History of Icons Website
A visual brief on icon history

The timeless and award-winning project History of Icons was created in 2015. It illustrates the history of computer icons and icon design from the 1980s to the present.

The project shows a clear, unbiased chronological development of icons. What one can find fascinating and noticeable the icon history came full circle.

With this project, we wanted, among other things, to honor the people who invented and refined those tiny, but life-changing design elements.
