I love the idea of the Creative Commons, and the more I create the more of a Commoner I become. Over the last while, I’ve had the pleasure of working with the CC team on a few different projects.
One aspect of CC licensing that’s always bothered me is the icons themselves. I’d like to mark my creation as being part of the Commons, but am acutely aware of the addition of a heavy visual on the illustration itself.
Following a conversation with Maha Bali and Sue Beckingham, I thought – why not create an icon relating to the context of the creation itself?
