No pole-dancing in Swedish trains!


We spotted this pictogram on a train in Stockholm last night. But what does it try to communicate? Does it have something to do with dancing…in the rain or maybe that you are not allowed to stand on one foot when waving to your friends… we don’t know. 

Making pictograms is probably one of the most difficult graphic design assignments one can get – so we really respect the designers (like Ole Søndergaard) that master the art… but something went very wrong in Stockholm. Please help interpret the next couple of examples. 

pictogram-2Our suggestions are: 1. A strange new moon cart. 2. You are allowed to use a fitness ball on the train. 3. Bike with one small and one large seat. 4. Something with Marilyn Monroe. 5. Don´t smoke cigarets in the wrong end!

  • If you stick with one particular form, you’ll likely save yourself a great deal of time and effort.

    but not everyone who has an online presence enjoys writing the content
    needed and that is where people like me come
    into play. This gives your readers a feeling of importance, it is
    like you have prepared the article with them in mind and that
    you have written it just for them.
