picture dictionary & Android app
ICOON for refugees is a picture dictionary including an Android app for refugees and their helpers. 1,200 symbols, pictograms and photos enable quick and easy communication and are geared specifically to the needs of refugees. No matter whether you want to describe clothes, food or illnesses: simply point at the symbol to make yourself understood. ICOON speaks the world’s most comprehensible language: pictures.
The book is divided into 12 categories from all life situations. The design is clear and cross-cultural. There are additional phrases in Arabic, Farsi, Urdu, Ukrainian, Polish, as well as German, English and French, with which the individual pictures can be combined. The new symbols were one of the biggest design challenges. They had to be designed specifically for medical issues such as scabies, polio and tuberculosis. 180 new symbols were developed for phenomena including trauma, rape, democracy and equality.
