Before I made Symbolikon, I couldn’t find a comprehensive visual library of symbols throughout ages and cultures, a library that could give me an organic vision of symbology both in term of meanings and graphic signs. In addition graphic symbols were a chaotic jumble of different graphic styles and qualities coming from different sources and none offered a vector version of symbols. Anthropographic studies are too much wordy and complex for not experts.
Then the idea popped into my head “Transform human symbols in modern and usable icons” – standardized, simple, beautiful – and vectorized. And so over the course of the last year I focused myself in researching and designing these 650 unique glyphs to share with you – graphic designers, artists, tattoo artists, fashion designers, ceremonial magicians, activists, and aesthetes and symbol-lovers of all kinds.
