LOL: A Humorous Update Of The Universal Symbols Representing Humans
By Dorothy Tan, 12 Jan 2017
New York City-based designer Ji Lee, who is part of the Creative Strategy team at Facebook and Instagram, thinks that it is time we update the universal symbols that represent humans.
Regardless of where you are from, you would probably recognize these ubiquitous symbols, which include the signs for the male and female restrooms, the emergency exit and roadworks.
However, instead of updating the graphic design of these symbols, Lee has simply added in a rectangle to the hands of the human figures in these symbols, which stands for the smartphone.
Considering how inseparable we are from our devices these days, we have to say that these updates are very apt indeed—watch the video below to view all of the refreshed universal symbols.
