What is the simplest way to add a running person, similar to the one to the right in this image in my body text?

exit sign, running man

I cannot find any appropriate unicode glyph or LaTeX symbol. Do I need to include a picture or draw something with tikz?

  • You can either create a TikZ sign or use available, like this.

There are some exit signs found at The Noun Project. See snapshot below:

I recommend reading the following answer to: Symbol or dingbat of a calculator?

A previous answer suggests using Inkscape. You can also print it as a pdf and then import it as a picture by using the graphicx package and the command \includegraphics{<image>}. Remember that LaTeX also allows for the direct input of SVG files. You can read the following question How to include SVG diagrams in LaTeX?

You should search for an SVG-version of that picture (for sure on Wikipedia) and open it with Inkscape. Export it to Ti*k*Z path with this extension.

Then just insert this figure into your text (and scale it):

bla blup \tikz ...; bla blup
