Where to find symbols

Back to menu


You can get your symbols from anywhere that suits long as you stick to some basic RULES.. Here are a few ideas.

Only use these symbols if they click in your mind, don't just use them because you've seen them here. You don't have to use the meanings assigned them here either. Symbols should be instantly associated FOR YOU with the meaning you give them.
