The Noun project

The home screen of The Noun Project site

If you are a design aficionado, like myself, you will surely appreciate the pioneer work of thehusband-and-wife team of Edward Boatman and Sofya Polyakov, who  started “The noun project”  along with designer Scott Thomas.

A nice, whole-harted text about he idea behind it all can be read at their post ” a fascination wit the ordinary“.

They have (cleverly) come up with the idea that common symbols  should be readily available to everyone via their site. The collection is daily enhanced by submissions from all over the world, one of the recent being a simple symbol for the Russian toy-icon “Cheburashka”.

Alexey Bondarenko from Russia submitted this great symbol for Cheburashka
