French term or phrase: pictogramme de transition
I know what "pictogramme" is, but I don't understand what is meant by "de transition" in this case. This is an outline of the key issues in a focus group about a seafood company with various brands: "Focus sur les elements visuels et les informations presentees sur les packs: relance sur les pictogrammes de transition avec les marques W,X,Y,Z (other brands): ces pictogrammes sont-ils visibles et repreres par les consommateurs? Ce qui est compris a travers leur presence, ce qu'ils indiquent des differents produits?"
Thanks, Karen

Your explanation makes sense and fits the context. I like "trial logos" best because it's immediately understandable. Thanks very much! Karen
