Iconathon

Code for America, profiled earlier today, also just announced that it will be partnering with the Noun Project on a series of design workshops, called Iconathon. Of the cities announced so far, Boston will focus developing visual icons on education, Chicago (likely) on democracy, Detroit on urban planning, New York on transportation, Oakland on social services, and Philadelphia and Seattle on community.

As explained on the Iconathon website, “…[G]overnment has a new challenge of quickly and efficiently communicating its services to a constantly evolving constituent base, made of different cultures, ages, religions, and languages. Symbols serve as an integral part of overcoming this communication barrier, and are already widely used throughout various public spaces to represent objects and ideas within education, health care, transportation, and recreation.”
