icon | cut-out | legend | scraperboard
Icon is one of four styles which are simple and strong.
As mentioned on those pages as well, it’s similar to Cut-out, in that it has flat shapes. Like Cut-out, it has thick lines surrounding it, like Legend. But the difference is the colour of the thick outlines.
Icon is (surprise, surprise) very suitable for use in logos or for presenting information graphically, as in the weather icons shown here, or the larger weather pictures. Children and adults find these images easy to absorb and assimilate a lot of info in a very short time.
Also a good style for cartoons with broader appeal than just for kids.
