In T124191 we are working on a banner for automatically generated pages based on Wikibase data. For visual representation of the concept we were looking for an image or icon representing a database.
Using an image from Wikimedia Commons would be arbitrary and might end up showing a unwanted image under certain condition.
A better idea would be to use an icon from the OOUI library, but there is no suitable icon there.
I would submit a database icon idea to be reviewed and eventually incorporated into OOUI.
A database (or data source of some kind) is universally identified by a cylinder, I prepared a solid version and a striped one. Below please find a preview.
- Ensure it follows DSG principles and visual style guidelines.
- Clarify RTL language appearance
- Add to DSG Illustrator file, optimized SVG to icons folder and replace ZIP file
- Add to OOUI
- Update T141801: WikimediaUI (Codex/OOUI) icon inventory (tracking)
