People behind new online newspaper Icons Times noticed that people looking to read news on the Internet are saturated with text and images. That is why they decided to create a visual and iconic website. This means they create a unique icone for worldwide news so that is easy understandable for anyone. This brings clarity and also reduces the stress of having to interprete everything. There is also a text for people who wants to know more about the news.
I think it’s a pretty great idea, even though I assume it’s a big challenge for some news to be interpreted with only an icon. In any case, it’s definitely in the websites I check out daily. And you?
