All Icons must have the same look and feel. they should be suitable for printing on shirts, bags and packaging.
expected print size for each icon is minimal 2x2 cm. therefore the lines must not be too thin to be recognizable.
Please design in black and white initally. I may request that you apply some color after the contest.
Please note that the icons should be simple (easy to understand) and creative (unique design) in the same way.
please note that the icons are used to communicate. so it is important that the symbols must be very easy to understand without having to take a second look. You have to think about how a icon has to look like so that everyone in the world understands it. the symbols must express the essential meaning without being too simple or too detailed. the icons should be used to communicate with someone who may not have internet access and has never seen such abstract symbols before.
