Sign system for the disabled
I created a first-of-its-kind pictographic and sign system for the Massachusetts
Department of Environmental Management to assist the disabled in enjoying the
full spectrum of recreational activities at Massachusetts parks. This program conformed
to the Americans with Disabilities Act with signs in relief for the visually impaired, in
grade 2 braille for persons who are blind, and at heights acceptable to persons in
wheelchairs. My client uses a wheelchair. He liked the levity of the backpack and
walking stick of the main pictograph. It symbolized freedom.
