Icons & Diagrams
Setting the Style and Feel of Rambus Imagery
During my time as a Graphic Design Specialist at Rambus, I was accountable for the majority of day-to-day design tasks for the Marketing team. This involved creating and updating product collateral, designing graphic assets for the corporate website and social media accounts, maintaining libraries of diagrams and icons, and designing for trade show events.
Our team was frequently under time pressure, so we couldn't always create icons from scratch. This meant we had to hand-pick icons from Shutterstock to follow a consistent style. If we couldn't find a matching icon, I’d then take the time to create a new custom icon. This approach worked, but it wasn't ideal.
During my tenure, I completely revamped the icon library to a cleaner and more modern look using outlines and more style rules. I maintained this library in Adobe Illustrator for creative use; a second version for company-wide use lived in Microsoft PowerPoint. My manager and I also maintained Diagram Masters in PowerPoint for ad-hoc editing by employees.
