EDG Pictogram System

Back

This concise pictogram system has been developed for the Dortmund-based waste disposal company EDG to inform citizens about the replacement of the previous Yellow Bin with the Recycling Bin within information campaigns and exhibitions. It visualises different kinds of waste, such as small electrical appliances, metals and plastics, which now can also be collected and recycled. The pictogram system harmonises with the existing typeface of the client. Eventually the symbols for organic, paper and residual waste were added to the system.
