Multi Layer Sticker

I created the Dog Bird and Spiderman logo during the lab section as we were introduced to making multi layered stickers

For the assignment, I started off from an icon of a person with headphones on. I decided to add sound waves to represent the music being played, and put everything inside a bubble, as listening to music can put people in their own world.

I decided to put a base layer of light gray as a simple circle. The blue bubble was added on top, then the person, then the sound wave, then the headphones.

Everything worked out fine until the cutting. For some reason, the vinyl cutter was offset an inch to the right, and therefore the two large circles did not get cut out properly. The yellow sound wave was small enough that it wasn’t affected by the offset. Consequently, I had to re print the two circle shaped stickers by simply putting them an inch to the right on the board.

Also, I had designed the sticker such that the sound wave would be covered by the headphones, but the cutting process made the sound wave smaller. However, I am still satisfied by the final product.
