Ever since I came across My Icon Story on instagram a few months ago, I fell in love with the concept of creating beautiful icons to capture your travel memories. Long gone are the days when holiday prints are put in a photo album to gather dust. Your travel memories can now be transformed into beautiful pieces of icon art.
Laura Robinson is the brains behind My Icon Story, a brand she created in 2016 after enjoying her own travel adventures. In less than two years it’s hard to believe that Laura has designed over 300 icons, with more being added almost daily due to customer demand. So when Laura asked me to design my own print, you can imagine how hard it was to choose my icons. Icons that would represent our travel adventures, and the memories we have.
The first decision I had was to choose the number of icons for my print. The smallest print has 4 icons, and goes up to the Wall Hogger (a great name) which has 12 icons. Next you select a background colour for your print, then comes the fun part.
I got a feel for the different types of icons by clicking on the map of the world, or you can use the search function. If you don’t find the icon you want, Laura will even create one for you. I wanted my print to represent some of our family travels, and these are the icons I went for.
It really does represent some of our treasured travel memories, the places that have a very special meaning in our heart. And I guess that’s what Laura was looking to achieve when she started My Icon Story. A different and unique way to display travel memories, wedding memories, home memories.
