Growth, a linear elevation

Directional symbolism and its’ reference has been a constant symbolism and metaphor representing progress and success in all cultures. For example, the Chinese idiom, 高高在上, directly traslated to ‘setting high above’, is used to describe someone of a prominent standing, it can also be used as a veiled criticism of someones’ aloff attitude, amongst from the masses. In literary usage, to ‘reach greater heights’, or ‘soaring above’ is also a common analogy to symbolise progressiveness or the attainment of success.

In the practical secular context, a business will view an accending graph as a positive; the better, aplenty ones’ resources and progress is, it is best represented by a directional pointer pointing up. 


An universally understood reference for progress indicator.
