I have by my desk Henry Dreyfuss's Symbol Sourcebook [1972 edition]. It contains symbols he collected over a lifetime - he died in '72. Rococo is the fad [Perlis says it comes before rubble]. Flat design dominates when clear communication becomes more important than signalling via fashion. There's a reason stop signs don't have gradient fills.
