Icons and badges

  • The Graphics Working Team is producing open source ecology pattern language icons. See Pattern Language Icons Blog Post.
  • Suggestion: Icons are typically Black and White. A specific color, such as Green - can represent that the icon is being used as a Badge that certifies skill.
