try and trace out all of the major features using the pen tool.
From here, I get rid of the back ground image and make a few decisions on style and color.
The last thing I do is tighten up the design and add a background. The final avatar can be seen below.
