The designer Victor García on the definition of the typographic category of pictograms and symbols

In Autumn Number 45 of TYPO Magazine in a very interesting and amusing article, the Argentinean designer Victor García seeks a suitable definition for type families composed of pictograms, symbols and other elements beyond language representation. In his article currently conventional designations are critically and minutely examined and observations made as to which terms are more correct in this genre and could better describe it. The whole article is enlivened with illustrations of Victor García’s own pictogram fonts, for some of which he has won awards, and which include Linotype Bix™, Bix Bats™, Linotype Tangomaniacs™, and Linotype Zootype™.

Meanwhile Victor García’s input can be seen on Icograda.org – it is really worth a look!
