Icons for Children : Of the use of icons as signs in the City Library's children's section (English)
Abstract [en]

The City Library has a problem getting children interested in reading. Futhermore, there are no clear signs to aid children to navigate themselves to books targeted to their age group. To solve this problem, this thesis aims to design signs that is both illustrative and informative.

Of the images that were tested during the research, I would assume that children in such a wide age range requires the simplest level of abstraction from testing the three testing icons, since the second level of abstraction was not interesting enough for the kids. The third, nearphotorealistic level was most liked by the children who were in the city library more often and looked for books themselves.

Abstract [sv]

Stadsbiblioteket har ett problem med att få barn intresserade av läsning. Dessutom, finns det inga tydliga tecken på att hjälpa barn att navigera sig till de böcker som är riktade till deras åldersgrupp. För att lösa detta problem, syftar denna uppsats att utforma tecken som är både illustrativa och informativa.

Av de bilder som testades på utprovningen, utgick jag ifrån att barn i en sådan brett ålderspann behöver den enkla abstraktionsnivån från de tre utprovningsikonerna, då den andra abstraktionsnivån var ointressant för barnen. Den tredje, nästintill fotorealistiska abstraktionsformen, var mest omtyckt av de barn som var läskunniga och ofta sökt efter böcker på egen hand i Stadsbiblioteket.
