We are two students at Uppsala University in Sweden who are writing a bachelor thesis. We wonder if you can help us. We want to ask you here in the forum what your thoughts are about icons in programs and games.
Are icons easy to understand in your experience? Did you ever come across icons that you did not understand or that you thought meant something else? Please share your experiences if you have any.
If you have a few minutes over we would also be thankful if you help us with our questionnaire. We want to examine if there is a way to improve user interface design further by examining how different people interpret icons found in games and other software. The questionnaire has 50 different icons in it and takes a few minutes to complete and is found in the link below. Link to a google form questionnaire:
(All the submitted answers will be anonymous and no personal data will be tracked, sold or shown to a third party or be used in any other way besides collecting and analyzing the numeric data for our thesis. Please do not continue with this questionnaire if you are under 18 years of age. If you are under 18 years old you will need your parents permission to continue.)
