The Noun Project: A universal language based on symbols

The Noun Project, a project which hopes to create a universal standard for symbols/ graphics which represent activities or objects that are part of everyday life.

Edward Boatman started the project on KickStarter with a realistic goal to raise US$1,500, they have raised nearly US$15,000 so far. By making the content freely available, they hope their collection will become a universal standard.

The project has about 500 symbols currently. The team behind the project is working on allowing users to upload their own designs, simplifying the search process and enhancing current search features.

Each graphic is downloadable when you click on it, and comes to you in the scalable vector graphic (SVG) format. The graphics fall under Creative Commons guidelines, and you’re free to do whatever you want with them.
