I like pips, but love skulls or dragons or whatever for a single face.
For dice with a single decorated face, I believe US convention is that the decoration replaces the 6; European is that it replaces the 1. (Maybe the other way round.) For this reason I don't have dice like that; I want to read them quickly without picking them up and looking at the bottom face to check.

(Several of the ones johndallman had made used custom pips elements of a flag, skull and crossbones, etc. and that works very well.)
