This past July, I had the opportunity to participate in a super cool event called an Iconathon. Iconathons are design workshops hosted by The Noun Project and a sponsoring organization where a bunch of like-minded people get together to create icons (symbols) that represent a specific civil topic or theme. The theme for the Denver Iconathon was Expanding Health Care Access and Coverage.
During the event, participants developed symbols for 18 pre-selected referents. The final icon set can be seen in the image above, and can be downloaded for free from The Noun Project’s website at this link (please note that the site doesn’t work very well in Internet Explorer; use Chrome, Safari, or Firefox instead): http://thenounproject.com/HCPF/#
Here’s a blog post about the event by The Noun Project: http://thenounproject.tumblr.com/post/61032491330/new-health-care-icons-added-to-public-domain
