The Unveiling Of A Stylish Icon

Stylish Icon is black and white line drawing. The leaves of the dress are not solid black.

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.

  1. Theresa, I’m so sorry to hear of your struggle but I really appreciate your honesty. You are such a rock and an encouragement to me that hearing you admit to the difficulties that this time of year can yield takes great strength. This is also an important reminder that we share hard times, even those of us who follow Christ. I too have a hard time during the holidays but it’s more that my depression is heightened at this time of year. I will keep you in prayer that you might find peace and joy. You are not alone.

  2. The holidays used to be a wonderful time for me, but to be honest, they are now very hard. I hope that wasn’t too honest. The Lord has been so kind, and has been watching over my husband and me. I do want to acknowledge that.

    Thank you for asking. You are such a kind and thoughtful person.

  3. Jennifer came up with a very clean, stylish look indeed. Congrats to both her and you Steph. I visited her site and saw some other impressive work over there as well. Well done!

  4. Wow I was excited to see the logo in place on your blog! Looks great Steph! I am grateful for the opportunity to work with you and a shout out to Ms. SB for recommending me! My daughter’s comment, the woman looks powerful!
