I just came across a post in infosthetics.com that really caught my attention. A survey by iconglobe.net studied respondents’ preference regarding the communcative qualities of public sign icons. It would be great to pull together web icon collections into a major study with a much larger respondent community that includes all areas of design and use. formassembly.com was used to create the survey. Is there anyone out there with the gumption to do it? The results would be a quantitative measure of a great deal of effort. The results of the iconglobe survey are here.
