ICON (ICX) is a cryptocurrency that can be used for real-time payments and also as a protocol for connecting blockchains with other blockchains in the ICON Network. According to the white paper, “The ICON Project aims to build a decentralized network that allows independent blockchains with different governances to transact with one another without intermediaries.” The goal is to build a platform where companies from various industries (e.g., healthcare, insurance, financial, educational, commerce) can interact and transact on a single network. ICON was founded in 2017 by the Seoul based company, IconLoop (formally called theloop). IconLoop is responsible for creating a private enterprise blockchain solution called loopchain. The company has partnerships throughout the banking, healthcare, insurance, and financial industries. IconLoop created ICON (a public blockchain) after hearing from its private enterprise customers that they wanted their private blockchains to have the ability to communicate with one another. In other words, the companies utilizing loopchain (private blockchains) desired interoperability with other blockchains. These companies saw the value in sharing data in a public network, thus the ICON network was born. According to the white paper, anyone can create a new blockchain project and join the ICON network. IconLoop is owned by the DAYLI Financial Group (DFG), one of the largest fintech groups in South Korea. DFG also owns Coinone (a popular cryptocurrency exchange in South Korea) as well as DaVinci (the largest AI provider in South Korea). ICON uses a consensus algorithm called delegated proof of contribution (DPoC). Similar to delegated proof of stake, (DPoS), ICON uses a proxy voting mechanism where token holders delegate their coins to P-Rep (public representative) candidates. With enough votes, these public representatives will receive control of the network and produce as well as verify blocks on behalf of the users who delegated their coins to them. The representatives can be changed at any time depending on their contribution level or governance status within the ICON Network. In October 2017, ICON held an ICO where half (400,230,000) of the total supply (800,460,000) of ICX was sold to the public. According to the website, the release schedule of the other 50% of total supply will be determined through annual C-Rep consultation. In May of 2018, ICON announced a partnership with LINE, a global social media application company with over 200 million monthly users. As of the time of this writing, LINE is the most popular messaging app in Japan and Thailand. Together, ICON and LINE co-founded ‘Unchain,’ which is an effort to construct LINE’s blockchain network. Min Kim is a cofounder of ICON. Before ICON, Kim was an investment banker, financial executive, and startup founder. ICON has the backing of well-known partners including Pantera Capital, Kinetic Capital, and CM Crypto Capital.

Project Description Icon Images, Stock Photos & Vectors
Both black and white icons are provided, but we recommend using UIImage's imageWithRenderingMode with UIImageRenderingModeAlwaysTemplate which will allow the image to be used as an alpha mask that can be tinted to any possible color. The Vector Drawable is currently only available as a black 24dp icon. This is for compatibility with our most standard icon size. To render the icon in a different color, use drawable tinting available on Android Lollipop.
So what’s the goal here? Universal sign change?
The Accessible Icon Project is an ongoing work of design activism. It starts with a graphic icon, free for use in the public domain, and continues its work as a collaboration among people with disabilities and their allies toward a more accessible world. We started as a street art campaign, and that phase of the work is what got us on the radar of likeminded advocates.
Icon images for the web
The complete set of material icons are available on the material icon library. The icons are available for download in SVG or PNGs, formats that are suitable for web, Android, and iOS projects or for inclusion in any designer tools. The icons are available in several formats and are suitable for different types of projects and platforms, for developers in their apps, and for designers in their mockups or prototypes. “The Accessible Icon Project’s New Way to Re-Make a Traditional Symbol,” Minutes for Memories, December 22, 2013.

