symbols + codes / by tyler galloway

my daughter's invented a friendship symbol for her and her best friend that they use to identify as pals. secret code! you, too, can invent symbols and arrange them into a code for clandestine communication. 


who would've thought that washing your clothes properly would require a visual language? this looks to be a code comprised of icons [with somewhat low-motivation] and symbols. 

and then there's this bit of humor below, poking fun of how highly coded and exclusive these signs are. 


thanks to lisa j. maione for the images!
