The Unveiling Of A Stylish Icon
Back in October, I wrote a post reaching out to the creative community to find someone to design a stylish icon for Bold Blind Beauty. I wanted something more in line with the message of this blog which is anyone can be confident and stylish.
So after I put out feelers for someone up to the task of creating an updated take on the original white cane icon I connected with Jennifer Barrile. Jennifer was on board at the outset and after we exchanged a couple of emails, a few weeks later voilà!!
Jennifer designed two icons in black and white. Both, are an image of a chic woman carrying her handbag who happens to use a white cane. What I like most about these images is how Jennifer captured movement. She (the women on the move) is stepping forward with purpose in her stilettos and her hair is best described as explosive.
The dress. Well, the dress is a vision of individual panels reminiscent of overlapping banana leaves. The panels gently curve from the icon’s nipped in waist to just above the knee. 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.
