Icons

Iconography is the use of images to portray a certain subject, movement or ideal. There are endless examples of well known iconography such as:

poppy

The red poppy – an icon for remembering those that died in the world wars. Anyone who say this icon would immediately understand the reference to war.

 

heart

A simple heart – an icon that represents love or romance. – when in reality hearts aren’t even attractive organs. This image has become an icon, when it has no real relevance to falling in love or romance itself

I want the images I’ve chosen to communicate the steps to the audience rather than using lots of text. Some images that I have chosen in my piece are clear icons – such as the boy and girl toilet signs.

I have used these to be the image under guest list – for everyone around the world understands these signs and what they stand for.
