It is common for designers to use only simple lines in the icon design of beauty pageants. As prescribed by the client, there is no choice but to follow suit. It has become a norm to design for beauty-related events and products this way: simple line drawings, almost cartoon-like in appearance, yet elegant and well, beautiful. We suppose that such preference stems from the concept of simplicity being beautiful. Thus, the design is such.
Consequently, by the next year’s “Search for Miss USP” (University of Southern Philippines), the design was carried on and as such, became standard use. It appeared in the invitation programmes as well aside from the posters.
