A Bold Step Forward
Back in October I did a post where I reached out to the creative community in the hopes of finding someone to design an updated white cane icon for use on my blog. I was seeking an image that was more in line with the message of this blog which is anyone can be stylish.
So after I put out feelers for a designer up to the task of creating an updated take on the original white cane icon I connected with Jennifer Barrile. Jennifer was on board from the outset and after a couple of emails were exchanged where I expressed my vision, a few weeks later voilà!!
The two icons Jennifer designed were done in black and white and both are a profile of a chic woman on the move carrying her shopping bag who happens to use a white cane. What I like most about these images are the movement. She (the women on the move) is stepping forward with purpose in her stilettos and her hair is almost floating about her head.
The dress. Well the dress is a vision of individual panels reminiscent of banana leaves that do not touch but appear to overlap. Since the panels gently curve from the icon’s nipped in waist to just above the knee, again you can sense the movement. This woman is on a mission and she knows she’s fabulous even with her white cane.
Jennifer, thank you so much for working on this project with me, it was such a pleasure brainstorming with you on this beautiful design.
Update: It should be noted that this icon was specifically created for Bold Blind Beauty and is not a replacement for the nationally recognized white cane icon.
