From the people that brought you the Illustrated International Idiom series comes another brilliant set of illustrations. This time Viking Direct have focused on the different names for the ‘at sign’ from around the world. A spokesperson from the company said:

“From email to social media, the @ character has truly become a worldwide symbol. In English, we simply call it the ‘at sign’, but after polling our international team we found there are some strangely creative names for it around the globe.”

The office supplies company teamed up with the award-winning illustrator, Andres Lozano, to bring these quirky names to life. See the full series here along with a little insight behind each name.
