Minimalist Icon Illustrations Depicting Relevant News Events

I like unique and interesting design projects and I love to feature them here for extra exposure and to inspire this site’s readers. This project has the basic idea of compressing news articles into one symbolic icon illustration relevant for the subject. It is a neat result from combining the creative expression with news coverage.

This is an innovative idea, a concept which makes icons usable not only for folders, buttons or calendars, but also for news headlines. It is a challenge more creative than usual and the design community loves it.

I hope it will become a trend and we will see this kind of icon illustrations on all news sites in the future. Think about the implications; there will be a new niche where graphic designers could work and, the most important one, news will look better and visually attractive for other people than the ones who are reading them now.
