Critical Massive 2012 icons

Critical Northwest (Previously Critical Massive) is a week long arts festival mixed with camping in the Pacific Northwest. Each year a theme is picked to help inspire participants to create something to bring along. For 2012 an apocalyptic theme was picked and I was tasked with creating an icon system to mirror Mayan glyphs but updated for end-of-the-world new meaning.

The icons needed to be divided in to four categories, War, Death, Famine, and Conquest. Within each category would be five more icons, each with it's own story that would relate to games and activities through out the week.  
Each participant received a metal medalin upon arrival. These were produced using a metal injection molding process that allows the small icons to retain detail.
