Intellectual Property Iconathon
On August 28, 2015, the United States Patent and Trademark Office and the Noun Project, a California-based organization that promotes the development of symbols to build a visual language, teamed together to hold, what they have dubbed, the “USPTO Iconathon”. This event aimed to create a set of universally recognized icons representing various Intellectual Property terms and concepts. Groups of intellectual property experts, designers from AIGA D.C. and Code for NOVA, and members of the public worked together and developed 19 new icons that are ready to be used around the world. http://www.uspto.gov/blog/director/entry/icons_for_intellectual_property_concepts; https://thenounproject.com/USPTO/.
