Using iconography to describe something quickly without referring to details is a great way to communicate a message. Think of a toilet sign. It is also a clever way of helping people describe something complex by explaining the essentials eg man or woman. Applying this to the buildings around the town centre may hopefully give people the visual language to be able to see things in a new light, to remember them and to describe them better later on. Events throughout the year and historically could be represented by a symbol which some people would recognise and relate to.
