Gary Anderson, Designer of ♻

Gary Anderson (above right) and his original design of the recycling glyph.

“It has been called one of America’s ‘most important design icons,’ it is one of the most recognizable graphic symbols in the world and has helped to encourage global recycling. In some countries, such as the UK, the symbol carries such implicit meaning that it requires government permission to be used. Although the symbol is the most widely known of his accomplishments, Anderson has also made important contributions in the areas of urban planning and urban development.”
