Ubiquitous Icons:  Peace, Power & Happiness

Based on a 99% Invisible podcast, Ubiquitous Icons explores the history of three commonly used symbols: the peace sign, power button, and smiley face. Their origin often remains unknown despite their widespread use in society.

Ubiquitous Icons is a visual exploration of cultural elements that transcend linguistic and geographical boundaries. By revealing their histories and origins, the project aims to encourage reflection on the power of images to transcend time and culture.
