Believe it or not, pictograms are one of the Earth's earliest forms of writing. Examples of pictograms can be traced back to Egypt and Mesopotamia from before 3000 BC. In the last few years, pictograms have been used for a variety of purposes -- to create simple products, for comedic purposes and to create memorable product designs.

In this collection of some of the best forms of pictogram usage, we see graphic movie pictograms designed as a tribute to iconic films, superhero pictograms designed for comedic effect, pictograms used to mimic a child's logo drawing, pictograms used to help children understand math and quite a few others.

Sit back, relax and enjoy this original collection of simple and effective minimalist pictograms used to humor, instruct and entertain.
