Can anyone point to examples of web sites/applications that use only
graphic icons (no photography) and text/graphic type in the design?
Ideally I am looking for visually sophisticated sites that use icon
systems to label the content.

Thanks!

Tania

Hi Tania,

Last month smashingmagazine posted a nice article on their log about
site navigation, its trends and some nice examples. This might lead
you to some of the sites you%u2019re looking for.

There is also a nice small post about the mistakes made during the
design of icons. Not entirely what you asked for but it does give
some clear pointers on common made mistakes.

Hopefully I was able to help.
