Accessibility & Design

We all know someone or have a loved one with a disability. Below is a great article from AIGA on design, and how to convey accessibility to buildings, transportation, and also about, user-centered museum information graphics. The isotype icons (below) are evolving, along with amazing Apps like BlindWays, providing clues to accessibility where gps fails, and AccessNow, rating the status of restaurants and concert venues etc.

This article has inspired me to think beyond my own small world. I’ll be looking around more to notice how these symbols are used in my city, at events, and utilized in public spaces I’ll be visiting this year. On the lighter side, so maybe, the martini glass should be a beer stein, and the boat should have a side view.

Please share.  Your thoughts are welcomed!

2018 Valentine Gift Ideas

I am a part of a busy team of ladies on Etsy. Once a month, we create a photo collage for each other to help promote our handcrafted items. Our name is SPS, or Strategic Promotion for Success. We are women from across the planet, and even though most of us have never met, we have become online friends. The collage I made below, is a segment of our tight-knit group.

This is a new design with a Native American style inspiration. To visit my Etsy shop, click on the photos of my seed bead bracelets below.
