Minnesota Flag

  Minnesota Flag redesign  Advanced Problems in Graphic Design, Fall 2017   The current flag consists solely of the Minnesota state seal which is far too complex to be seen from a distance. The new proposed flag is a simplified design in which all working parts can be seen from great distances and still remains symbolic to Minnesota.

Advanced Problems in Graphic Design, Fall 2017

The current flag consists solely of the Minnesota state seal which is far too complex to be seen from a distance. The new proposed flag is a simplified design in which all working parts can be seen from great distances and still remains symbolic to Minnesota.

 I began the redesign process by researching the state of Minnesota, its current flag, and other contributing factors to the state’s history. I had also interviewed a few residents of the state as well in order to find out what Minnesota was like at a community level.

 I then created as many thumbnail sketches as I possibly could to exhaust the obvious options as well as lead to more successful compositions. After narrowing down my sketches to a final composition I began tweaking specific elements and hue choices until I was satisfied  with the overall appearance of the flag as well as its’ representation  of the state of Minnesota.
