New Disabled Symbol15 Jul 2013
I found this article http://www.theverge.com/2013/5/25/4365554/new-york-city-planning-to-use-a-more-progressive-handicapped-symbol
that discusses a new disabled logo/symbol.
For all of my life I have only know the one and only ‘statue' symbol which has no character to it at all. I have often gone and sat in parking spaces where the symbol is and mimicked the stance. I never sit in that position normally and keeping my arms up is hard work (I have no arm rests on my chair).
This new symbol/logo I can identify with as it is an action I use to push my chair. I think the new symbol/logo has character and is ‘fun/active'.
I would love this new symbol/logo to be put into place of the previous symbol/logo. I also wonder if we can have more than 1 symbol/logo in the collection. Along with this ‘sporty' symbol/logo, we could have a ‘contemplative' symbol/logo and a ‘cheering' symbol/logo, etc.
I also found the article's comments interesting.
What are your thoughts on this new symbol/logo?
