I am looking for an icon to act as filter button (which on click will show a box with the filter options)
So I've seen a couple of results on google for filter icon and I've only seen by now funnels and some checklists.
What is your opinion, what should I use as an icon for a filter button?
Funnel has become the symbol for filtering. There's no reason to be original with icons since people often can't infer their meaning without tooltips because of their experience with computers or cultural/language issues.
