Summary
"Pictograms and icons are a keystone of nonverbal and multicultural communication. But what exactly are pictograms, and when is it appropriate to use them? What are their advantages, and what rules must be followed? What pitfalls must designers of pictograms and icons take care to avoid?" "Rayan Abdullah and Roger Hubner address these questions and scores of others in this illustrated guide to pictogram design. Drawing on a multitude of examples from around the world, they outline the history of the pictogram and show how it has been used in commercial and creative fields over the past century, as well as offering hints and advice to designers."--Jacket
