Guemil is an open source icon initiative to visualize risk and emergency situations. It makes available a normalized set of symbols for diverse stages and platforms of information: Before > During > After an emergency.
Following international practice to measure effectiveness, icons were globally tested on meaning and differences established by users, allowing to iterate its visual language. Packed as an open source typeface, Guemil is a visual tool designed to simplify communication in critical contexts.
In Mapuche iconography, and according to Loncón (2011), the Guemil is a symbol writing system . It represents the domain of science and knowledge as well as manufacturing and the art of transformation.
