For this challenge, we need six (6) icons to be created, these icons represents the session types within an event agenda listing. Please go through the storyboard and come up with icon design that fits the existing look & feel.

Design Guidelines:
Please make sure you follow below design requirements
- Theme: Clean, Serious and Professional.
- All icons need to be easily edited and resized, so please create them as vectors
- You must submit .ai  icon source files
- We encourage you to research the icon based on the given concepts.
- Your icons need to fit the current event application look & feel (storyboards attached)
- All graphics must be consistent and look to be part of the same "icon set" (for example, use the  same perspective, weight, etc).

Required Icons:
Provide 6 images (graphics) to support descriptive text for sessions types within an event agenda!.

1) Break:
- This refers to the break in between the event. Think of a icon like a watch or something to do with time. Or even as simple as a series of icons that can say 15 Min Break, 30 Min Break 1 HR Break.

2) Food:
- This refers to the break in between the event for lunch/dinner/breakfast. Consider showing an icon that indicates a meal.

3) Session:
- In an event, sessions will be conducted by the host and members attending will have the opportunity to participate in these sessions. This needs to be a generic icon for session types. 

4) Departure:
- This refers departure information of the attendees after the event. This could be a travel icon...most likely an airplane.

5) Customer Objective Session:
- This icon refers to a customer lead session. This icon could be a person icon.

6) Summary/Wrap up:
- This refers to wrapping up/completion of the event. Think of an icon that can stand for the finish of an event.

7) Bonus Icons:
After looking at the storyboard...think of other icons that would be good for this APP and fit in with it’s theme. This is not required...but special consideration will be given to icon set exploration.
