  • Release Date: February 2009
  • Client: Genea-IT Ltd.
  • Format: Application Icon

iFontuim is a document management application for amateur and professional genealogists for Mac OS X Leopard. It will be able to collect, store, organize, analyze, rate and cite genealogical materials such as birth certificates, censuses, and church book excerpts. Genea-IT and I worked together and created an application icon for this project. They needed an antique-looking image for this icon so I researched about genealogy and finally put together three images; a church book, an old map, and a type of small photograph, called carte de visite (CdV), as a component. And each element was refined using details as dents, wrinkles, and stains for the antique-looking concept.
