ISO symbols

All those lovely little pictograms we see around us - where do they come from? Who designs and standardises them?

There's an interesting article here on the International Standards Organisation - if you scroll down a bit there's a little piece about Mr ISOTYPE himself, the visionary Otto Neurath.

I'm sure I've got a couple of articles by Jeremy Foster of Manchester Metropolitan University, who was doing some graphic development work for the ISO - if I can dig out the references I'll post them.
