Whether you are aware or not, pictograms rule our lives! Mwahaha! Okay, that was pretty dramatic. But seriously, these simple drawings denoting instructions are everywhere, telling us: which way to go for an elevator, food, or subway; when there is a campsite or children are playing nearby, what kind of chemicals are hazardous, even which gender a washroom is for! The neat thing about this form of visual language is that it is universally understood, bypassing all language barriers.
These signs-you may recognize them, as they are posted around the school- were created by Commercial Design 11. Can you figure out what these pictograms are showing?
