This custom symbol set is created to accent a person and their obsessions. A symbol is set on top of the head of the other symbol and this means that all a person thinks about is this object. For example, it is a cup of coffee on top of one of the symbols heads. This means that this person is only thinking about that one thing, coffee. Some of these icons have funny connotations to them where others have a more serious tone. Examples of the serious icons are the syringes and cigarettes. The more humorous ones are the game controller, fast food, and coffee icons. The only other one I haven’t mentioned is the main icon which is the top left one which embodies a satellite on top. This stands for a person being addicted to being tapped into technology, almost as though they are living with a satellite in their brain.
On a serious note these symbols could be used at a school for disignating certain computers for certain things. In a students circumstance, they will know what is allowed on what computer. These symbols can also be used in a hospital to show what a patient is addicted to and how to treat them.
The mouths all very on these icons showing what generic emotion would feel if addicted to this certain thing. That is why most of the negative ones have a sad face and the happier ones have simpler or happier faces. To keep this symbol set easily recognizable. All the eyes are the letter “x” and all the shapes of the faces are all the same. The name Addiction Addict is to being play to the Alcoholic Anonymous alliteration.
