Designer Comments

This tactile icon is commonly used for heavy or full load on a washer or dryer.

This is one of three tactile icons created to represent washer and dryer settings - light, normal, and heavy. The shapes were created by Emma Echols, Graphic Design Student as part of an independent study (2016) at the Rochester Institute of Technology. They are modeled after common washing/drying icons. We started with square bases but move to angled, trapezoidal shapes. The square bases were too generic.
