This clip “Fünf-Prozent-Hürde” (five percent coinsurance clause) is an animation out of a series of three clips. It explains an aspect of the election system in Germany. Together with Astrid Reinberger we made these clips for the Bundeszentrale für polische Bildung (BPB). All clips were made with help of the PICOL signs.
Two other clips, with the title “Überhangmandate” and “Erst- und Zweitstimme” which are already produced, will follow soon. If you can´t wait to see them, you can watch all clips here on the website of the Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung.

Editors: Stephan Trinius, Stefan Lampe (BPB)
V.i.S.d.P: Thorsten Schilling (BPB)
Conception and production: Astrid Reinberger, Melih Bilgil
Speaker: Melanie Pukaß
Appraiser: Christoph Strünck

What the heck is a floppy disk?

“It´s a storage medium, where people saved files on.”
Maybe people talk like this in a few years. The floppy disk isn´t used anymore.
But its shape is still used to symbolize the procedure of saving files.

I thought this would be an easy icon to design, but it wasn´t and still isn´t.
Now I´ve made two alternatives. So, this is an Request for Comment.
I looking forward for your opinions.

Just one thing. The first icon is also used for download. But in fact downloading and saving is quite the same process.

The Internet is a cloud

If you don´t believe that and also are sceptical on globe icons representing the internet you can download the PICOL internet icon.

If you want to download the Pre-Release of all actual PICOL icons (about 550 icons) as pixel or vector files please download the ZIP-Files.
