Golden Gate Bridge, minimal

I’m not much for drawing, but I’m working on a set of minimalist representations of San Francisco icons for a project right now. I’ll post more about that project later. For now, here’s my rough take on the Golden Gate Bridge.

Note: it looks awfully orange to me, but that’s the official CMYK mix for the color.

    Could you link to the source file. I would like to play with it. ^_^

      What’s your preferred format for making modifications? I’m afraid I did this in a kind of silly way, but I can work on exporting it in a manner that hides that fact.

        Source files of icons and minimalist stuff should always be SVG. And even if you did it in a silly way, you can just mark some elements and join them (using Inkscape). Except if you mean MS Paint silly.

        Regarding the project itself, I really like the iconic representation on the cover of Golden Gate Bridge: History and Design of an Icon.

        Yeah, SVG would be fine. But anything works, if it is complicated.