Most gratifying to us is how the project belongs to others, like our self-advocate partner Brendon Hildreth, shown here speaking at an event with a slide of the icon behind him. Little Projects has appointed Icon, the builder of Sydney's troubled Opal Tower, to construct its high-rise apartment project on the Gold Coast. This seventeen storey apartment building is located in a prominent position on the busy traffic intersection of St Kilda Junction. While its formal composition recalls a child playing with building blocks for the first time, it is in fact a highly considered assemblage of irregularly stacked boxes.
We knew that editing the old signs as graffiti would pose questions more provocatively than a “better” icon, rendered professionally. And we knew that better icons already existed. The original International Symbol of Access, designed in the 1960s by Susanne Koefoed. Its provisions are historic and profound.
Who has access—physically, yes, but moreover, to education, to meaningful citizenship, to political rights? Framing this work as a street art campaign allowed it to live as a question, rather than a resolved proposition. Whether you're a global ad agency or a freelance graphic designer, we have the vector graphics to make your project come to life.
A collection can have up to 256 icons if you are a registered user or 50 if you are not registered. You can change their names, and they are sorted by use.
Its composition of varied heights provides an abstract connection between the surrounding built form within this highly urbanised environment, of medium and high-rise buildings, street signs and billboards. 3.716 project description icon stock photos, vectors, and illustrations are available royalty-free. One collection can have up to 256 icons if you are a registered user or 50 if you are not registered.
By comparison, the SVG files compressed with gzip will generally be around 62KB in size, but this can be reduced considerably by compiling only the icons you need into a single SVG file with symbol sprites. The material icon font is the easiest way to incorporate material icons with web projects. We have packaged all the material icons into a single font that takes advantage of the typographic rendering capabilities of modern browsers so that web developers can easily incorporate these icons with only a few lines of code.

It’s certainly an interesting question to consider how other symbols might stand in for or supplement the International Symbol of Access. We’ve spoken to designers about taking up that challenge as a thought project. EDM were the Development and Project Managers on this significant residential development in Newcastle.
Situated between Hunter and King Streets in Newcastle’s CBD, the project comprised 262 apartments and 450sqm of retail space spread over two towers of 18 & 11 stories respectively. This Android developer article describes in-depth how to implement RTL user interfaces. By default on Android, icons are not mirrored when the layout direction is mirrored. You need to specifically mirror the appropriate icons when needed, either by providing specialized assets for RTL languages, or using framework functionality to mirror the assets. The imageset contains the single, double and triple density images (1x, 2x, 3x) so they work on all known iOS screen densities.
Brian Glenney and I were asking this question when we started altering public signs marking wheelchair-accessible parking—the blue and white icons designating the so-called “handicapped” spots. The Accessible Icon Project is operated by people with disabilities and their allies and is a partnership run in Boston at Triangle, Inc., a non-profit education and employment center for adults with disabilities. The icon has always been free for use in the public domain.
Whereas in the past monumental architecture often had a strong public component, the urban ziggurats of today are emblems and conduits of capitalist globalization. Collections are an accessible way to manage your icons library, and the core of our web app. Press the right arrow or use the top navigation to watch the guide. Using the icon font allows for easy styling of an icon in any color.
Purchase proceeds from stickers and supplies go entirely to support the work of Triangle. Events often look like this one, where self-advocates with disabilities are able to speak for themselves to able-bodied counterparts, advocating for the features of an inclusive world that are important to them. The physical act of painting over faded parking lot stencils makes the project an event-based one, not just a graphic.
We knew that it wouldn’t be enough to make a change to a “better” icon. Instead, we wanted to have a graphic that was an enigma, or a question. Sustaining that question—in the form of collaborations, events, writing, exhibitions, and more—has been the activist heartbeat of the project. And how would you “edit” an existing city to make it more inclusive?
Letting the work live along that continuum allows it to be both an ongoing, long-term activist work and a free artifact that’s useful for simple graphics. It’s easy to look at our icon and assume that it’s a graphic design project. We get a lot of questions about the features of the icon itself and why ours is “better” than any other.
These icons were designed to follow the material design guidelines and they look best when using the recommended icon sizes and colors. The styles below make it easy to apply our recommended sizes, colors, and activity states.
We’re inspired by design activism like ACTUP, Kissing Doesn’t Kill, or any number of historical street art political campaigns. Instead, we wanted this icon-action to be the occasion for asking questions about disability and the built environment, in the largest sense.
So we can’t really control when it gets used as a shallow glad-handing exercise that has no real political traction. But we’re trying, with this site and the way we speak elsewhere about the work, to emphasize the substantive efforts of people who don’t make the news as easily as a shiny new symbol. We see this work as a counterpart to that history of direct action.
