WHAT IS A PICTOGRAM ?
pictogram is a variant of the word pictograph.
While pictogram can be substituted for pictograph, the word
pictogram itself has no real meaning - but it is widely used.
The main difference seems to be that a pictogram is one or
(usually) more pictographs with a particular message beyond
what each pictograph may usually represent.
Pictograms/pictographs consist of simple visual information.
We are exposed to thousands every day - in the form of the
couple on toilet doors, on mobile devices, computers,
weather maps and traffic signs which represent information,
warnings or simply serve to enhance our environment.
WHAT ARE ISOTYPES ?
ISOTYPE (International System of TYpographic Picture Education) - a
system for organising and displaying information and statistics using
pictures. The system was initiated by Otto Neurath in the 1920s. Marie
Neurath, who married Otto in 1941, was responsible for analysing the raw
data and putting it into picture form, ready for production. Gerd Arntz, a â
€˜socially committed artistâ€™ was responsible for the final images and
therefore Isotypeâ€™s recognisable style.
