Tim Boelaars Icon Series

tim boelaars

The Netherlands-based designer Tim Boelaars recently released a series of everyday icons. The techniques that make his identity and design work so engaging are present here: bold, whimsical, geometric line work illustrating a range of quirky, commonplace objects.

A few of the categories include “Guns”, “Men’s Garments”, “Weather” and more. The sets are available as 18×24 inch prints over at Tim’s shop.

Not to be a total jerk, but when’s everyone going to finally be over the whole icon trend?

Totally agree. These aren’t well done and don’t even have a very good concept. “Men’s Garments.” Uhh, ok.

Totally disagree. How can you say “these aren’t well done”? They are exactly what they intend to be: simplified line drawn icons of certain objects. Don’t completely discredit them because they aren’t your cup of tea. “Don’t even have a very good concept”? Come on. No worse critic than a grumpy graphic designer/self appointed know-it-all!

I love them. And icons never get old – they’ve been around since the ancients used hieroglyphics!

I agree with the first 2 comments, I think this has been done to death, and does not really add anything. Why is this up here and in the CR Blog as well?? It is too easy and without any emotion. Perhaps if it had been a font, but on it’s own as a work of art?? come on… grainedit can do better!

Tim’s one of my all-time favorite illustrators. His minimalist style has always inspired me, at most.
