Do you need to present a concept of a certain requirement, condition or demand specification in your document? Here are several ideas of symbols you can use to illustrate that abstract concept in one picture.
Line style symbols of expressing the requirement concept
If this light style graphics fits your presentation content, you can consider using one of those metaphors and pictures:
- Icons of a person with resume – expressing an HR recruiting requirements of competencies and qualifications of a candidate
- Speech bubble sign a metaphor of having a request or specific demand
- Bullseye icon to show a specific well-defined requirement goal
- Calendar, timer for deadline usually connected with a time-constrained requirement
- Checklists, documents pictures for the written form of requirement
- For technical requirement, you can show it by the icon of a paper sheet with a gears sign on it
Those symbols mentioned above can be found inside a collection of Outline Icons for PowerPoint, designed by our team.
Ideas for hand-drawn symbols of a requirement concept
If you can afford to be more personal in your presentation materials, try using those scribble pictograms:
- Todo list showing a request or status of fulfilled requirements
- Pin or Compass sign for expressing directions that a requirement sets
- Magnifying glass illustrating details of a requirement
- Calendar icon showing the due date when a requirement should be implemented
- Gears as a symbol of technical requirements.
You can find those visuals in the Scribble PowerPoint symbols collection.
