In a joint initiative ten interdisciplinary teams, consisting of design and law students, have created icons that are supposed to convey data protection information better than legal texts. The students from Klasse Kartak and the Institute for Innovation and Digitization in Law have tried to bring to life the requirement of meaningful data protection information with icons from the point of view of design, IT and law - Privacy Goes Iconic. In an online voting at Der Standard Rebecca Wenig's and Bemir Bilalic's icons were chosen as the winning designs out of four icon sets by different student teams.
