ISOTYPE Created by Giving a Limitation of Available Lines in a Frame.
Concept & Design
 
The idea of this pictogram is based on ISOTYPE pioneered by Otto Neurath. Also, when my symbols were created, the basis of the form came from Chinese characters, which are basically one type of ideogram that directly reflects the meaning of the symbols. For example, this symbol, which means 'human,' resembles the Chinese character, human. Following the rules to create a new pictogram, the icon is created for easy understanding and remembering.   For a word referring to human action, for instance, the head is symbolized as a square, and the action is expr¬¨essed by the least number of segments to deliver its meaning. However, unlike other ISOTYPE and Chinese characters, this pictogram is created following the same systematic method as the pictograms of Alphabet letters mentioned above. Thus, this approach also ensures easy application to embossing letters, sign lightings, or computer languages.
