Paper Abstract

We developed a prototype design support system for generating illustration of a pictogram. A pictogram is a symbol representing a concept, object, activity, place or event by illustration. This pictogram is produced by the designer who gets an illustration more careful consideration and completes it after repeated trial and error. Thus to design pictograms is complicated process, and it is difficult for the general public to produce new design. This paper describes the automatic design system of a pictogram such that everybody can design it easily by combination of basic illustrations.
