On Our Sleeves Icon Collection

Kids don’t wear their thoughts on their sleeves. But what if they did? What if you could see what they are thinking? And feeling? To know what’s really going on in their lives, in their hearts and in their minds?

If kids could wear their thoughts on their sleeves, what would they look like? Our On Our Sleeves icon collection visualizes what you may see if you could know what’s on a child’s mind.

Each icon represents potential thoughts and feelings someone could have, using simple illustrations to symbolize complex emotions. Your experiences will define what these icons mean to you.
