Tiny Icons

Project: icons
Description / constraints: 10x10 pixel icons (in 2-bit grayscale) for a wide range of toolbar and display functions
Design approach: as recognizable as possible in that little space!

Other info: These icons were used in a toolbar at the bottom of the screen for navigation between areas of a venue (for example, go to Home screen, Zoom In or Out, or show Employee or Exhibitor list), as well as for information purposes on maps or floorplans (where are the Restrooms, Escalators, or Coffee centers).

I had way too much fun doing these! -- 10x10 is just so small, I was always surprised when I actually managed to convey what I was after....

...and in case you can't see them at that size, this is what a few of my favorites really look like:
