The evolution of the elevator pictogram

Moniteurs in the Information Design Journal

The pic­togram study by Moni­teurs, which was al­ready pre­sented at the In­for­ma­tion+ Con­fer­ence in 2018, has been pub­lished in the In­for­ma­tion De­sign Jour­nal (IDJ). The study shows how dif­fi­cult the per­cep­tion of the two pic­tograms “el­e­va­tor” and “toi­let” is and why they are of­ten con­fused. The IDJ is an in­ter­na­tional jour­nal that has bridged the gap be­tween re­search and prac­tice in in­for­ma­tion de­sign since 1979.
