Teamwork, harmony, synergy… How often do we hear these words in contemporary companies? Several, if not dozens of times a day. We are told to work together with our colleagues with combining effort, even if sometimes we don’t want to 🙂
According to Wikipedia, the word ‘synergy’ comes from the Greek language, and means “working together”. We hear and use this word very often, but how we can show it when we are talking about interaction or cooperation?
If you want to make your team believe synergy is important, use means to attract attention to this idea. Here are our ideas for showing this concept.
Modern Style, Neutral Symbols for Synergy
Above are icon examples from our style neutral flat icons collection. You can find there a bunch of ideas for synergy, for instance:
- three and four puzzles, grouped together in a circle, colored puzzles
- three men, representing teamwork
- two overlapping rings
- an icon for showing all elements are agreed within each other, can be used for presenting people or teams, working together
- two arrows for presenting synchronization and three arrows for a mutual decision
- networking symbol
Creative Style Hand-made Synergy Symbols
Similar to our modern collection, our creative style presentation diagrams rely on the symbolism of synergy being interpreted as:
- cycle symbols: hexagon shapes and arrows
- circular process diagram
- three-pieces and four pieces puzzle
- gears pictogram
- circular diagram and symbol of four arrows coming into one place
Simple and Hand Made Match Icons
After brainstorming about synergy concept, we came up with the idea, that synergy and match are closely connected. If there is no smart and right matching process, synergy can’t exist at such place or between people.
Some ideas on how you can show match in your slides:
- people, cooperating and shaking hands
- scales icon in neutral and creative style
- matching arrows and overlapping circles
- structure symbol for showing matched items
- a handshake and gears icons for showing matching process
