I require a set of icons for a book project (total 7).
The finished size of the icons will be no bigger than 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch - preferably circular or rounded in some way. Since they will be rendered in a print medium, and in some cases in monochrome, fewer colours is better (max 3 colours)
All icons should be thematically similar - but easily identified. If the word being represented can be included in the icon without ruining the look of the icon, it would be acceptable.
The following is a list of the 7 words requiring icons and a brief description of how each will be used:
"remember" - identifies key points as important to remember
"quick tip" - identifies a "quick tip" described in the body of the text
"exercise" - there will be various opportunties to practise the skills described in the book - these will be identified by the "exercise" icon
"quotation" - to identify and draw attention to quotations used in the body of the text
"caution" - identifies text in the book that describes things to be careful of or avoid
"example" - identifies an example described in the body of the text
"resource" - identifies a resource...like URLs where additional information can be found, names of books, etc
The most important thing will be to make them as easily understood and recognizeable as possible - and of course, appealing
