PICOL (otherwise known as Pictorial Communication Language) is a project that provides a series of free and open icons for use on electronic devices. The aim is to find a common pictorial language for electronic communication.
This short video tells the story of the History of the Internet using animated PICOL iconography.
The PICOL project is the work of Melih Bilgil, a graphic design graduate of the University of Applied Sciences in Mainz, Germany. If you are interested you can read the full diploma, or download a pre-release version of the icon set in 32 pixel PNG (vectors hopefully to follow).
