Icons: What are the most intuitive indicator icons for a web application to mean "not yet started," "in progress," and "completed"?
Red means stop....or does it? I'm developing an icon set for a web application, and I'm looking for indicators to mean "not yet started," "in progress," and "completed." My inclination is to go with red, yellow, green, but my experience with traffic lights seems to indicate that green (you haven't started, so go), yellow, and red (you're done, so stop) might be more logical. Anyone have any suggestions on which would be more intuitive?
I'm very fond of the "staggered" content layout of this site, but I can't figure out how to reasonably duplicate it in CSS (with text instead of images). Any suggestions? [more inside] [more inside]
