Struggling for an image to illustrate something? Find inspiration at the Noun Project

Images for ‘blog’ suggested on The Noun Project

The Noun Project is a wonderful resource for creatives, especially when brainstorming.

According to their website, the purpose of their site is to create “a global visual language that unites us — a language that allows quick and easy communication no matter who you are or where you are.”

What image comes to mind when you think of the word ‘save‘?

I guess many of you would have thought of an old 3.5″ floppy disk, the kind used as the save icon in Microsoft Word. Or maybe you thought of a lifebelt, the kind that is thrown out to sea to help save someone’s life.

It is this kind of thing that the Noun Project is trying to collate—the connection between words and images.

Another one, what image comes to mind when you think of the words ‘improve‘ or ‘wish‘ or ‘inspire‘? It is those more abstract words that I find the Noun Project particularly useful for, when I need to illustrate something.
