SymbolStix is the newest symbol set from the US, now versioned for UK English. Originally designed and developed by News-2-You, Inc for use in its internet newspaper and online curriculum, SymbolStix depicts activities and people as lively, vibrant stick figures, drawn with a distinctive flair to create “stick figures with an attitude”. The set consists of approximately 11 000 symbols.
SymbolStix symbols depict generic persons as stick people with no gender, age or culturally specific attributes to ensure that learners focus on the concepts portrayed rather than being distracted or confused by detail.
This appealing set also includes a range of culturally-significant images such as politicians, athletes, actors, historical figures and popular fictional characters.
