Icons Help Win Website Award

Expanding Health Care Icons

Expanding Health Care Access and Coverage Icons

Remember the Iconathon event I talked about a while back? The final icon set, developed from the symbols created during the workshop, can be seen in the image above.

Many of the icons from this set were used in the new Health Care Policy and Financing website. I was part of the design team that re-designed the site to be more consumer-friendly, with a focus on the Coloradans who are trying to obtain and use health care coverage. Late last month, the website was presented with a Silver Leaf Award from Colorado Healthcare Communicators in the category of Website – Budget under $15,000. I am super excited about the award and honored to have been a part of the re-design process! Take a look at a snapshot of the new website’s homepage below:

You can downloaded the icons for free from The Noun Project’s website at this link (note: the site doesn’t work well in Internet Explorer; use Chrome, Safari, or Firefox instead): http://thenounproject.com/HCPF/#.

How would YOU use these icons? How else can the health care industry develop better tools to communicate with the public? Share your ideas and thoughts below!
